Any interactions in the course of our work can become contentious when people are under stress, have competing needs or simply misunderstand expectations. How we handle those situations can significantly impact our relationships with customers, vendors and teammates. This 1hour presentation will give many tips on how to maintain civility and speak clearly when tension is high.

  • How to avoid the mistakes of using aggression or the silent treatment when feeling upset with someone.
  • The importance of maintaining control of our voice tone and nonverbal communication.
  • Finding alternative solutions when the first option isn’t workable.
