Social cues can be hard to teach. Because people are different and workplace practices vary, social cues and behavioral norms might also vary depending on where and how you work. In this program, we take you through some more general examples of behavioral missteps and how to pick up on the social cues surrounding those. The goal of this course is to help viewers better read social cues to become better communicators.
Understanding DISC Styles
In this program from our DISC series, we discuss the four different DISC styles more in-depth. We’ll take a look at how each type handles stress or conflict, how they’re motivated, what they fear, and what their strengths are. We’ll also go over some DISC styles of famous TV and movie characters to give you some perspective.
Straight Talk on Bad Language
Two out of three people say they prefer NOT to hear cursing in public conversations, and they’re offended when they do hear it. That’s a large part of the population that’s offended when they hear people cursing. Meanwhile, a recent study revealed that 81% of employers believe that swearing at work is unprofessional. In this program, we’ll go over several other surprising statistics, while we discuss the use of bad language in the workplace, and when it is, or is not appropriate.
Defining Nonverbal Communication
When you see a series about nonverbal communication, you might assume it’s going to be about body language, but nonverbal communication is much more than that. Our understanding of it has evolved in recent years due to extensive research, which we’ll discuss in this series. The goal of this course is to help you better understand what people are saying through nonverbal communication, to align your own nonverbals with your intentions, and to use nonverbal communication to leverage success in the workplace. In this program, we define nonverbal communication and all that encompasses it. It’s not just body language and facial expressions, but also cultural and environmental conditions that you may not have previously considered.
