Insights Into Personal Effectiveness

"Insights Into Personal Effectiveness” will enable participants to recognize how their key constituents perceive them and the work they are doing. Participants will understand how their own behavioral tendencies and preferences are perceived in the workplace. Participants will learn to make any needed adaptations to increase the effectiveness of their communication and leadership efforts. In addition to a better understanding of how others perceive them, participants will learn to comprehend the preferred communication and interactive styles of others by understanding behavioral cues. 

Objectives: Participants will:

  1. Gain a deeper understanding of themselves, their natural tendencies and preferences, how others perceive them, areas of strength and possible areas for development.
  2. Understand and relate more effectively with others, recognize other’s behavioral styles, learn about other’s decision-making needs and preferences.
  3. Learn to adapt behavior to connect powerfully with others, develop usable interpersonal strategies to connect and deal with different or difficult people, customers or colleagues.
