The Smart Way to Deal with Stupid People
Monday December 7 - 7:00 pm
Most people have been in frustrating situations where the person in charge has stood in the way of the other person’s goals or needs. On Monday, December 7, author David Silvey will explain, in a fun and practical way, how to deal with these frustrating situations and people, and how to help the person standing in your way get what they want as well. He will demonstrate how to approach a crisis with a clear objective by developing an action plan that will harness anxiety and frustration and use it for good—for others and for one’s self.
According to the National Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18% of the population.* Learn how to capture the emotions connected to anxiety so you can achieve your goals. According to Silvey, anxiety often comes from fear which is what people experience when they sense they won’t get what they want, and as a result, are experiencing conflict and confrontation in their interactions.
David E. Silvey is the Communications Officer at Huntington Medical Research Institute in Pasadena, where he works for the President and Chief Scientist. He has a B.S. in Management Engineering from Grove City College and an M.B.A. from Regent University. He is one of 10 children and learned at an early age how to get what he wanted in the midst of scarcity while competing with the wants and needs of others who were equally important.
