Pre-conference Education Session: Combating Compassion Fatigue

Pre-conference Session Presented by Amendt_Logo

Managing emotions and assertive communication can be challenging when interacting with frustrated homeowners.  “Compassion Fatigue” is common when property managers and associations have to diffuse sensitive situations on a daily basis.

Why over-apologizing sets a dangerous precedent in management and communication 
The 1 strategy that most leaders never learn about interpersonal relationships
