Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Portland, Oregon T he unavoidable truth: some individuals in your work environment can be hard to deal with—opposing counsel, witnesses, clients, judges, other lawyers and staff in your firm or organization—they’re everywhere. When communications break down, the ability to obtain favorable results decreases while the stress increases. It is rare that one seminar can help with job and life satisfaction for the rest of your life, but this one can. The knowledge and skills you gain from this seminar will empower you to get the results you want with difficult people. Proven strategies include: ✦ Recognizing and responding to different communication styles using a proven behavioral model as a foundation—practice specific strategies for gaining more commitment and cooperation ✦ Avoid common communication mistakes that can aggravate a situation—discover which reactions can escalate or alleviate a spiraling conflict ✦ Solve problems without bruising egos— “don’t take it personally” ✦ Dealing with the domineering or angry person—fight or flight? Neither is productive, so learn and practice how to hold your ground and command respect when things heat up.
