They’re Driving Me Crazy: Strategies for Dealing with Difficult People in Workplace and Life

Johnny Campbell, DTM, AS

Difficult people are everywhere. They affect our productivity at work and our happiness at home. In this program, we will discuss the various conflict management techniques for dealing with difficult people and methods for strengthening workplace relationships and team collaboration when dealing with difficult situations.

From Page to Stage

Alliee DeArmond, DTM

How do you transform a written story or article into something that works in the speaking arena? Often people write speeches unaware of the shifting dynamics between writing to be read, and speaking to be seen and heard. In this workshop you will use a six-step process to reshape a 5-sentence story into a speech. You will gain insight into story structure and will develop tools for enhancing every type of presentation.

Take It Outside! What You Wish Your Boss Knew About Toastmasters.

Elaine Lung, DTM

A club provides step-by-step instructions for success in a do-it-yourself sandbox that is “better than watching YouTube” or investing in a break-the-bank Dale Carnegie program. Most people don’t realize that these tools can improve their personal and professional lives. Pick up the tools in this session to make the most of the time you invest during club meetings.

Session Parallel to the Business Meeting:

Responding to Criticism

Arnie Buss, DTM

Do you find yourself in conflict with others – Friends? Family? Coworkers? Do you struggle at times to resolve those conflicts? This presentation focuses on specific ways that you can break through difficult communications with a simple, yet powerful, approach to listening empathetically. You will learn a simple, yet powerful and effective approach to listening effectively in difficult and even confrontational situations. Using this listening skill, you can transform any conflict into an opportunity for constructive resolution to a problem, a deepening of understanding and empathy, and ultimately an improvement to the relationship itself.
