Insurance Institute of BC | #1110 - 800 W. Pender St | Vancouver | BC

Time: 8:45am – 12:00pm

Life seems busier and more stressful, resulting in more frequent situations where people are displaying emotionally heightened behaviours. Whether it’s a client upset over an increase in premium or an insured pushing back against a claim settlement, it’s not unusual for these interactions to escalate into disrespectful tirades. The end result tends to leave the recipient stunned and second guessing themselves. The goal of this workshop is to provide you with the tools to help you understand anger, to reduce these difficult interactions and ensure when they do occur, you have techniques to minimize the impact.

Seminar Objectives

  • Describe the neuroscience (brain and behavior) behind heightened emotions
  • Identify the 5 key ideas about human interaction that provide insight to why people behave and respond as they do
  • Learn the tools needed to de-escalate and calm a situation that is fast becoming contentious
  • Apply empathic listening, reframing and reflective skills
