Interaction Essentials™ Workshop

This one-day workshop is based on the exciting book by Linda Berens, Interaction Essentials: 3 Keys to Effective Relationships in the Workplace and Beyond.

Improve your communications and relationships at work and in your personal life. 

Interaction is essential to getting things done and for satisfying our very human need for relatedness. Interaction can be a source of some of our most rewarding moments as well as some of the most painful. Unlike overly simplistic or overly complicated communication and relationship tools, the Interaction Essentials workshop gives you a proven 3-step process using the Berens Interaction Styles model, an easy to understand framework of individual differences that you can apply immediately to every aspect of your life.

You will gain the following benefits for yourself and those you lead, coach, or facilitate:

  • Help others bring all of who they are to the workplace or wherever you lead.
  • Discover more about your unique self—ways you naturally interact, try to influence others, make decisions, handle conflict, and get stressed.
  • Uncover blind spots and pitfalls so you can be more effective in your life.
  • Experience more effective conversations at work and in your personal life so you can be heard and respected as a powerful communicator.
  • Learn how to more effectively get through to some “problem” people in your life.
