Overview of the webinar

Just about every workplace has at least one difficult employee. In this webinar, we will identify the various types of difficult employees and various strategies that can be used to deal with them. Difficult employees can have an adverse impact on the productivity and morale of the workplace. At times it is necessary to have critical conversations with these employees. These conversations occur when a lot is at stake and emotions run high. The behavior of these employees needs to be confronted.
