© International Baccalaureate Organization 2011 Session 3 – Managing Staff and Difficult Behaviors Managing Change
© International Baccalaureate Organization 2011 How am I a difficult person? (self-assessment) When working with others: do you worry more about getting the job done or maintaining a good relationship with the group? If you could have only one outcome, which would it be? When dealing with others: do you tend to be more aggressive, offering your opinions first, or do you tend to be more passive, waiting to see what others have to say? Are you intent upon defining the situation to suit your needs or are you more likely to hang back and look for opportunities?
© International Baccalaureate Organization 2011 At your most annoying and obnoxious, would those who know you best say that your primary need is: to get things done? for attention and recognition? to get along? to get it right?
© International Baccalaureate Organization 2011 Seven assumptions about learning to deal with difficult people There is no simple, foolproof way to deal with difficulty people; human beings are more complex than all the theories of human development. Learning to deal with difficult people is an opportunity to learn about ourselves. The only person I can change is myself; by changing my behavior, I can change how others deal with me. Labeling a behavior as difficult helps us identify and choose strategies; it is not useful for building a long- term relationship.
© International Baccalaureate Organization 2011 Seven assumptions about learning to deal with difficult people Behaviors of difficult people can indicate personality strengths. Although conflict is not acceptable in some cultures, change cannot occur without some conflict. Difficult people are identified as such because they block us from what we want. Newton, A. (1994).

© International Baccalaureate Organization 2011 Questions to ask yourself when dealing with a difficult person What is it worth to me to get involved? Am I clear about my goal? How is this an opportunity for me? How flexible am I willing to be? Whats really going on here? Do I think I can make progress here? Am I prepared for setbacks? Others? Newton, A. (1994). Mentoring: A resource and training guide for educators. Andover, MA: The Regional Laboratory for Educational Improvement.
