Learn Over Lunch - Topic #4

Understand Your (and Your Workmates') Operating Styles
(1 CEU)

Many of the conflicts that arise between people in teams have to do with differences in individual styles of reflecting, interacting, and problem solving. Failure to recognize these very natural differences and failure to capitalize on the strengths these differences connote lead to missed opportunities. It is useful to share a common language about styles, to understand what varying profiles mean for interactions, and to know how to work with colleagues who have similar and different styles from their own. A difference in style does not mean that people cannot work together; often it is the lack of understanding about how a person with a different style sees the world that leads to conflict.

This workshop will help you and your work teams understanding similarities and differences in styles, to create ways of connecting and build bridges to understanding.

This class is appropriate for all team members.
