Communicating Constructively with Challenging Personality Traits

Even people with good communication skills, encounter challenges with particular people traits. Such traits may exist in a few of the people in your workplace, amongst your friends, or even a loved one. This training will assist you with identifying the value of effective communication skills and the disruption caused by ineffective skills. Learn tactics to avoid, and strategies for success, when communicating with challenging people traits.

Gallup StrengthsFinder Team Workshop

In the StrengthsFinder Team Workshop, we use the Gallup StrengthsFinder 2.0 book and the results from each team member’s StrengthsFinder assessment to discuss how each person can use their top five strengths to enhance their individual and team effectiveness. This workshop will help you and your team identify your strengths and create a culture where strengths thrive.
