Communication Styles Team Report on iPad

Put It All Together

Communication Styles Training

Effective communication is a journey, so we provide whatever level of support you need to make deep, lasting improvements to the way your teams communicate.

What Communication Styles Can Fix In
Your Organization

Whatever challenge your team faces, it can almost always be tied back to a lack of effective communication.

Frustration and Conflict

People often think that the conflict caused by different communication styles is intentional rather than the result of natural communication tendencies.

Once team members realize that varying types of communication styles exist and learn how to better communicate with each style, frustration and conflict are reduced and may even be eliminated.


When different communication styles mix, the results can be disastrous unless team members understand each other's natural communication tendencies.

Miscommunication leads to irritation and resentment which ultimately deteriorates the effectiveness of the team.

By learning each other’s communication styles, teams are happier, more productive and better able to collaborate.

Ruined Relationships

When a team consists of opposite communication styles, it is easy to accidently offend one another. People who are action-oriented will approach communication in a completely different way than those who are people-oriented.

By understanding each team member’s communication style, everyone can become more intentional about how they communicate. The team will strengthen its relationships while creating a space where people feel safe to share ideas.

How Communication Styles Will Benefit
Your Organization

Communication is the foundational skill that underlies everything else.
When communication becomes more effective, everything else works better.

Everyone Is More Productive

What would it look like if your team eliminated the unnecessary conflict caused by ineffective communication?

Imagine being able to reduce the amount of time spent on fixing the problems caused by miscommunications and repairing damaged relationships in the workplace.

By identifying each team member’s communication style, needless conflict is avoided and relationships can be strengthened.

Stress Is Reduced

Simply put, ineffective communication causes a great deal of stress.

Time and energy is wasted addressing communication problems that could otherwise be applied toward your organization’s goals.

When you learn the communication style of each member of your team, stress and tension caused by communication errors will be greatly reduced.

Safety and Trust Is Created

When communication styles are recognized and understood, an environment of safety and trust is created. Ideas can be freely and openly shared without fear of rejection. As a result, teamwork and collaboration increases.

Through understanding and embracing the different communications styles of their people, teams grow stronger and more productive.

Research shows that effective communication is the fastest, best, and often most overlooked way to improve the success of a team.

Often the biggest workplace challenges are the result of minor communication conflicts that can quickly and easily be addressed, if only they are identified.

By investing in your team’s communication, you are investing directly into the strength of your organization.

The most successful teams are those where members understand each other’s communication styles and their own natural communication tendencies.  It’s not enough to take a passive approach and expect this level of understanding to happen on its own.

Organizations must be intentional about helping their team members identify their communication styles and learn how to effectively communicate with each another.

Communication Styles 2.0™ is the best investment an organization can make because it produces immediate, yet lasting results that directly impact productivity, workflow and company culture. All it takes to get started is a simple commitment to make your people your top priority.

Commit to getting started today before another day goes by where your team suffers from the challenges caused by ineffective communication.

“This was an excellent course and I came away with many useful tips which I have already begun to implement in my conversations. Anticipating a close friend’s communication style, I was able to help diffuse a bad situation before it could get out of control.” – Rachel Debaillon
