Managing a difficult employee is challenging in even the easiest of times.

I know it's possible that you are simply trying to manage yourself these days but it's also important to know that you can use this time to connect with even your most difficult teammates in a more compassionate and empathetic way.

Today I am giving you 3 simple strategies that you can use to turn around the most challenging situation almost immediately.

Plus, if you are one of the 8 out of 10 managers who are feeling under-appreciated, under-recognized and underpaid, your inability to manage a difficult situation could also be what's keeping you from securing a senior leadership role.

We are living in an unprecedented time.  But with big organizational change comes even bigger opportunities.  And I want you to be ready.  This episode will show you how.

Enjoy and much love to you and your family!
