    It's not what you say, but how you say it. Did you know there are four communication styles? Based on a person’s DiSC style, someone may be a Direct, Influencer, Steady, or Conscientious communicator. Knowing and adapting to the communication style of the person you're talking to can help you connect, ensure your message lands, and get more from the relationship.  In this engaging, and interactive presentation workshop, participants will learn how to people read and identify someone’s communication tendencies, preferences, and blind spots. We will discuss how colleagues communicate, think, make decisions, act under stress, receive feedback, prefer to meet, engage in conflict, and most importantly, how to influence them. Since the COVID pandemic, there have been significant advancements in how DiSC is delivered and leveraged to increase employee engagement and effectiveness, and to reduce frustration and turnover, even in virtual and hybrid work environments. For example, employees can now use an app to receive personalized advice on connecting, collaborating, getting buy-in, and managing tension with individual co-workers. The presentation will include a rundown of the newest tools, resources, and mobile-friendly platforms that you can use to help your organization improve workplace, management, leadership, change, and conflict communication with emotional intelligence.
