Learn the four types of communication priorities and preferences people choose and how to effectively communicate with them all. This interactive presentation will show you:
  What your natural communication preference is
  How your style differs from o
thers and how to recognize those differences
  How to effectively communicate with differing styles to build lasting relationships and
