Positive Approach to Working with Difficult Behaviors

  • 07/09/2024
  • 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM



Each of us has experienced working with volunteers, coworkers, friends, or family that have habits or behaviors that are frustrating. Showing up late for a shift regularly, interrupting a training or presentation to share how what you are saying is wrong, breaking promises to complete certain tasks that risk important deadlines, and the list goes on. This presentation will discuss 6 of the most common difficult behaviors and positive approaches on how to help address and correct these actions to make for a better working environment for everyone.
