Interpersonal Style Workshop

“Managing Relationships Effectively”

This day and a half workshop is designed to help you understand more about how others see you as well as to learn to view others with greater understanding, patience and respect. This foundation of increased understanding is the basis for improving every working relationship.

Understanding Self
This course will help you better understand your interpersonal style at work. You will receive anonymous feedback from those you work with, including employees, peers, customers/patients, supervisors, etc. Feedback dimensions include dominance, sociability, and tension/comfort . This feedback will allow you to better see the impact of your behavior on others and how they view you.

Understanding Others
You will learn to identify the interpersonal style of others and how each interpersonal style can benefit the organization or team. You will also learn how different styles predictably respond under stress. Understanding interpersonal styles will allow you to work more effectively with others. Strategies for working more successfully with each interpersonal style will be discussed as well.

Action Planning
The goal of the workshop is to prepare you to work more effectively with others. You will learn how you can adapt your style to be more effective with anyone you work with. You will make action plans to improve your working relationship with one or more current work associates.

Interpersonal Style Survey
A multi-rater survey is used to gather feedback from co-workers who are important to a person’s success on-the-job. The feedback is presented in a Profile format that shows graphically, and relates in narrative form, information about a person’s interpersonal style. The Interpersonal Profile has been thoroughly researched and validated – and since feedback comes from several sources, including a self-rating, it is possible to answer the question: “Do I see myself as others see me?”, with a high degree of accuracy.

Based upon an individual profile, a person is able to determine how his or her own style impacts others, and to practice skills aimed at better managing relationships among work group members.
