How to better collaborate with different/ difficult personalities

 Programme summary 

You are spending a lot of time and energy attempting to collaborate, convince and motivate your coworkers. You have to manage conflicts. Sometimes you might feel at a loss, not understanding the behaviors and reactions of your counterpart. You realize you are not being effective, but not sure what else to do.

How can you be more effective? How can you better understand why the other person seems difficult? How can you dissolve the struggle, avoid misunderstanding and collaborate better?

This seminar will give you some tools (based on the Jungian typology) to understand the different types of personalities and better accept the other in his/her differences. It will enable you to de-escalate situations and better manage difficult interpersonal situations.
