Take your audience on an exciting learning adventure with Bridging the Communication Divide! Part of the HRDQ Style Series™ product suite, this hands-on experiential game explores the impact personality style has on everyday interactions and then offers a simple communication style model individuals can use to make immediate improvements to their communication skills.

Have you ever wondered why it's so easy to work with some people yet so painful to collaborate with others? Well, it has just about everything to do with personality style. It's the main reason some people can establish immediate rapport, and it can be the root cause conflict too. But now there's a fun and effective solution that will clear the road to effective communication.

Your blueprint for effective communication.

Not your ordinary communication training program, Bridging the Communication Divide is an adventurous role-play game that lifts participants out of their everyday, four-walled environment and immerses them in a powerful combination of learning and practice. There isn't a better tool for exploring—or experiencing—personality style and how it shapes the way people interact. From identifying ‘Who am I?' and learning the ins-and-outs of personality to discovering how to flex your style and building an action plan for improvement, Bridging the Communication Divide is full-distance learning. As a trainer, you will witness an amazing transformation happen between Parts One and Two!
