Interaction Styles™

Solving interpersonal conflict and developing new communication skills

One of our most popular retreat and team building workshops!

The most successful teams consist of people with diverse skills, who trust one another and work well together. By understanding Interaction Styles, teams can take advantage of multiple perspectives and skills to achieve the team’s objective.

Interaction Styles is a contemporary model based on observable behavior patterns similar to the popular Social Styles models and DiSC® Instrument. Interaction Styles tells us the “how” of our behavior.

It refers to patterns of interaction that are highly contextual and yet innate. Knowing our interaction style helps us locate interpersonal conflicts and situational energy drains. It gives us a map for greater flexibility in our interactions with others.

The Interaction Style lens provides insights into the ways we are naturally inclined to express ourselves. Learners will identify their core and developed styles and identify the gifts and challenges inherent in both.

Each of the four patterns captures the underlying core communication belief, drive, aim, talents and appearance with unique communication needs:

  • Chart-the-Course with an urgent need to anticipate
  • Behind-the-Scenes with an urgent need to integrate
  • Get-Things-Going with an urgent need to involve
  • In-Charge with an urgent need to accomplish
