Empowering your employees to understand their own personal strengths and weaknesses helps boost teamwork, morale, and company culture.

How Do You Come Across to Others?

Research shows that assertive behavior improves individual and organizational performance. The ability to influence others is critical to anyone in a leadership or sales role, and enormously useful to just about everybody else. But people aren’t necessarily born assertive – it’s largely an acquired skill. And that’s good news for trainers.

Why Are They Acting That Way? Training on Personal Styles

Self-understanding is a necessary precondition for learning and growth. If managers or employees lack insight into their own personality style, neither formal training nor on-the-job experience will enable them to reach their full potential. Blind to their own behavioral patterns, they will continue to trip over themselves in the same old ways.

Communication Style 101

Effective communication is the very lifeblood of any organization. If communication is not clear and persuasive between managers and employees, and employees and customers, then other vital goals are forever out of reach.

Personality in the Workplace

Everybody is affected by everyone else’s personalities. That’s why it’s so important that everyone understands how they show up, what they bring to the table, and how their personalities affect others. So, what does that look like?

Personalities really come out when a conflict arises. Everyone seems to fall back on their default characteristics and natural instincts. And in the context of stress and tension, those qualities may not always the best. Conflict can bring out competitiveness, passive aggressiveness, anger, or withdrawal. When employees know these basic personality facts about themselves, they’re more likely to notice them in sticky situations and can act to combat them for a more empathetic and productive conversation.

Everyone has a different strength while working as part of a team. Some are natural leaders, some are creative brainstormers, and some are organized and keep everyone on task—and there are many more roles to play. Understanding personality style is key for effective teamwork. When employees understand their unique strengths and roles on a team, they’re more apt to contribute to it.

Understanding personal strengths and weaknesses can help employees understand how to work more effectively as well. This level of personal understanding can empower a deeper relationship between managers and employees, informing effective conversations about how to grow.

Self-awareness isn’t just helpful for employees reporting up into managers. It’s even more important for managers and leaders to understand themselves and their team. Part of personal development is understanding what kind of leader you are. How do you navigate stress? How do you make decisions? How do you delegate work? What about your employees? Knowing these basic personality traits gives leaders a framework by which to understand how they lead, how they can improve their leadership, and how they can empower employees to do the same.

Using Personality Assessments in Training

Self-understanding is a necessary precondition for learning and growth. If managers or employees lack insight into their own personality traits, neither formal training nor on-the-job experience will enable them to reach their full potential. Blind to their own behavioral patterns, they will continue to trip over themselves in the same old ways.

Working Effectively With Other Teams

Using a team approach to achieving organizational results is a methodology that has proven to be much more effective than the old-school approach of top-down, authoritarian management. However, there are downsides to the team approach that can be problematic in this increasingly fast-moving business environment. The greatest of these downsides include restricted communication, competition and even conflict between teams that actually hurts the overall organization.
