How to communicate more effectively with ALL your customers.

Trainer: Debbie Bird

How you relate to others is critical to your business success. Time is precious, by having great relationships with your customers, and others that you rely on, you save time, become more effective, and your business prospers. Self-awareness is key to unlocking untapped potential in your business.

This workshop is for you if you -

·         Would like to improve your selling style

·         Have some tricky customers (but you get on famously with others)

·         Are interested to see yourself as others see you and

   o    understand your personal style

   o    the impact you have on others

Generally these workshops are expensive. This is a rare opportunity to gain these insights with our SBN chair Debbie Bird at an exceptional price – including lunch! The special shortened version of the DiSC® programme for SBN members will also offer free options for an online DiSC® profile, or a more comprehensive report (for which there will be an additional charge). 

Debbie says: “ I am really passionate about personality profiling because it has made a big difference to my career but I have also seen it unlock untapped potential of many clients and colleagues over the last 20 years. I am delighted to have the opportunity to share with SBN members and guests.”

During this fun and interactive workshop you will

·         Understand your own DiSC® style: recognise the priorities, motivators, and stress triggers that shape your business experience

·         Explore other styles:  understand the differences and similarities among the DiSC styles

·         Identify strategies to make more meaningful connections with all your customers.

To get the most from the course when you register for this event you will be sent information about how to complete your free profile report about a week prior to the meeting.
