Everyone has their own understanding of what they consider to be right and wrong, good or bad behaviour in the workplace. An individual’s leadership style will depend on his/her own understanding of what they believe quality leadership to be, usually developed over time through observations, education and experiences, however, what we know we should do and what we actually do can sometimes be totally different.

Do you find yourself dealing with people differently depending on how they typically behave? Have you ever said the same thing to two people and got different reactions? With person A you can be clear, direct, and straight forward and they respond well but with person B, you need a softer, more personal approach to get the same results. Most leaders figure these things out through trial and error, but what if I told you there is an easier way?

By looking at the mechanics behind communication this interactive discussion focuses on understanding how behaviour impacts communication and leadership in our day to day dealings with people both personally and professionally.
