How to Identify a Communication Style

Identify different communication styles and determine effective ways to respond to the people who communicate using those styles.

Think of two people you work with that use different communication styles. Identify which communication style each person uses (analytical, personal, intuitive, or functional), and explain how you came to this conclusion. For each person’s style, explain how you could use their particular communication style to communicate with them more effectively. Consider how you typically communicate with others at work and identify your communication style. What are the benefits when you can communicate with others in their preferred communication style?
