Winning With Style: The Art Of Interpersonal Effectiveness In Business

Of the most frequent causes of executive career derailment, half are attributable to interpersonal ineffectiveness. It may be obvious that people bring wide ranging needs, values and styles into the workplace. Yet amazingly, the core of most peoples behavior tends to cluster around a relatively small number of themes. Without a framework to categorize these varied styles, leaders tend to operate purely on intuition. This is an inefficient, frustrating and unproductive way to interact with others. Winning with Style will help audiences:

  • Learn their own core interpersonal preferences
  • Understand the needs and motivations of others
  • Develop winning "sales" presentations
  • Become more emotionally intelligent
  • More effectively manage conflicts
  • Create conditions that people find highly motivational
  • Avoid generational warfare
