Have you ever wondered why it is so hard to work with some people and so easy to work with others? Each of us have a preferred style or approach when it comes to problem solving, relationships, change and policy and procedure. In this session, you’ll better understand your individual priorities, motivators and stressors and how to “shift” your approach to meet others where they are.
