About this Session
As employees, we respond to ideas and messages in different ways, and we all have our own unique preferences and instincts for communicating and processing information. That’s why it’s likely you’ve at least once suggested a great idea to your team or boss that fell flat, or you’ve failed to understand a colleague’s creative approach or motivation to a particular problem.
Using the I-opt assessment as a framework, this session will provide you with added skills to listen, understand and communicate more effectively with team members and critical stakeholders based on their unique characteristics so that you can minimize miscommunications and maximize the team’s collective strengths.
(Note: A condensed, 2-hr. version of this session is available for $2,000. If interested, please indicate your interest in the comments section of the session request form.)
