        Module Description:

        Every time someone speaks in a group setting they are playing a role. These communication roles don’t last long -- from a minimum of a couple of seconds to a maximum of a couple of minutes.

In fact, these verbal patterns determine whether individuals even understand what’s going on.

        Outcomes include:

        • Understanding how to play the role

        • Playing the 10 task roles that insure the job gets done.

        • How to play 6 relationship roles to build bonds between individuals

        • Recognizing and controlling the 10 self-oriented roles that disrupt groups

        • Identifying four personality types that produce dysfunctional behavior.

        This is for managers, supervisor's, and service professionals such as health care professionals, accountants, trainers, and consultants.
