Workshop Objective

Providing front line services is a tough job - this dynamic workshop provides clear guidance on how to make it as easy as possible by focussing on meeting needs first time. Yet all staff still need strategies for dealing with difficult situations and people - whether service users or colleagues. Delegates will leave with a personal action plan aiming to achieve better outcomes for everyone.

The aim of this one day workshop is provide delegates with the skills to deal with difficult people in the workplace. These may be patients, colleagues or other people they meet in work situations. By the end of the workshop delegates will be more confident in their ability to deal with these tricky situations.
