Effective communication with 1-on-1 coaching

Mastering effective communication is critical in developing both professional relationships as well as personal ones. The starting point in building people skills starts from being effective in our communication skills. 


We combine techniques from Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and leverage on our expertise in Personalities and Behaviours to create a session that is specific to you. ​

This session will start with a DISC personality assessment (to be completed online), followed by a 1-on-1 coaching session. During this session, we are able to provide insight into your communication preferences, and provide guidance on how you can enhance your communication skills by identifying and understanding the personality of others.  We discuss strengths, motivational factors, needs and how unlocking insight into all this provides us with the ability to communicate better with others. 

Specific techniques and strategies, including NLP techniques that are suitable for your unique personality type will be coached as well, so that you are able to continue practicing and enhance your own communication skills after the session.

​This session is for 1.5 hours and runs as a 1-on-1 session.

Effective Communication Workshop - Know yourself, Understand Others

Being able to communicate well is key to almost anything we do. At Discovering Potential, we believe in building communication skills by starting with the most crucial element, which is knowing yourself. With self awareness in place, we can then work on understanding others and thus communicate well with others.

The workshop will be conducted using building blocks from DISC Personality theory, and will focus on using this knowledge to build communication skills.

Our workshops are conducted by a Certified Advanced Behavioural Consultant, who is certified and experienced in the usage of DISC profiling instruments created and provided by The Institute of Motivational Living Inc. Each workshop will involve using various techniques including videos, engaging activities and participation from the attendees. 

The workshop is customisable to your requirements. We usually provide workshops that are inclusive of a DISC Personality Assessment for each participant, and encourage a session of at least 3 hours duration. We welcome working with both large groups and small groups - we are able to customise accordingly. 

The workshop outline will differ depending on your requirements, but as a guide, here are the topics we usually cover:

1. How effective communication requires self awareness 

2. Brief introduction to DISC Personality Theory

3. Why different personalities talk and listen differently

4. How do we adapt and communicate

5. Applying the skill at work and at home

Enhancing Communication between Adult and Child - Online Assessment and Custom Reports

Learning about the inner workings of your child / student's mind is invaluable on many fronts. But just understanding the child is only half the picture, as the adult needs to understand his or herself too. The adult is the key driver to being able to foster a mutual understanding of one another, and with mastery of both your unique personalities, you are able to support one another in augmenting your strengths, and being able to deal with your weaknesses, while stretching out of your comfort zones to develop adaptability and people skills.

 

We will be providing a DISC Personality Assessment for 1 adult and a DISC Personality Asessment for a Child or Youth (depending on the age, suitable for children age 9 and above). Upon completion of both asessments, our Certified Behavioural Consultants will analyse both asessments and provide a detailed report on both individuals as well as a custom report on enhancing communication between both individuals. 

We provide the option of a 1-on-1 Consultation for this program as well.

Why even the best and the brightest need to learn adaptability

in areas such as communication and working with others, it is important to recognise that good communication begins by being able to understand and adapt to the style of others. When speaking to someone who finds details important, adjust your style to provide the necessary information and ensure that it is complete. When speaking to someone else who wants to get straight to the point, provide them with the important points first and be succinct. Adapting communication styles when communicating with different personality types can be an eye-opener. Instead of always going with your own style, try seeing it from the perspective of the receiving end, and adjust accordingly.  

Enhancing communication with your children the DISC way

Being aware of your own personality type can enhance your relationship with others, including your own children. If we enhance our awareness of their personality type vis a vis our own, it becomes easier to adapt and work towards establishing a healthy relationship, without judgement and without being emotional.
