Communicate with Each Person in their Style
Understanding the variety of communication styles as well as developing adaptability skills is important to work with a diverse group of people where different perspectives are embraced. One tool that helps to facilitate that discussion is the DISC assessment. DISC provides a universal language of observable human behaviour characterised by different communication styles. It helps individuals become more familiar with their default behaviour patterns, communication preferences, beliefs or assumptions held about other styles, and how to become more effective and influential through flexibility.
In this workshop, participants will have an opportunity to understand each of the four communication styles, including their preferred style and how it impacts their interactions with others. In addition, they would experience how this tool translates to communication practices in the workplace such as working collaboratively, serving your clients or more.
