Dealing with Difficult People explains where difficult people are coming from, and provides you with specific action steps you can take to neutralize their assaults and work successfully with them. Written by Dr. Rick Kirschner and Dr. Rick Brinkman, who teamed up more than 25 years ago to promote the health and well being of individuals, teams, and companies by empowering them with good communication skills, this entertaining and enlightening guidebook details: The four general intents that determine how people will react in any situation, and how to use them to understand the roots of a conflict Blending skills for reducing differences between yourself and a problem person Redirecting skills for using a growing rapport to change the trajectory of a problem interaction Personal techniques, from body posture to voice volume, for influencing behavior The 10 strategies for the 10 most difficult behaviors Projection strategies to motivate problem people to recognize their issues and change themselves Your life is filled with people who frustrate you, enrage you, and battle with you every step of the way as you work to achieve your project and career goals. It's time you stopped fighting on their terms. Dealing with Difficult People gives you an innovative and psychologically sound program for understanding and working with all types of people, not matter how destructive their behaviors, by proactively using their own internal drivers to disarm them and create more productive interactions.
