How to Deal with Difficult People (CAEB 47)

If you are like most internal audit leaders, you have a lot of difficult people you need to deal with on a daily and weekly basis. It can not only be exhausting, but if we don’t handle things correctly it can negatively affect our career.

Instead of a video this week, I suggest you take a listen one of my Jamming with Jason podcast episode: “Dealing with People You Can’t Stand with Dr. Rick Brinkman.”

Rick is a heavy-weight champ in this area. He is the coauthor “Dealing with People You Can’t Stand: How to Bring Out the Best in People at Their Worst” which has sold over 2,000,000 copies and has been translated into 25 languages.

Yep, you read that right. Over 2,000,000 books means Dr. Brinkman is one of the best in the world at what he does.

If you are like most CAEs and find yourself thinking, “why didn’t I join the CAE Forum last time,” you are not alone. I’ve heard this from several people in the last few weeks.

The situation many CAEs find themselves in makes them pause and realize they could use a little help from their friends.

“Things are fine until they are not, and that’s when I needed help. I found the help I needed in the CAE Forum community.” – CAE Forum Member

If you are ready for a little help now, consider joining the CAE Forum.

Membership in the CAE Forum is not for everyone, and not everyone who applies can join, but it may be exactly right for you.

It is an exclusive community of only CAEs where you have access to like-minded peers and confidential advisors. It’s like a roundtable on steroids, where you don’t have wait until the next quarter to get help.
