Poor Communication is a leading cause of workplace conflict

Understanding differences in communication styles can improve productivity,  employee morale and leadership effectiveness

Differing styles often leads to misunderstanding. Within a team you may have people who communicate in a systematic and logical fashion, where others are more sympathetic and supportive. These kinds of differences can impact interpretation of messages and lead to conflict and soured relationships – even though both parties are working to achieve a shared goal. 

Personality, measured by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, is an excellent  framework to describe individual preferences related to workstyle and communication. Teams that are self-aware, understand member strengths and blind spots leading to more effective communication, reduced conflict, and higher performance.
