How To Deal With Participants From Hell

How To Deal With Participants From Hell

There's a common nightmare among those who run development workshops. It is guaranteed to rouse us from a deep sleep and transform us into feverish, agitated blobs of jelly. That nightmare features close encounters with malcontent participants who seem hell bent on derailing the entire event. What actions can you take to minimize the damage - to yourself, other participants, and the "difficult" individual - when your nightmare becomes a reality?

Join your fellow colleagues as we empathize, sympathize, and learn together! Our discussion will be inspired by a recent article from TrainingZone.

Breakfast Available On Site!

American Honda graciously provides coffee for the RoundTable sessions. The on-site Starbucks conveniently opens at 7AM for your breakfast needs!

Our Session Format: The RoundTable

The RoundTable is an exciting approach that stimulates incredible conversation and insight around the topics and trends impacting our discipline.

We will read the selected piece aloud together for about 15 minutes. Then for the next 45 minutes, we offer everyone in attendance equal time to share their thoughts and experiences on or around the topic. Come explore with us!

The GEMS RoundTable format is provided by Sue Gabriele, President and Owner, Gabriele Educational Materials and Systems
