Personality differences often lead to miscommunication and conflict, which affect both our personal efficiency and team health. Utilizing the ACHIEVE Work Styles Assessment, participants will learn to better understand personality styles that are different from their own. Greater awareness of personality differences leads to improved personal effectiveness and group productivity. Participants will learn strategies for communicating more effectively based on their own personality strengths and the personality-based preferences of others.
