Workshop: Flexing your social style to be more effective

About the workshop: The ancient phrase is ‘treat others how you like to be treated’ but how about treating people how they like to be treated?
In this workshop we will explore the four distinct Social Styles and learn how to adjust our styles to communicate with people from all four categories, thereby enhancing understanding, building stronger relationships and increasing our effectiveness.
We will also undertake some group exercises to practice changing our own behaviour in order to more effectively communicate with others.

Key takeaways :

  • Know the four primary Social Styles
  • Identify which social style is your primary one
  • Learn ways of successful communication with people from all four Social Styles
  • Consider how this can be used to build trust and understanding within business situations, thereby enhancing professional relationships to drive a company towards success.
