Dealing With Strong Personality - Webinar


Charlottetown (Online), PE [Map]
Date and Time: October 13, 2020 1:00 - 3:00 PM (Atlantic)

There are a number of people in the workplace who have a strong or forceful personality. This forcefulness can be problematic. These individuals can be a great asset to any team as they tend to be very decisive and typically they are very hard workers. But in some cases, the strong personality can also cause friction with co-workers and can create negative morale and motivation in the workplace.

Many people find this personality type intimidating, and in some cases, they can be difficult to deal with.

These people may be co-workers, customers or suppliers. Perhaps you are a Manager or Supervisor and have one (or more) of these strong personalities on your team. This course will help you to understand this strong personality type better and give practical skills and techniques to interact with them more positively and more effectively. Managing, supervising or coaching the strong-willed individual is often one of the greatest challenges for even the experienced manager or supervisor. This course will help you understand this strong personality type better and give practical help to supervise these individuals more confidently and effectively.
