Staff Day Learning

Personality tests combined with my Effective Communication Skills webinar can make for a great staff development day!

Are you looking for a great staff development day learning tool for your library or non-profit staff members?

Here is an excellent idea for your next staff development day: arrange for each employee to take a personality test such as 16personalities or the HEXACO Personality Inventory-Revised and then host my Effective Communications Skills webinar. This is a great opportunity for your library or non-profit employees to not only learn about their own personality types, but also learn about how their colleagues prefer to interact in meetings, training sessions, and even one-on-one.

My Effective Communication Skills webinar can be 60 minutes or 90 minutes. By learning some simple skills and techniques, communicating with colleagues in person or online doesn’t have to be scary or intimidating. In this session, attendees will take a close look at various personality types and communication styles. The more you know about personality types and communication styles can make almost any interaction a pleasant one. Online resources will be provided and there will be opportunities for Q&A and discussion. You can also record the session for your staff to review later.

Communications

How well do your library staff members communicate?

Part of the key to effective library communication skills is understanding how the receiver receives the information and how the deliverer delivers the information. How well do you know other library staff members’ personality types and how they prefer to receive information? Have you considered how you sound when delivering information or providing directions, reference information, or just having a casual conversation?

According to 16personalities.com, you can “learn what really drives, inspires, and worries different personality types, helping you build more meaningful relationships.” While there are many personality types, there are 16 main types that we discuss during my Communication Skills for Library Staff online training session. This workshop can be 60 minutes long or 90 minutes for more interactive exercises.

By learning some simple skills and techniques, networking with colleagues in person or online doesn’t have to be scary or intimidating. In this session, attendees will take a close look at various personality types and communication styles.
