What is expected? In a 1.5 hour, interactive workshop, you will learn the two main communication styles + how to tailor your communication habits in order to save time, minimize frustration, and actually get your point across.
Why is this an important topic? 70% of small to mid-sized businesses claim that ineffective communication is their main problem. Why? Because we do not all have the same communication style. Communication errors, whether at work or with your significant other, happen for the same reason — we don’t understand our differences. By learning the two main communication styles, you will become the communication expert among your friends and co-workers, and more importantly, you will have greater success in ensuring the messages you intend to send are actually being received.
Main Take-Aways

  • Learn to recognize two main communication styles
  • Identify which communication style you tend to use
  • Tailor your communication style to the listener
  • Check for clarity

Who should come? CEO’s, leaders, managers, administrators, marketing professionals, sales professionals, recruiters, engineers, and anyone who interacts with people.
