This 60 minute Lunch and Learn session is highly engaging and thought-provoking. Based on my ever-successful seminar series, it entertains and empowers attendees at all levels, allowing them an opportunity to reflect on their responses when faced with another’s difficult behaviour, and to become more confident and try out new approaches in future.

Though brief, the session covers the key points for dealing with obstructive or problematic behaviour. It provides over 30 tips and several problem-solving strategies, and discusses commonly encountered difficult situations and ways to handle them. The event is enlivened by the Q & A  and case examples throughout.

Not Perfect But Not Imperfect Either
