Very often, people think they’re good communicators, but they realise when they run into trouble that maybe they’re not. It takes time, as we see the reactions of others and get their feedback. Eventually, we become more aware of our effective and ineffective behaviors. But we can speed up the process.
One tool that introduced by the Communication Guru Lisa B. Marshall years ago and still use today with her clients is the DISC Index. You take a 10-minute quiz and get a 22-page report that tells you what your dominant communication style is, and what it is when you’re under stress. Lisa Marshall has set up a special page on her website so Toastmaster readers can do the test for free. It’s helpful for both professional and personal communication. It’s a way to understand what your style is and to use it to your full advantage.
