Dealing with Difficult People (Ethics)
May 4, 2021
12:00 PM (ET)
Immigration law is a profession that involves interacting with clients, colleagues, judges, government officials, and other individuals who can really test patience and push your buttons. This webinar teaches strategies for handling tricky personalities with greater command – without losing your cool.
By participating in this webinar, you will learn how to:
- Engage scared and upset clients who become increasingly overwhelmed as you try to explain.
- Encourage clients to be more honest with you.
- Handle disrespectful judges and government agents.
- Have more rational, productive conversations with anyone in your personal or professional life who you may be having trouble getting through to, collaborating with, or gaining cooperation from.
- Feel calm and in control in the face of difficult behavior.
