We all have to deal with difficult people. Carlos complains to Steve about difficult people he has to contend with on a daily basis. He often feels like hitting them, which Steve naturally discourages. Carol offers her six ways of dealing with difficult people, explored by Steve and Carlos.

  1. Observe calmly, do not get sucked into people’s dramas.
  2. Listen and show empathy. Acknowledge people’s frustration.
  3. Focus on facts: see what people want, and what you can do for them.
  4. Ignore bad behaviors, no matter what people are dishing up (this can be easier said than done).
  5. Give feedback about bad behavior in a constructive fashion.
  6. Build your skills by rehearsing dealing with difficult people.

As Steve says, “be 100% Zen”. And believe it or not, dealing with such people helps you get to the next level.

WARNING - These videos are designed to provoke discussion and response. They are contemporary, fast paced, short, character driven TV style comedies that take a new approach to reaching today's learners. By laughing, discussing, sharing outrage, reacting to the behaviors on screen, we can use these strong feelings and thoughts to develop a clearer shared view of how we want to behave, how we manage these situations, and how we want our team to behave and respond.

Whilst some people find them insensitive or outrageous, the vast majority of viewers and users have found them refreshing, stimulating and great for getting energy and enthusiasm back into learning. X
