Most difficult people don’t choose to be difficult.
They don’t wake up and think “I can’t wait to make other people uncomfortable today!”
In fact, until pointed out to them, most of them have no clue.
They actually wake up and think its YOU or someone else that is difficult… (just sayin’)
They are just being who they are.
One of my favorite questions to ask difficult people is:
“Who is the person other people meet, when you feel (insert here) happy, mad, sad, glad, worried, irritated, mad, resentful, etc..?”
We have to help people meet themselves as others do.
This is what I do with my leaders and with the people I coach.
Once you’ve met yourself as others do, you can decide if there is alignment between who you think you are and who others experience.
We can choose to supervise ourselves in a way that is authentic.
Difficult people are fascinating to me. I love a good challenge. Since I’m keen to why people do what they do and how to help them change, it really doesn’t matter WHAT their ‘difficult’ is, I know I can partner with them to solve their issue. If they want to solve it.
In our work together I’ll teach you how to deal with any difficult person you encounter at work.
Join THE CORE and coach with me twice-a-month.
It will be amazing.
I’m SURE of it!
