We’ve spent the week focusing on understanding personality styles. In today’s video lesson, I dig deeper into the importance of communicating in the personality style of the person you’re working with.
This is why I created my in-depth video teaching you how to have high levels of quality communication not only in your organization, but in your daily life with your family, your spouse, your friends, etc.
So here’s what I want you to do: I want you to grab the video and watch it with every team member available. After that, spend some time discussing it.
