Dealing with Jerks: A Workshop for Managers

Let us help you neutralize the jerk in your life.

Most managers spend over 50% of their time mired down in conversations or paperwork dealing with people issues. Projects are delayed, late hours are spent catching up, and careers are stymied; your “jerk-related” issues can eat up valuable time better spent doing actual work.

Our “Dealing with Jerks” Workshop will allow you to:

  • Organize your day so that people issues are resolved quickly and don't come back to haunt you.
  • Navigate the quicksand of group bickering to move a project forward.
  • Direct employees toward completion of projects and achieving deadlines in a manner that focuses on the task, not the personalities involved.
  • Effectively address group issues that slow down work flow.
  • And much, much more!

Dump the problems caused by the workplace “jerk” and get back on track to a successful career with the new workshop in our HR Solutions Seminar Series.
