Further information

Numerous researchers have been urging for years that managers should also pay attention to emotional culture in the workplace. An environment in which appreciation is practiced automatically makes people happier. But it's not just the employees themselves who benefit from this. People who are happy also produce better results. Genuine leadership today requires more than just elbow thinking. Rather, leadership competence should consist of having an open ear for one's team and tackling problems together. This is precisely what we teach in our employee leadership course.

In the course Dealing with Difficult Employees and Customers, you will learn basic knowledge about conversation management, leadership skills and leadership. In small groups of a maximum of nine people, you will be taught over two days how to deal optimally with challenging people. The seminar takes place on the first day from 10:00 to 17:00 and on the second from 09:00 to 16:00. You will receive important input from our experienced coaches in individual and group work and also learn significant methods.

The course dealing with difficult employees and customers offers you the unique opportunity to revise your conversation and leadership skills in order to be better able to deal with challenging people. In addition, you will have the opportunity to discuss leadership in depth with the trainers and other participants. To round off the seminar in the best possible way, you will also reflect on your own expectations and be given effective methods to master challenges in dealing with difficult personalities in the future without any problems.
