Managing Difficult Personalities Friday, July 12, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. UAA Beatrice McDonald Halll (BMH), Room 116 (capacity 65)* Cost: $0.00

Not all employees are the same; some personalities are easier to interact with than others. Just about every workplace has a diverse blend of personalities and preferences. Learn how to communicate and facilitate a positive working relationship with any personality type. We will also examine the role of attitudes and perceptions, along with how to make the most of our diverse relationships with others.

How you will benefit When you leave this session, you will:

  • Develop insight in managing different personality types in the workplace;
  • Develop a cohesive team through individual strengths and differences; and
  • Identify your own attitudes and perceptions of people who are different from you.

This is an in-person seminar. Feel free to bring your own lunch. For those outside of the Anchorage main campus, contact mlyerkes@uaa.alaska.edu for Skype call in information at least three days prior to the event.

*Please note the new location for this seminar.
