    Many work groups include a jerk, or two.  Despite the challenges of working with the jerk, she will remain part of the workgroup.  What can you do?  You can lessen the impact of the jerk’s behavior.  Some strategies involve working directly with the jerk.  Others focus on training and support for the jerk’s co-workers.   In this session we identify specific types of jerky behavior.  We then focus on how to handle difficult behavior in the workplace.  You will leave with ideas and strategies you can put into practice.
