Interaction Essentials™ Workshop

An integral Typeworks workshop based on the exciting new 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 . . .

  • 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
