Women in Plastics: Who Does That? Acknowledging & Adjusting

Who Does That? Acknowledging & Adjusting Behaviors for Effective Teamwork
Presented by Shelonda Darling

Why do people have drastically different reactions to situations? Are you the type who “goes with your gut” or do you want all the facts first? The way we respond isn’t by chance, it’s the way we’re wired – and (spoiler alert!) everyone you work with is wired differently. For leaders and staff to work well with one another, it’s imperative they know how they’re wired, how their team members are wired, and how they can adapt their styles to work best together.

That session's goal is to help individuals understand their unique behaviors and the behaviors of others around them. This session gives a unified language to different behavioral styles giving a name to the "who" we work with. For leaders, the goal is to learn how to adapt to different styles within your team so that you can successfully lead any individual.

Attendees will learn to:
  • Identify different behavior types to understand how team members are likely to respond to various situations
  • Learn how to adapt your style to build stronger relationships within your team
  • Improve your communication tactics to reduce unnecessary employee turnover
