Using Communication Styles With Teams
Communication Styles 2.0 is powerful when you use it as an individual, but the power multiplies when you use it to help a group of people understand each other. Here are two quick ways to put it to use to help everyone on your team be more effective almost instantly.
The Simple Power of Team Maps
So far we’ve talked only about how to use Communication Styles 2.0 to understand the Style of one person at a time, but this technology can be used to great benefit with teams and groups of all sizes.
The key is to create a team map like this one we created for the team at 366 Solar.
All you have to do is take the names of the team members and place them around the outside of the Circle next to their communication style. Then you can look at the map and instantly see who communicates well with each other naturally and where the difficulties are likely to be.
In this example, since Morgan is across from Reed and Mitchell you can readily see there is likely to be a challenge here. Reed and Mitchel will probably communicate easily with each other but will be challenged by the action motivation and task orientation of Morgan.

Why Use Communication Styles With Teams
The Secret Weapon
Team members don't always have time to read a book or take live or online training. Even when they do, it's hard to remember and implement what you've learned.
To solve this problem, every team member gets a How To Communicate Best With Me link that they can give to other team members (or anyone else).
The link takes the user to a screen with an easy-to-use description of the person along with a few quick tips for effective communication.
Imagine if everyone on your team had this link!
