Wouldn’t it be great to quickly determine the broad personality traits of anybody you meet? After this session, you will be able to apply a quick, simple and repeatable technique to evaluate anyone’s interaction style so that you can tailor your approach to their needs, create greater harmony, and get better results. As a bonus, you will also determine your own interaction style. You’ll be surprised how a couple of factors can predict so much about how you interact.
This is a fun, interactive session, so come prepared to participate!
Trent will also chat a bit about his own journey from being terrified of public speaking to it now being a pillar of his profession.
