Presented By: Alice Dendinger, SPHR  - Austin Alliance


Explore the subtle nuances of how communication is different in a face-to-face versus virtual world.  We will reference a tool called Everything DiSC® Workplace which is the world's most highly validated personalized profile* in the marketplace. The profile helps spark meaningful conversation between employees regarding what helps and hinders communication and interpersonal relationships. It helps us understand ourselves better and build better relationships with others. 

Communication does not have to be a problem if you can better understand and describe your preferred communication style, what drives you and how others can work with you to bring out your best.  It is the experience of the Austin Alliance Group’s seasoned DiSC® Behavioral Strategists that DiSC® profiles can provide a foundation for great communication regardless of the environment.

Participants Learning Objectives:

    • Discuss DiSC® at a High Level - how each dimension communicates in a face-to-face world 
    • Identify Top 10 Communication Skills needed to master to connect with your teams
    • Discover what helps / hinders effective communication in a virtual or hybrid work context 
    • Examine how adapting to similar or other styles in a virtual or hybrid context goes beyond what we knew when we were facing each other  

    *Attend this session to receive a free Everything DiSC® Workplace Personalized Profile. The Austin Alliance Group is an award-winning partner with Wiley DiSC® - the most highly validated and reliable DiSC® profile in the world market.
