Wouldn't it be nice if people wore signs so everyone else would know how to interact with them? Unfortunately, they don't. During your day, you live and work with a wide range of people: friends, co-workers, parents, students, administrators and teachers to name just a few. Sometimes these people can seem passive, aggressive, loud or inconsiderate. During this fun, interactive session, you will learn how to handle all kinds of personalities to develop personally and professionally.
