DEALING WITH DIFFICULT PERSONALITIES
State Bar of Michigan
Lawyers and Judges Assistance Program
Do you know how to identify different personality types and have the tools to effectively deal with each one? Join Jeff Zapor from the State Bar of Michigan’s Lawyers and Judges Assistance Program as he helps us understand why some people may be difficult and how we can use this understanding to craft effective responses to their behavior.
