  • case managers,
  • or anyone exposed to challenging interactions in the workplace.

Working with Others

 

Dealing with people who are distressed, angry or otherwise challenging to manage can be one of the most difficult part of someone’s role. This can equally apply to external customers and clients, or colleagues and employees. Providing training to people likely to be exposed to challenging behaviours, to enable them to better understand what is behind the behaviour and how to safely intervene or de-escalate the situation is important for the wellbeing of those on both sides of the interaction.

 

This workshop is designed for frontline workers including but not limited to retail, call centre, collections, customer services, complaints handling and escalations staff, case managers or anyone exposed to challenging interactions in the workplace.

 

This workshop aims to provide participants with practical skills and knowledge to deal with people who may present with challenging, abusive or
aggressive behaviour.

 

Delivery

 

Managing Challenging Interactions is a 4-hour, interactive, facilitator-led session face-to-face OR 2 x 2 hour sessions delivered via Zoom.
