“Positive expectations are the mark of the superior personality.” – Brian Tracy
A person’s personality and character go together when creating their communication style or styles. Many workplaces and sports teams have began giving their new employees communication style assessments. When each team member knows, understands, and respects each other’s communication style you will find a game changing environment.
Types of communication styles in the workplace include (but are not limited to): Direct, Functional, Collaborative, and Influencer.
When considering the previous information for your workplace and team, think about the past. Does anyone come to mind that might meet some of these styles? Did you maybe handle their communication style wrong? Could you improve for the next team meeting or project?
Not everyone is going to fit into these boxes. Many of us are a combination of styles, but we can always find a way to communicate that helps everyone reach their full potential.
“If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” — Henry Ford
