How well do you understand your colleagues and/or direct reports? How about yourself? We all approach situations from completely different angles, which can cause friction and confusion when we don’t “get” where people are coming from. By understanding the behavioral and communication styles of ourselves and others, we can work from a solid foundation of mutual respect. Being able to hone in on “why?” and not “what?” is the key to understanding motivation and facilitating communication. Learning to accept differences while capitalizing on the diversity of work styles found in our groups and team members, aids in our own personal and professional development. This seminar provides both theoretical and practical application techniques through the use of open dialogue, group work, and/or individual exercises.
