Handling S.H.I.T.
Dealing with difficult people and situations
Understanding your counterpart is the basic building block for successful interaction. Dealing with difficult people is always challenging. S.H.I.T. stands for stress, hypocrites, idiots and tempers and thus for the most important causers of stressful situations in professional and private life. But what is the best way to deal with them?
From critical situations and contact persons who always spread hectic and stress (stress) to the colleague who preaches A and does B (hypocrites), to the customer who decides unwisely by accepting the worse offer from the competitor (idiots), to the employee who is either choleric or phlegmatic (temperaments).
Through better understanding of critical situations and thoughtful responses, you will be able to deal more effectively with difficult people.
