Side-by-Side Assessments: Line Up for Better Communication!

Alan Andersen

Communication is at the root for success in every relationship — whether at work and at home. Not only that, communication skills need to be continually improved and strengthened.

Have you “arrived” and feel really good at communicating to those you work or live with? Well, it’s been my experience that whenever we get to that point, watch out. Here comes humble pie! We always need to go deeper and learn more and practice those skills continually. (Remember, you have to do something a minimum of seven times before it sticks!)

As leaders, having the tools to improve communication, resolve conflict, and increase trust is essential for us to motivate our teams to greatness. We must know each other’s strengths and compensate for weaknesses if we are to keep our eyes on the desired outcomes.

Side-by-Side Wisdom

Now, the Shandel Group is offering an incredible new tool to help you communicate better. And it’s FREE! (For most of you, anyway).

To test this new tool, I ran the new report on my husband, John, and me. You might know already that we are exact opposites. I can tell you that the comparison charts have helped us communicate so much better! This new knowledge has allowed us to quickly resolve conflict effectively! We have laughed and had a lot of “A-HA” as we read through the report together. (Feel free to look through ours and giggle with us.)

Here are just a few ways the report is being maximized at work:

• Onboarding new employees

• Conflict resolution

• Owner and CEO communication

• Owners and managers

• Executive team member collaboration

• Mentoring programs

• New orientation with manager

• CEO and Vice President of HR

• Succession planning

• Couples coaching

• Selection and development of talent

• Investment in high potential leaders

Great Offer During April

SO HERE’S THE DEAL: If you took the TTI Talent Insight or Trimetrix report after October 1, 2014, we can run this report for you for FREE! No additional cost! Just contact us with your name and the person you want to be compared with on the report.

If you took the assessment before 2014, then see us for a limited offer on retaking it for 50% off during the month of April! If you have never taken the assessments, we will offer them to you at 20% off for you and one key relationship then run the comparison report at no charge.

Remember, everything starts with WHY. Our WHY drives us out of bed in the morning and is a force that keeps us motivated all day long. When our WHY is clear, we are naturally driven to take action on our what and how.

Just as true is when our why does not align with another person’s why over a small or large issue, we will have conflict. This new report helps give clarity into the fact that conflict may be a motivational and not personal.

Invest in your relationships and take them to the next level, if not now, when?
