Discovering Your Work Style:
Strategies for Maximizing Your Relationships and Your Time
Working with people has always been a front-line supervisor’s key responsibility. Recent trends indicate this job has grown harder, as supervisors are encouraged to increase productivity through influence rather than authority. How can this course help? By gaining a greater understanding of yourself and those you work with through the PeopleStyles Behavioral Inventory. Within the framework of your style, learn practical strategies for relating effectively with others, and for handling your time management challenges.
