Basics of Style (RTL)


Notify me when back in stock

Successful companies help employees to recognize their personality traits and how to modify behavior when interacting with others because it helps to establish more effective teamwork, resolves reoccurring work conflicts, and builds communication.

Personality style by definition is the way a person acts when they are able to do things to their own preference. You may like to behave in a particular way, and that behavior comes to light when you have the freedom to do what you want to do. For example, some people prefer a regular routine, while others thrive on variety. Some people excel at handling details, while others would rather focus on big-picture issues. These preferences are a result of personality style.

Personality style differences account for workplace conflicts and miscommunication and they negatively affect productivity and morale. The Basics of Style will help you recognize your own personality style as well as the styles of those you work with. Using that information, you can adapt your behavior to improve communication, effectiveness, and success in the workplace.
