- Do you ever find yourself in the situation where you could have sworn that you put the message across properly, but the other person failed to interpret it in the way intended?
- Or that, on a Monday morning, your colleague doesn’t even ask you what you did at the weekend, but after saying a quick ‘hello’ on his way from the coffee machine to his computer just carries on with his work? How rude!
- And then that same colleague always has a confused look on his face whenever you ask a simple question, because you supposedly did not provide enough details? How tiresome!
- And then there are those colleagues who noisily tramp through the office like unguided missiles, talking in the most desultory fashion, leaving others in a state of utter confusion. Surely these people are never able to get results?
Recognise the above situations?
These days a lot of people claim they are ‘skilled communicators’, but what does it really mean? Ultimately, communication is all about getting a message across to the other person so that they understand it the way you want them to understand it. In practice, that actually doesn’t happen very often. Different people have different communication profiles, the main ones being D, I, S, C. Without being aware of it, the presence of different communication profiles is the main reason behind most of the problems that people experience during various forms of interaction.
In this training course you will find out about the different communication profiles, which profile you have, and the characteristics of each profile. This will help you switch between the different communication profiles as appropriate. After this training, you will be more successful in terms of results-oriented communication, and you’ll be better equipped to get the most out of your own and other people’s potential.
