Are there people in your office (or your life) that drive you crazy because they insist on doing things so differently than you do? Dealing with these differences can be tricky – treating others the way you’d like to be treated is a surefire recipe for frustration when one person’s preferences are another person’s irritations.
But what if there was a way to better understand people’s differing styles – and to leverage them so that instead of frustration, there was appreciation, collaboration and synergy? This presentation will help you recognize your own unique style as well as that of others and provide concrete tips for working and communicating with others in ways that will allow you to connect, build trust and get more done together than you could separately. You’ll learn:
- A model for predicting your own and others’ behavioral styles.
- Tips for working effectively with people of each style.
- An overview of the most common conflicts between people with differing styles and tips for effectively preventing and/or resolving conflict and leveraging differences.
||Diane Bolden is passionate about working with leaders to unleash human potential. An executive coach, speaker, author and organization development professional with more than 25 years of experience in leadership development, coaching and consulting, Diane has worked with managers, directors, officers and boards in Fortune 100 and 500 companies and nonprofit organizations to achieve higher levels of performance and success by helping them to bring out the best in themselves and everyone around them. Her first book, The Pinocchio Principle: Becoming a Real Leader – How to Unearth Genius in Yourself and Those You Lead, was published in 2011.
Diane has a Masters in Business Administration from Arizona State University and a bachelor's degree from the University of Arizona. She is a Certified Corporate Coach and a graduate of Corporate Coach University.
Diane is committed to working with leaders who seek to continually improve themselves so they can make a larger impact and contribution to their organizations, their communities and everyone around them. She has helped her clients and their teams get to the heart of their challenges and tackle their most significant issues and opportunities while learning to access and utilize their own internal wisdom, intuition, and natural talent.
Diane has proven expertise in leadership development. She has taught, facilitated and designed numerous programs over the years, and worked with managers, directors and vice presidents/officers and their teams to help them learn and apply strategies for improving their effectiveness. Her experiences led her to recognize that people learn best when they are faced with challenges that require them not only to develop new skills but to effectively apply them. She complements this knowledge with the philosophy that often what is required is not only learning, but unlearning. As Diane works with her clients to align their intentions and actions with desired results, she also helps them identify and eliminate habits, patterns and assumptions that keep them from doing their best work.
Many coaches shy away from advising their clients, leaving them at a loss as to how to best approach organizational and leadership challenges. Diane draws from her experience and knowledge of organizational behavior and leadership development and blends it with a powerful coaching approach that allows people to access their own wisdom and leverage their strengths to rise up to challenges and opportunities.
Diane is a native Phoenician who is happily married and blessed with three beautiful children.
