Managing Difficult Situations

July 19, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Hear practical strategies on to manage difficult situations and keep the relationship intact.

About this event

We spend on average 1,645 hours a year at work. During that time, it’s normal for us to experience difficult situations whether that be with a boss, a co-worker or people from another department.

How we handle these situations can dramatically impact the way we are perceived at work. If left unchecked, it can lead to a build-up of stress and resentment. And if we don’t handle these critical moments correctly it can limit our career progression opportunities.

Dealing with difficult people and situations is a skill, and when mastered it can help improve your morale, your relationships at work, and your credibility internally.

In this interactive panel discussion with senior female leaders, we’ll cover how to handle these difficult conversations with grace so that you can respond effectively without damaging your reputation or the relationship with the individuals in question.

Packed full of real-life examples and practical strategies, we’ll be covering:

  • the most common difficult situations we face with colleagues, bosses and co-workers, and how to respond effectively
  • when and how to hold difficult situations so that the relationship is kept in-tact
  • the power of the empathy – the importance of understanding the WHY behind the situation to create win-win solutions
  • how to best prepare yourself, so that you remain calm and keep your emotions at bay when faced with a difficult situation.
