Communication style is the way in which we communicate, a pattern of verbal and nonverbal behaviors that comprises our preferred ways of giving and receiving information in a specific situation. If the message content is the what and the communicators the who, then communication style is the how. They are broad in scope and encompasses many specific patterns we engage in every day. These communication style preferences reflect our personal and cultural upbringings. Workplace and team misunderstandings and conflict are often attributed to a misjudgment, misperception or a mere misunderstanding of someone’s style. Attend this workshop to find out all the different styles continuums and how to relate to and work effectively with each one.

Goals and Outcomes:
• Learn the range of intercultural communications styles (low/high context; linear/circular; direct/indirect/intuitive; formal/informal; detached/attached; task/relationship) that can impact perception and communication effectiveness.
• Identify your own personal style preferences.
• Examine how knowledge about the different styles can avoid misperceptions, conflicts or negative communication impacts.
• Learn tips, skills and tools on how to best communicate across different styles.
