Analysing and Improving Communication

Engineering context

Engineers are often analytically minded and this influences their communication style and ability to fit into a team and work environment. By understanding your own style, and the preferred communication style of others, it can lead to an improved communication capability.

This one-day workshop provides engineers with a powerful analytical approach to understanding their natural communication style and adapting to different communication styles from their own. Based on the extended DISC behavioural profiling system, you will learn four natural communication styles and how to adapt your communication to relevant stakeholders such as engineers and non-engineers within the community and engineering profession.

The workshop also includes a report on your own style and identifies the implications of your own approach to communication.
