Program Description

Working With People Is Hard Even on a Good Day ...

No matter what your job is, we’re willing to go out on a limb and bet that working with people plays an important part.

In any given workplace, you’ll find dozens of different personalities, communication styles, and work habits. While there are some people that you’ll never be best friends with, maintaining a positive work relationship shouldn’t be impossible. That’s why we’re introducing How to Work With People, a one-day workshop guaranteed to give you the tools you need to make your day-to-day interactions less stressful.

Communication and Cooperation Don’t Have to Be so Difficult …
But sometimes they are. This workshop will show you how to harness the skills necessary for gaining the cooperation and support of those around you to get things done. What’s more, the communication skills you’ll learn will make the headaches, frustrations, and stress of working with people a thing of the past. The easy-to-use techniques you’ll learn at this workshop will help you build the professional relationships you need to thrive and grow in your career.

Gain Confidence and Be in Control of Every Situation
You’ll return to work with the confidence and power you need to work with anyone in any situation. From the negative peer to the know-it-all, you’ll handle every person and situation with ease and assurance. Whether you’re a CEO or new to the workplace, the ability to communicate with your coworkers, boss, and employees is crucial to your success.

It’s a fact of life: no matter how intelligent you are … no matter how technically savvy – nearly everything you accomplish in life requires the support and cooperation of others.
