Interacting With Others Introduction
Both experience and research show us that different individuals structure their work in different ways. They do so both when structuring the activities they do by themselves, and the activities they do in group settings. Each person brings their own personal history and behaviour patterns to this process. Insight into these patterns helps people interact more effectively.
This workbook is intended to be used by an individual. It is complete and self-contained. The 25 questions, the scoring instructions, and the interpretation material are all included. By following the instructions carefully, you will complete the Assessment, score the answers and understand what your results mean.

Examine and improve a leaders' ability to connect with individuals and teams
Helps the Leader understand interaction with people in the workplace. For example, initiating interactions with others—or letting others connect with you? Lively when dealing with people—or calm and reserved? Do they enjoy friendships, networking and dialogue with a large number of people — or longer, more in-depth conversations with a few?
By completing this assessment, the individual gains an objective measurement of what they know and don’t know about how they interact with others in one-on-one and group situations. Just as important, you’ll gain potent ideas for expanding this important skill.
The profile focuses on five behaviour areas:
• Initiating contact and communication with others
• The kind and level of energy you brought to interaction with others
• Expressing ideas, emotions, interests, and feelings to others
• Interacting with others when in group situations
• The number of people that the leader maintains contact and stays involved with.
Quickly discover new information about yourself by reading 25 questions, recording the answers on the score sheet and then interpreting the results. Implement the actions for improving effectiveness at the end of the workbook.
