recognize within yourself if you display anything difficult and then realize that you need to work on it. Do you know any difficult people? How do you usually Respond to these People?

The Tank Pushy and ruthless, loud and forceful, or with surgical precision of a laser, the tank assumes that the end justifies the means. Expect no mercy! The Sniper This covert operator identifies your weaknesses and uses them against you, through sabotage behind your back or well

aimed putdowns in front of others Know it All This person knows 98% of everything. Know-it-Alls will tell you what they know- for hours at time- but wont waist time to listen to your inferior ideas. Think they know it all This person does not know much. They just think they do. This person exaggerates, brags,

misleads, and distracts. The Grenade When they blow their tops, they are unable to stop, and shrapnel hits everyone in range. When the smoke clears, the cycle begins to build again. The Yes Person Quick to agree, slow to deliver, the Yes

Person leaves a trail of un-kept commitments and broken promises. The Maybe Person They keep putting it off until it is too late. Then the decision makes itself and becomes nobodys fault but their own. The Nothing Person

You never know what is going on because they will never tell you. They give no verbal feedback. The No Person They say things like, What goes up must come down!. They are discouraging and they drive others to despair. The Whiner

There is a plan for their lives, but they are not in it. Instead they whine continually and carry the weight of the world on their shoulders. They never take responsibility. Poor Me syndrome. Are You That Difficult Person?

If you are, then maybe you need to work on Your attitude Its time to answer questions on your worksheet under What Employers Dont Want. Your attitude is the most important skill you can develop. Employers want to hire people with a great attitude. A bad attitude can bring down a

company. This person does what it takes to get the job done. A person with this skill does not need to be told what to do, instead they find tasks to keep themselves busy and efficient. Values are attitudes and beliefs about things we think are important

in life. Employers want to hire someone with good values that represent their company. Ethics are rules of personal behavior accepted by society. Code of Conduct. Employers are looking for people that are honest and trustworthy and always doing the right thing.

To be successful in a career, you will need good reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. Did you know the #1 reason people get fired is that they cannot get along with team members. Most jobs require a

person to work with others. Nobody wants to work with a know it all. There is always something new to learn You should always dress appropriately for your job. People do make an impression
