Managing and Leading
Taking on a managerial role or leading a team is a hefty responsibility that requires a great deal of interpersonal and behavioral style awareness as well as support from the people we are leading. To optimize that support, having an understanding of what someone’s behaviors are telling us is crucial. This allows us to assess how they prefer to be treated. Similarly, a heightened awareness of ourselves is important – especially when leading.
Managers who understand how to connect with individuals in ways that resonate with their values, communication styles and needs are better equipped to keep their teams engaged and inspired to achieve. Here are just some examples of how Style supports managers in the workplace:
Multiple research studies have documented the impact that SOCIAL STYLE and Versatility have on managerial performance including:
- Managers with high SOCIAL STYLE skills are 27% better at managing conflict
- 81% of managers trained in SOCIAL STYLE say it makes them more effective as a manager and coach
- A study at a multinational defense contract found that managers with high Versatility are much more likely to support diversity and inclusiveness efforts
- A study at an international publishing company found managers with high Versatility were 27% better at leading their teams
Incorporating SOCIAL STYLE training in managerial development programs is a smart investment in building your leaders of today and tomorrow..
