L to R: Dennis McCuistion, Niki McCuistion, & Tony Alessandra, PhD
Whether it’s to collaborate, innovate, be understood, negotiate, and/or just get along with others, effective communication skills are key. Schools teach the “3 r’s” and give communication short shrift.
According to research we can differentiate various styles of communicating into four quadrants:
- Directors tend to be more forceful and up front and want people to get to the bottom line. They like being in charge.
- Socializers want to be center stage. They excel at conversation- sometimes too much so.
- Relators are about relationships, slow to warm up, and loyal. They like a relaxed pace.
- Thinkers are analytical, precise and like data- neatly presented.
