Presentation Title: Minnesota Not So Nice: Navigating Challenging Personalities
Presentation Description: You've worked hard to get where you are. You've come in early, stayed late, and worked through more lunches than you care to remember. But that's not the hard part; not flipping over the table when that special someone makes yet another snide comment at your expense is the HARDEST of parts.
Here's the bad news: like mosquitoes, bad drivers, and poorly-maintained public bathrooms, difficult people are a reality of life. The badder news: most conventional suggestions DO NOT WORK. During this interactive session, Sherlonda Sharp will share the valuable lessons she learned after a three-year journey through difficult people purgatory and provide attendees with strategies/resources to navigate the challenging personalities in their own lives.
