Leader CommunicationSKU: 6156EF
Help leaders learn how to dramatically improve their effectiveness by arming them with the knowledge and skills to enhance relationships through enhanced communication.
The Leader Communication workshop is designed to explore the important links between psychological type and leader communication. Its primary goal is to enable participants to experience the practical usefulness of type while working as leaders in their organizations. In the most basic sense, we want the leaders who are participating in the workshop to see type a s a dynamic model that can assist them in communicating ideas and instructions to others and, equally important, in being effective listeners. Their type, which influences their perceptions and judgments about information, is an important factor in developing enhanced communication and leadership effectiveness.
This workshop emphasizes the critical role type plays in all communication and explores the rich differences in style. We will identify strengths of the different types as well as potential sources of miscues and misunderstandings. Through learning how different types approach communication, leaders have a greater chance to increase the effectiveness of their efforts.
When participants have completed this workshop, they should be able to:
- Readily identify specific communication patter ns, as well as the strengths of these patterns and potential issues that must be acknowledged and addressed
- Clarify and reframe information to better suit the communication styles of others
- See type as a tool for building stronger relationships among all individuals in the leader–follower equation
- Identify biases and hot buttons for listeners that distort meaning when they are communicating with others
- Communicate more completely and listen more intently
This workshop is designed as a full-day session (8 hours) and includes a one hour lunch break. However, as with all of the workshops in this series, you are encouraged to customize the workshop to suit your needs. If time is a concern, you can easily shorten the learning modules or present the workshop in two half-day sessions.
Facilitator’s Note: Participants should take the MBTI assessment and verify their 4-letter type prior to attending this session. The purpose of the workshop is not to interpret individual MBTI results or to coach individuals through the best-fit type process.
