3 Ways to Deal With Difficult People

Have you ever found yourself dealing with difficult people? People who are hard to get along with? I want to give you three strategies to deal with difficult people. It starts with the acronym H.U.G.:

1. Hear them.
Step back and really hear what they’re saying, and then ask them, “Here’s what I heard you say. Is this what you meant?” Once they know that they’ve been heard, could it be that they may shift their behavior?

2. Do the uncommon thing.
Let them know that you care. Empathize with them. Let them know, “I understand where you’re coming from.” That doesn’t necessarily mean you agree with them, but to be there in that moment says to them, no one else has taken the time to go above and beyond—but you do, because you are uncommon.

3. Guide them.
Sometimes difficult people can project what is happening in them on you. If you don’t guide a person in how they should treat you, they will mistreat you. Really understanding how to guide a person in how they talk to you, how they engage with you, ensures that in a very difficult situation, you can remain respectful and honorable, but not allow them to use you.

Why Can't I Find a Job? - 5 Reasons Why

In this video, I’m talking to you if you've been asking yourself "Why can't I find a job?" or "How to get a job?" or "I can't find a job". You are looking for job interview tips because you just can't seem to be the perfect fit for the jobs that you do get interviews for or you have thoughts that you are not good enough, and your job search strategies are landing you zero interviews or job offers. You are someone who lacks career growth and potential because you don't feel confident about yourself and losing hope.

Specifically, I give you 5 potential reasons on why you may not have landed your dream job offer yet and what to do to fix that:

1. Looking for a job has become a chore, no longer an exciting endeavour.
2. You place all your hope in the next job interview you get called for and feel disappointed when it doesn't work out.
3. You feel, very simply, that you're " not good enough".
4. You're not expressing professional presence.
5. You're feeling desperate rather than excited.
