Interpersonal Relations for Business Results
Whether needing to improve internal staff relations for better productivity and morale or external relations for better sales, this course will provide a solid foundation for your staff to navigate complex relationships.
Based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), workshop participants will explore a deeper understanding of their own preferences and behaviors regarding communication, making decisions, and solving problems. They will then be trained to leverage this new awareness to identify and understand the preferences and behaviors that drive others. They will learn how to adapt and create a faster, deeper connection with those around them.
Workshop lessons will be customized based on the job functions and desired business results of attendees.
