Taming Workplace Hecklers – Dealing with Difficult People

In showbiz, a heckler is a person in the audience who disrupts the show. In business, a heckler is the person who disrupts the flow. As a performer, Judy notes that there are (3) specific types of hecklers in an audience: bullies, snipers and buffoons.  +

In her experience working with business clients, Judy notes there is distinct correlation with hecklers in the audience and hecklers in the workplace, including customers.

The strategies that Judy has developed as a performer in dealing with hecklers are extremely effective in a work environment. Not only do these strategies improve the culture in the office, improve productivity, efficiency and decrease bullying and absenteeism, but they’re also always good for a laugh or two.  --
