What’s My Communication Style? is a communication assessment for management development training. It identifies personal communication style, helps employees and managers improve their interpersonal and people skills, understand communication behavior, and develop relationships
Communication is the very lifeblood of any organization. And effective communication skills are the building blocks for what is commonly referred to as “people skills.” If managers cannot communicate clearly and persuasively with employees, and employees with customers, then other vital goals are forever out of reach. Say goodbye to aspirations for capable leadership, teamwork, customer service, or even the ability to execute a coherent business strategy.
If you want to bring about meaningful improvements in communication skills, the best way to begin is to build a better understanding of personal communication styles and their effects on others. What’s My Communication Style is a proven training assessment that identifies an individual’s preferred style—Direct, Spirited, Considerate, or Systematic—and the communication behaviors that distinguish it.
Part of the best-selling HRDQ Style Series, the assessment and its supporting materials provide a practical and easy-to-use “language” that enables lasting insights into how to gain mastery over one’s own communication behavior and how to interpret the behavior of others—in any situation. What’s My Communication Style is a powerful centerpiece for management development and interpersonal skills training.

A Program for Using Courage to Transform the Workplace
We have high and often conflicting expectations of leaders. Be reasonable but passionate. Decisive but inclusive. Visionary but explicit. Powerful but humble. Add to that emotionally intelligent, caring, impartial, people-oriented, and of course, profit-driven. The list is so long that it often leaves leaders scratching their heads, thinking: how am I supposed to be all of these things at once?
The answer is courage. It's what enables a leader to face tough times and step up to the plate. It is what gives leadership its backbone.
Courageous Leadership is a comprehensive training package that introduces courage-building, a practice that guides leaders to meet challenges more readily, embrace change more fully, and speak more assertively. Courage-building is all about developing capable and confident leaders who can transform organizations. A combination assessment, workbook, and workshop, Courageous Leadership gives leaders at all levels the foundational skills and abilities they need to become more courageous.

Uses for Courageous Leadership,
Courageous Leadership can be used at multiple levels of your organization. It's particularly appropriate for mid-level managers, and it also provides many benefits to new and emerging leaders.
How It Works:
The Courageous Leadership Profile helps identify which type of courage leaders choose most often, and highlights which areas require more confidence. It pinpoints the situations in which they are likely to act courageously, as well as those situations in which they are most likely to "play it safe."
The participant workbook offers tips and techniques for raising one's scores in the area that would benefit from the application of more courage.
The Courageous Leadership workshop introduces people to a specific understanding of courage, illustrates how they can become more courageous, and demonstrates the vital role courage has in the workplace and our lives. Go to HRDQ, to find this tool,
