Identify your communication styles

Topic: Professional Efficiency

As you are aware, some people are more talented communicators than others.

Some people find speaking in public easier than others. Words trip off their tongues more easily, they are able to select the right arguments, hold a gaze and synchronize their verbal and non-verbal communication.

Others find it more difficult to get their message across, adopting a more monotonous tone, failing to hold their gaze and communicating ineffectively.

Most of us lie somewhere between these two extremes – able to speak effectively but with varying degrees of impact. By identifying the different communication styles and their strengths, you will be able to identify and draw on examples of best practice. This, in turn, will elevate you to the ranks of an effective speaker!

Learning objectives:

Get to identify your communication style through a self- assessment exercise. A summary table will set out the strengths and weaknesses of each style. You will practice becoming more flexible in your style through a series of practical exercises.

Role-plays based on practical case studies will give you an opportunity to address each style. Through these practical exercises, you will become a more confident and impactful communicator:

  • Which are the several communication styles, and understand how to distinguish their similarities and differences.
  • How to identify your dominant style.
  • Develop your flexibility in communication situations.

Learning outcomes:

You would be able to identify the four communication styles and develop constructive relationships with others.

You will know what communication style works for you, and enrich it by drawing on the strengths of the other communication styles and adapting to the styles of others.

What our clients say about us – Berendsen

We had already put in place LEAD Development Centres for our senior leader group, and it was very important to introduce Centres that would work for our large population of Plant Managers across Europe. Cegos have been excellent partners in helping us get the design right, and then in the delivery of lively, action learning based programmes. I have greatly enjoyed seeing our managers have ‘light bulb’ moments!
