Event Description

Every relationship–personal and professional–is dependent on communication. Successful projects and businesses depend on people accurately understanding one another. In this class you will learn to communicate with clarity, eliminate communication barriers, influence the actions and thoughts of others and respond assertively.

At the end of this class you will be able to:

  • recognize the strengths and weaknesses of your personal communication style.
  • identify the communication style of others and how it impacts their ability to “hear you.”
  • compose your messages to match your listeners’ information needs.
  • give and receive feedback respectfully and assertively.
  • professionally resolve conflict while being polite but assertive.
  • improve and strengthen your relationships with everyone at work (and at home).

Topics that will be covered:

  • Analyzing Your Personal DiSC© Assessment
  • Recognizing the Strengths and Limitations of Each Personality Style
  • Development of Your Approach to Personality Styles Different From Yours
  • Nonverbal Signals You Send to Others (Stress, Anger, Etc.)
