Dealing with difficult people

If you’re dealing with a difficult person, try using intimacy to create an atmosphere of possibility.

Some say there’s no such thing as difficult people, only difficult situations. I disagree. We’re all difficult at times, mostly because we lack understanding.

Look for the good in people, even when the situation has you feeling bad.

If it’s a customer, boss, hiring manager, or even a friend, when you create an environment for understanding, communication flows effortlessly, and once misaligned objectives become aligned.

Use intimacy to develop friendships and closeness with difficult people and or situations and you’ll create win-win partnerships that can last a lifetime.
