Difficult People: Why They Act That Way and How to Deal with Them
Anything taken to an extreme can be a liability, including human behavior. While confident, cautious, or energetic people can be perfectly tolerable in small doses when working together, they can also be annoying or problematic when their behavior is over-the-top.

To ensure successful communication and collaboration in the workplace, it’s vital you develop the skills needed for managing difficult people. In this course, you'll learn about the four types of difficult people: dominant-controlling, analytical-obsessive, expressive-impulsive, and skeptical-negative.
