Communication Style Inventory:

CSI

A prerequisite of becoming a successful Leader is knowing how to be heard, and the key to this is to speak the language your listeners understand.  The Communication Style Inventory shows you what type of communicator you are (Steady / Inspirer / Conscientious / Dominant) and what it entails. The moment you understand how you communicate, then you will be able to listen to verbal cues and adjust communication styles thus becoming more effective in communication style flexibility.
