LMS208 - Powerful Communications Skills (Meyers Briggs Type Indicator)
Managers and employees, on all levels in virtually every type of business, agree that - "Ineffective communication is the Number One problem faced by organizations today." To meet this critical need for improved communication, we have developed a highly interactive and intensive, One-Day Workshop on "Developing Powerful Communication Skills," utilizing the most popular personality instrument in the world - the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). The MBTI helps people understand the following:
