What is it?

From Mark Horstman, Co-founder:

"You don't realise how much your communication style is a deeply ingrained habit. 75% of the time at work your natural style actually gets in your way. We're going to teach you to see other styles, and change your own. It'll be hard, because you'll be uncomfortable, but you'll be amazed at how well it works. This is the best training I've ever created about the most important thing I ever learned in my professional life."

Recommendation

Tyler joined us for the Effective Communicator Conference.

He said: "When I say, “professional” I mean Dani and Sarah stayed on their feet with clear voices, clear speech, varied tone and examples to make sure the subject matter was thoroughly explained and engaging. Every question was welcomed and answered thoroughly while staying fanatically on-time."

Read more about his experience on his blog.

8:05 Agenda & Ground Rules - Review the detailed agenda, and interactively agree on ground rules for the day.

11:10 Observe Practice - Practice observing another person, multiple times, to learn how to see and hear behaviors.
11:40 Lunch & Email Communication Practice - How people with different DiSC profiles communicate using email, followed by practice determining the profile of an email’s author, and how to respond.
12:40 Analyze Practice - Practice observing and analyzing another person’s behavioral patterns and tendencies, multiple times, to learn how to see and hear behaviors.
2:00 Break
2:10 Tailor Practice - Each attendee will be tested on their ability to observe and analyze, and then tailor their own behavior to approximate someone with whom they’re having a conversation.
