About Us

TUF-Thriving Under Fire

Thriving Under Fire (TUF) is a training programme to help people deal with difficult people.

  • We have worked with hundreds of people since 1999
  • We understand the challenges people face when dealing with difficult people
  • Experiential learning helps participants feel what it is like to be heard and understood
  • People’s real life examples of difficult situations become the subject of the workshop
  • Principles and communication models are taught with these examples in mind
  • People practice what they learn and develop new thinking, feeling and acting in dealing with difficult people
  • Following the training, often the ‘difficult’ people are no longer difficult
