3 CECs

Class Description:

Technology rules our world!  But what happens if we have to come face to face with an unhappy, even hostile resident/customer?  Or have to answer a hateful email message? People are angry, road rage is running rampant, and workplace violence is on the rise.  And many people carry guns! We are struggling to adapt to an ever-changing world.  Television news highlights the worst of us rather than the best and provides a forum for people to become famous for bad behavior.  This seminar is not designed to frighten you.  Anne is very sure that 90% of the time, we can ‘soothe the savage beast’, be a calming influence and prevent pouring gasoline on an already burning fire.  You can call it dealing with difficult people in challenging times, you can call it anger management; Anne calls it Practicing Peaceful Engagement.

In this class you will learn:

  • How to stay cool when under fire
  • Behaviors and words that are calming
  • Things never to say
  • Body language and facial expressions that rile and those that calm
  • When to speak and when to be quiet
  • When it may be time to call for help or walk away
  • Best practices in writing emails/letters to residents and how to respond to unfavorable reviews.
