Dealing with Energy-Sucking Negative People


Negative people are everywhere and you probably have to deal with them every day. Negative people are tremendous energy drainers. They can consume time and large financial and human resources and they often stand in the way of new ideas and programs. Sometimes it becomes so difficult to deal with a negative person that we start becoming negative ourselves.


This program reviews some of the psychological aspects of what makes people so negative and presents practical suggestions and techniques to help you deal more effectively with the negative people you encounter.


Susan El-Shamy has an Ed.D. in Counseling and Guidance from the Indiana University School of Education.  Not only has she taught inside and outside of academia for many years, but she has also authored seven books, including topics on: “managing problem situations and difficult people” and “ideas for employee orientation.”  This instructor has spent over 20 years designing and delivering corporate training seminars on effective communication, interpersonal skills, effective presentations, team building, career development and management development.  She has also worked as a cross-cultural consultant for Berlitz International.
