Understanding Communication Styles
One way to increase effectiveness in the workplace is to understand basic communication style differences, and identify how you can modify your own style preferences to achieve results. Using a self-assessment tool sent prior to this interactive workshop, you will identify your style preference and communication strengths and challenges, and practice specific approaches for everyday workplace conversations, negotiations, and situations where your ability to stay objective and preserve or foster the work relationship is critical.
