Guided workshops led by On The Edge to help you and your team understand Social Styles and their impact on team dynamics.
Social Styles Overview
Why do people do what they do?
Understanding and appreciating your Social Styles and that of your team members can increase team effectiveness, improve communication and build trust. Conflicts decrease when people understand how ways behaving impact relationships and when they learn strategies to improve teamwork.
It is especially important for leaders to understand Social Styles and the implications of these styles in relation to personal and team dynamics. Because Social Styles are a common source of workplace conflict, it is virtually imperative for leaders to understand the four Social Styles and their combinations to make informed and strategic leadership decisions. Social Styles is a useful interpersonal tool for all established and emerging leaders alike.
