Does “Winnie the Whiner” work in your company? How about “No Way Ned” or “Passive Patti”? For the first time in history there are four generations in the workplace and a strong emphasis on individualization.

How do you deal with all the differences? Do you know what your communication style is? Do you think about the communication style of others?

This seminar identifies unwanted behaviors and describes different styles of communication offering strategies to turn conflict into cooperation.

The seminar will cover:

  • How we got here – generations and expectations
  • Who are the difficult people?
  • What’s your style?
  • What’s their style?
  • Strategies- blending, redirecting listening, trying it out.
