Social Styles Versatility Reinforcement Workshop


Over 85% of Training Disappears after 60 Days

You have made an investment in your training not only in dollars but time as well. Research has shown that over 85% of training is lost after 60 days unless you follow-up and reinforce the initial training, Coaching also helps, but this Versatility workshop takes participants to the next level. After attending an initial workshop, many participants face the challenge of increasing their Versatility to become more effective. Our research shows that about half of the participants have "W" or "X" Versatility. That means they are more concerned about reducing their own tension instead of others. Research also shows that those with high Versatility ("Y" and "Z") are more productive, have better relationships, and bottom line are more successful. For example, those salespeople with high Versatility consistently outsell others.

Versatility is the most important measure of Tracom's Social Style. It separates Tracom's Social Style from all the other programs on the market. The Social Style Versatility Reinforcement Workshop takes the participant to the next level of Versatility. The workshop is based on the content from an expanded Versatility Report. It creates an opportunity to quickly enhance the participant's Versatility and interpersonal skills, and enhance their versatility score.   Many of our clients use this program as a follow-up to Producing Results with Others.

The Social Styles Versatility Reinforcement Workshop offers a simple way to increase interpersonal effectiveness for those who have participated in a multi-rater SOCIAL STYLE training course within the last three years. This includes participants trained with TRACOM, Wilson Learning, or other social style programs. The workshop and/or assessment is ideally conducted 2 to 4 months after initial multi-rater SOCIAL STYLES training.

social-style-versatilityThe process uses an enhanced multi-rater Social Style Versatility assessment. The Managerial Multi-Rater 360 Social Style & Enhanced Versatility profile provides the most comprehensive picture of a manager's SOCIAL STYLE and Versatility. It uses an online, multi-rater questionnaire and provides the most detailed report available including information on Versatility - the measure of support that others give an individual. The report includes an in-depth information on the four components of versatility - Image, Presentation, Competence, and Feedback. The report is scored against managerial norms.

The Social Style VersatilityWorkshop can be customized to fit a half to one day format.

How It Works

Before the workshop, the participant completes a short online survey that takes 5 to 10 minutes to complete. They identify up to ten other individuals (raters), to assess their Versatility. Once the raters and participant complete the questionnaire, a custom 40-page Enhanced Versatility Report is generated and sent electronically to the participant, or distributed at a workshop.
