Solving the Mystery of Interpersonal Communications
The hardest skills in business (and life) are working with other people because everyone has different beliefs and a different view of how work should be done. It seems like a mystery, but it doesn’t have to be.
You can overcome personality conflicts and dynamics that interfere with productivity by learning how others like to operate and communicate in comparison to you. Using a TTSI DISC assessment, we’ll explore your unique work and communication preferences compared to others. You’ll gain new perspectives and the guidance that will increase your influence and success with others.
Great for: individuals and teams
