Week 1: Clean talk

In this first module, we will teach you the fundamental tool for dealing with Difficult People: to use Clean Talk. Clean Talk is the Shadow Work version of Non-violent communication where you will understand how certain ways of speaking your truth can be very hurtful and how to speak in a way that you can be heard.

Week 2: Warrior

In this module we will dive into what to do when you judge you difficult person to be a bully, or too aggressive, and you are fed up with them always charging ahead without checking in with you.

Week 3: Sovereign

In this module, we will dive into what to do when your difficult person is just dreaming about things but never take any action, and their inability to take action is grinding on you.

Week 4: Lover

In this module we will dive into what to do when your difficult person is just emoting to much, is all over the place, and their chaos is driving you bananas.

Week 5: Magician

In this module we will dive into what to do when your difficult person is always in their head, or their procrastination make you cringe.


Access to the Shadow Types Survey to find out what archetypal house you spend most time in and which one you avoid.


A chart with easy phrases to calm down your difficult persons’ inflation and triggering behavior.


An extra QA session at the end of the training.

Have you ever wondered why difficult people are so difficult?

You know, the ones who…

… leave you frustrated
… derailed the meeting
… created a conflict, or an impasse
… destroys the meeting, leaving you frustrated and with a sense of lost connection
… are always whining and complaining
… leave you feeling bullied and not heard
… you wish could just “get a grip of themselves”
… manipulate you all the time
… drains your energy by their constant need for support, or chaos

Dealing with Difficult People – In Six Easy Steps

How to create psychological safety with acceptance and compassion

In this training we will take you on a journey of all the different ways you can transform a difficult person into an agreeable person, or at least a person you can deal with…

You will learn how to …

… maintain connection in times of stress and difficulty
… de-escalate situation and restore the balance and harmony in any situation
… recognise your perception of the world and why this person is difficult “for you”! 
… be in action vs reaction
… be at choice in your interactions
… move from being in effect to being at cause of the situation
… recognize that their behavior is NOT about you
… identify and use your internal state/reaction as an access to shifting your perception of them and thus be able to shift the dynamic of the situation
… use your “street-read” (your initial judgment such as they are too much, angry, snobby, emotional etc.) of someone as your superpower to transform difficult people into engaged team members, good friends, nice neighbors, and productive colleagues.

You will gain the capacity to have …

…difficult people become people you don’t mind hanging out with, working with, having family dinner with.
… difficult people shift their perception of you, so they want to engage with you in a more positive way.
… transformative interactions, with challenging people, that empower both you and them.

How to transform Impossible people into Possible people

There is a wide range of behaviors that we perceive as being difficult in other people, and in this training we will look though the lens of the four archetypes. You will learn how to apply the six steps that will help you to deal with each of the types of difficult people, and enable you to recognize their behavior, de-escalate the situation, and restore balance to the relationship.
