The Art of Workplace Influence
Successful HR leaders embrace effective communication as a competitive edge. However, little is possible without the ability and willingness to connect with individuals and teams in meaningful, productive ways. We risk "cookie cutter" approaches to vital relationships, and we're left wondering what went wrong.
In this inspiring session, Erich Kurschat (founder of Harmony Insights LLC and HRHotSeat) will introduce a valuable framework for navigating the four basic personality styles that we encounter on a daily basis. You will leave with the tools to assess the needs and motivations of diverse stakeholders, as well as specific strategies for engaging the people who matter most to your business...including in a virtual environment!

Workplace Application
Attendees will learn how to lead, manage, and communicate with greater influence in the workplace by embracing diversity of communication and personality style.
Learning Objectives
1. Attendees will learn basic concepts from the DiSC model of behavior;
2. Attendees will examine default strengths and potential limitations;
3. Attendees will discover diverse communication styles and preferred environments;
4. Attendees will identify specific strategies to solicit buy-in, reinforce connection, and move others to act;
5. Attendees will walk away with the tools to assess the needs and motivations of key stakeholders, including in a remote environment
