Shannon Cooper

Difficult v Different - Workplace Behavioural Styles


Available until 4 July 2020

This session will help you understand your communication style, the styles of others and how to adapt more appropriately for better workplace outcomes.


Given the importance of self-awareness to the role of managers and leaders, developing deeper insights into behaviours and the actions of those around you is integral to success. Further, focusing purely on behaviour and ignoring context can inevitably lead to misunderstanding, frustration and conflict.


Institute of Managers and Leaders' presenter Shannon Cooper hosts a compelling, fun and engaging look at what makes us tick behaviourally and aims to stretch and challenge our perceptions of 'difficult' people.


In this webinar, you will:

  • Explore the science of behaviour
  • Understand your own personality style and how you like to work
  • Identify the difference between a difficult person and a difficult behaviour
  • Develop a model for effective conversation
  • Understand the profiles of your colleagues and how to build cohesion between different profiles

Register and watch this on-demand resource at your own convenience before 4th July 2020.
