Communication is much more than the words exchanged: each of us has different behavior styles, filters and judgments which influence the effectiveness of our communication.
DISCover the power of different styles. Connect – smarter and better. Develop smart strategies for dealing with stress. Communicate with more clarity. Give meaning to your interactions. Meet the challenges in your work, family and social life. Challenge yourself to engage others to the best of your ability.
This may come as a surprise to you: we don’t work in a vacuum. We (yes, you!) are surrounded by individuals with individual needs, objectives, and concepts.
Individual personalities often dictate the entire culture in a workplace. However, there needs to be balance. Everyone must feel comfortable sharing their opinions and ideas, and those individuals must also be willing to receive and process others’ ideas and revelations.
Often, the basis of such synergy stems from effective and productive interpersonal communications practices. Purposeful, constructive, communicative bridges must be built so that goals can be met and business strategies can progress and evolve.
Conflict, change, and stress are a regular part of everyday organizational life. The key to employee survival is resilience, the ability to bounce back after adversity. Being resilient doesn’t prevent tough challenges from happening, but it does provide individuals with the strength and wherewithal to recover and move on time and time again.
Developing resilience is a lot like engineering a building to withstand an earthquake. It requires a solid foundation and a flexible structure that won’t crack or crumble under pressure. In human terms, it translates into self-esteem, connections with others, mental agility, and effective coping strategies.
This workshop enables you to analyze the reflection you see staring back at yourself in the mirror in order to help you put your best foot forward. By putting your best foot forward you open the door for your colleague as well.
Workshop Objectives Learn how to create more effective (business) relationships by:
- Recognizing different communication styles (including your own)
- Understanding how they promote or frustrate clear communication
- Understanding how stress impacts our ability to communicate
- Understanding the various styles in your surroundings (family, organization)
- Leveraging this knowledge through greater confidence
This basic 3 hour workshop blends an experiential presentation of communication concepts combined with knowledge. We present content of this topic from two different perspectives: behavioral styles and stress management.
