Results through Relationship Intelligence with Michael Brown
June 15, 2023
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Learn How to Build Agile Teams Where Relationships Thrive
Doesn’t it seem like some managers and teams make “it” happen, no matter what “it” is? Even in uncertainty or times of crisis, they find a way to turn opposition into opportunity. They transform the stumbling blocks of conflict and misunderstanding into stepping stones for success.
For these high-achievers, building collaborative relationships is priority one. Whether in-person or dispersed, they understand that members of their teams can go further together than they can alone. The good news is that you, too, can leverage the power of relationships and drive results.
What You Will Learn During the Webinar:
■ How to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of individual motives and strengths■ The ability to tailor communication-based on individual motives and preferences■ Understand diverse personalities and how that can trigger conflict■ Discover your strengths and deploy them at the right time for the right reason for greater effectiveness
Before the Webinar: The SDI 2.0
*A link to a complimentary SDI 2.0 assessment will be sent to you upon registration.
Core Strengths® is powered by the Strength Deployment Inventory 2.0 (SDI 2.0). This award-winning, scientifically validated assessment provides four views of a person. It reveals why they do what they do, and how they relate to others. Using Relationship Intelligence (RQ), the SDI 2.0 provides a common language for understanding what’s important to the people on your teams, and how they can work together more effectively. It provides tools for choosing the right strengths to make the right decisions, even in high-stakes situations.

“Using the Extended DISC Model to Build and Manage Great Teams”
WEDNESDAY, JULY 26, 2023
6:00 - 7:15pm
Dr. Travis Kahle
Experienced Higher Education Professional in Innovation, Leadership, and Career Services
Building an effective team is both art and science, but it shouldn’t be a mystery. Using the Extended DISC model as a guide, Dr. Travis Kahle will explore how colleagues with different personality and behavioral tendencies can complement each other and thrive. Everyone has a unique personality, but years of research has shown that people generally fall into one of four primary categories- dominance (D -style), influence (I-style), steadiness (S-style), or correctness (C-style). While conflict at work is inevitable, there is a difference between healthy and destructive conflict. By acknowledging and understanding the four major personality styles, destructive conflict can often be managed or avoided altogether.
In this workshop, participants will learn how to identify the DISC styles and how to communicate effectively with individuals in each category. Participants will also discuss how to leverage diverse personalities to build effective and productive teams.
