In my last post, I described seven types of difficult people I’ve encountered since leaving academia. Here, I’ll talk about how I deal with those people.

In a previous role, I managed a staff of 15 people. While my staff was generally fantastic, I spent a lot of time addressing personnel issues. Mostly I had to deal with how a particular client base addressed my people, but I had a few “snowflakes” on my staff as well. So I’ve been in a manager’s shoes and I’ve been on the other side, dealing with difficult managers.
