Great Communication is Essential and Can be Developed
Effective communication is one of the most important parts of any organization. If communication is not clear then the business is likely to suffer.
In order to bring about meaningful improvements in communication skills, the best way to begin is to build a better understanding of the types of communication: personal communication styles and their effects on other people. Learning one’s individual dominant communication style and the communication behaviors that distinguish it is important for developing better communication.
The four communication styles are:
- Direct – People who take charge, in control, competitive, fast-paced, authoritative, leaders.
- Spirited – People who are enthusiastic, friendly, motivators, high-profile, decision makers.
- Considerate – People who are warm, counseling, cooperative, reliable, caring.
- Systematic – People who are accurate, objective, factual, organized, problem solving.
You can learn more about how a communication style assessment can help you and your team with ‘What’s My Communication Style?’ This program helps employees identify their own preference for one of four communication styles, uncover the characteristics of each style and discover how style affects communication.

HRDQ is also hosting a valuable webinar called “What’s My Communication Style? How to Get Along with (Almost) Anyone” on Aug. 30 at 2 p.m. EDT. This webinar, hosted by trainer and organizational development expert Peggy Greenberg, will further help participants develop their communication skills.
Attendees will be given an introduction to the four primary personality styles. They will understand the principle preferences and behaviors that motivate each style and explore how assertiveness and expressiveness influence effectiveness. They will also be able to understand which combinations of style and behaviors can lead to tension and relationship stress at work.
