Dealing with Difficult Clients

Resolve Challenges and Differences when Dealing with Others

Wouldn’t it be great if all of our clients and colleagues were pleasant, helpful, and wonderful to deal with?

The reality is, sometimes we have to deal with clients or colleagues who are unreasonable, maybe even hostile, or who may simply drive us up a wall. How can we satisfy business goals, maintain mutual respect and not lose our cool?
