What Do You Say?


Category: Assessments
Code: 8219

12-item self-assessment designed to give you insight into the ways in which you respond to people in your interpersonal communications.

What Do You Say? is a self-assessment that helps identify your communication style. By selecting the responses that indicate how you are most likely to reply in 12 different episodes or situations, you will gain insight into your style of influencing others. Your raw scores on the response styles are then tied to parent, adult, and child patterns of communication and the 'paradigm shift' that is occurring in organisations committed to empowerment and Total Quality Management.
