A Short Course On Communication Styles

Sponsored Content provided by Hoop Morgan - Founder and Chairman, The Forté Institute, LLC

Over the next several articles, we will be taking a detailed dive into the Forté Strengths. The better you know yourself, the higher your situational leadership skills will be and how you adapt and balance with others clearly becomes a measure of success in both your personal and professional life.

Why does it matter? Because the ability to achieve interdependence to accomplish goals in virtually every situation in life matters!

Learning and understanding your own strengths and the motivators and de-motivators of others is the gateway to building relationships of trust. Trust, and maintaining trust, is a full-time job yet can be lost so easily.

In most Forté Communication Style Profiles, the primary communication style strengths will be evident, which, depending on the intensity of that strength, will reflect that individual’s attitude, action and responses as much as 60 percent of the time.

In the Forté Profiles, we look at both the pattern and the intensity of that pattern. Note below the three Forté profiles offered with each report.

On the left is the individual’s Forte Benchmark/Primary profile, which has little variance over one’s lifetime. The center profile - the current adapting profile - is how the individual has been adapting their strengths to accomplish goals over the most recent 30-day period.

Life goes on, and you can think of different individuals or situations in which you tend to adapt differently when communicating with them. On the far right, the perceiver profile shares with you how you are “most likely” coming across to others now and for the next 30-day period.

If there is a two point intensity difference between the current adapting and current perceiver profiles, Forté offers a communication style strategy to utilize over the next 30-day period to close those potential gaps of misunderstanding. The strategies can be updated as often as every 30 days.

In upcoming articles, we will be take a closer look at what these strengths listed in the profile mean in terms of the “who we are” as a starting point on communication styles.
First up in the series: dominance versus non-dominance.

If you would like to get more of an understanding of this, we welcome you to click on this link and complete your own Forté Communications Style surveys.

This will pair you for our next article when we take a look at how the current adapting and current perceiver profiles interrelate with both the primary profile and within themselves. The surveys take less than eight minutes to complete, and you receive your results immediately.
