Straight Talk®: Using Strategic Communication for High Impact Results

Ron Sober

The key to workplace success is being a strong communicator. Being a strong communicator means knowing yourself and how to expertly navigate conversations that cut through assumptions, clarify needs and expectations, and maximize group productivity. Using the Straight Talk® communication style inventory, this session will explore good communication concepts and practices based on the work by communications expert and organizational leadership consultant Eric Douglas.

You will learn to:
- Recognize the four Straight Talk® styles and the strengths, weaknesses, similarities, and differences among them
- Identify your unique Straight Talk® profile and determine how it contributes to your success
- Determine practical ways to effectively adapt your style to improve your communication with others
- Discuss a range of strategies to proactively apply the strengths of your style and others back to your work

You will benefit by:
- Developing positive working relationships and higher levels of trust with your work colleagues
- Increasing your self-awareness, personal productivity, and efficiency by using more effective communication with others
- Decreasing or even eliminating conflicts that naturally occur from individual differences in style
- Increasing your ability to work in groups to solve problems and find successful solutions
