How to Deal with Difficult People in Business and in Life!

Suman Kapur, CEO and Professional Development Coach and Consultant,
Well Balanced Solutions,
NAWBO Greater DC

At some point (or many points) in our lives, we will face difficult people, whether at work or at home. These challenging people seem to defy logic. Some may unconsciously be difficult while others seem to thrive on the chaos. It’s easy to let an unreasonable person affect us and ruin our day. Studies have shown that stress can have a negative, lasting impact on the brain and our overall health. What are some of the keys to empowering yourself in such situations?

When dealing with difficult people, the main takeaway is YOU are in CONTROL more than you think. We will discuss effective strategies that will enable you to control what you can and let go of things you can’t control.

Special NAWBO Town Hall: NAWBO Advocacy
November 18th - 12 to 1 pm
Elle Patout
NAWBO Director of Public Relations

What does it mean to be a member of NAWBO and be an advocate for women business owners?

Earlier this fall, NAWBO National released the Advocacy mission statement and legislation litmus test for all of NAWBO. Join us for town hall to discuss the new mission statement and how your chapter or state entity should use the NAWBO Litmus Test.

NAWBO Advocacy Mission Statement:

NAWBO advocates on behalf of women business owners, regardless of political affiliation, encouraging and supporting bipartisan legislation focused on building and strengthening a sustainable business economy. NAWBO's bipartisan approach guarantees us a seat at the table, regardless of the current political trends, assuring that decision-makers on both sides of the aisle hear the women-owned business voice.

To represent members nationwide, NAWBO National encourages everyone to join this town hall to learn how we can boost our advocacy efforts and keep women business owners vibrant.
