How To Move Prickly People To Preferred Outcomes

Imagine what it would be like to encourage and equip everyone on your team to embrace change as a positive process. You can lead the way from conflict to cooperation!

PERSONALITY JAZZ: Creating Harmony At Work 


Communication issues? No Problem! Team conflicts? Sure, but not terminal. Difficult people? Probably not difficult, just different!


Simply acknowledging that we have different personalities and ways of working don’t make for better teams.  Your ability to get along, communicate, respect and compliment instead of competing, is the mix needed for healthy relationships — at work and at home. The strength of your team depends on their ability to appreciate and work with those many differences.  

Personality Jazz takes you into the exciting realm of personal styles and reveals the secret of working in rhythm with others. You will discover a new understanding of personalities from the world of Jazz! Personality Jazz explores the core principles and outcomes of:


  • Listening to Each Other

  • Playing Off of Each Other’s Strengths

  • Working Out The Process 

Meeting Planners: Your audience will have a refreshing perspective about the significance of their personal strengths, a new appreciation for the contribution of others, the reasons for interpersonal conflict, and how to get better results through intentional communication.  Steven is an exceptional facilitator and leads the group through a fast-paced personal assessment and group dialogue – culminating in quickly identified action plans that both individuals and groups can implement in their work environment.
