How to Deal with Difficult Clients
With Yvonne Caputo
Sometimes as we journey with clients on an assignment, what appears to be a dream project can turn into a nightmare when clients become difficult. They move the goalposts on us, can be disruptive or destructive, or exhibit dysfunctional behavior. This can make it difficult to deliver a project effectively and efficiently.
As consultants, we pride ourselves in being able to respond to the needs of our customers. But these unexpected situations can be both frustrating and costly. How do we respond when a client becomes difficult? In this buzz session we will explore:
· What are the reasons clients can be difficult?
· What strategies are available to us for handling difficult client situations?
· How do we recuse ourselves in a professional way should the project become untenable.
Join Yvonne Caputo as she guides our buzz session identifying best practices for successfully navigating through difficult client situations.
