Managing the "Unmanageable": Tough People, Tough Situations

One of the toughest parts of a manager’s job is dealing with and turning around problem employees. Whether it’s passive/aggressive direct reports or conflict resulting from generational or cultural differences, the issues are complex and filled with emotion. The solutions aren’t always found in “Management 101”—but in this course, you’ll gain skills and tools for resolving situations and keeping problems from getting out of hand. You’ll also work through your toughest situations with the help of guided role plays, exercises and skill practice sessions.
