What does it mean to be “HYPERSENSITIVE”? Why are most managers enablers when it comes to dealing with hypersensitive people, and how can they avoid this fate? In 1993, the U.S. Supreme Court defined hypersensitivity in the workplace by asking, “Would the reasonable person in the community be offended by this?” How do we apply this definition?  What coaching process should we follow when dealing with hypersensitive people? What games do hypersensitive people play with you?

Learning Objectives:
Define and identify hypersensitivity
Explain how to coach people who meet this definition
Describe how to avoid being an enabler
Recognize the games hypersensitive people play with you
