Dealing with Difficult People from an HR Perspective Presentation Developed by: Donna Rogers, SPHR
Program Description Every company has at least a small percentage of naysayers, complainers, and unfortunately folks with issues. Whether it’s a personality conflict or someone who has not taken their last several doses of drugs, as an HR professional, you’re going to hear about it, be brought in to it, or be the victim of said “Difficult Person”. Are you alone? Absolutely not! What can we learn from others who have been there done that? In this session, we will explore difficult situations that arise from dealing with difficult people in our role as HR professionals. We will share ideas for dealing with these issues in the most professional, respectable, and swift way. Audience participation (without naming names) is a must for remarkable results and sound take away strategies to use back in the office.
