Make Difficult People Disappear:  How Emotional Intelligence Will Help You Eliminate Conflict


Monica Wofford


We all have at least one person we wish we could make disappear...without getting into trouble!  It's not magic.  It's proven methods to communicate, mediate, and resolve stressful misunderstandings, happily ever after, and no one gets fired or mired in continuous conflict.


Monica's presentation will make you laugh at how you engage difficult people and fuel their fire, but more importantly, it will equip you with the ability to no longer perceive them as difficult, no longer spend time treating them with difficulty, and no longer fill your days with the drama that ensues when arguments erupt at the office.


Monica Wofford began her speaking career 25 years ago giving her first keynote speech at the age of 18 to more than 8,000 fellow students.  She has been a leader and manager for more than 20 years and has professionally trained others to be better leaders since 1996. Her Orlando based training firm, Contagious Companies, was founded on the premise that leadership is not something you are born with, but can be developed.  Her client list includes organizations such as Microsoft, Estee Lauder, the FAA, and SeaWorld.


The author of the highly acclaimed Contagious Leadership, and Make Difficult People Disappear, in addition to numerous other books and learning tools, Monica has engaged audiences in all fifty United States and seventeen countries. Monica earned her MBA in 2003 and has since earned the honor of Certified Speaking Professional. Winner of numerous accolades and honors, Director on the National Speaker's Association Board of Directors, and one of 215 women in the world to hold the Certified Speaking Professional designation, Monica Wofford engages, informs, entertains, educates and transforms leaders.
