Communication Styles: Mine, Yours, and How to Have an Effective Interaction

Tuesday, September 3, 2019
9:30 am to 11:00 am

Ever wonder why you may have some difficulties communicating with certain people? Are there exchanges with others that frustrate you? It's probably not the person but rather the difference in the styles of communication! This workshop provides information regarding the four different types of Communication Styles. A short quiz will be administered to help participants identify their own personal style of communication. Participants will also learn how to recognize the different styles as well as how to best interact with those whose style differs from their own. Those who attend will acquire practical tools and applications for improving their communication with others.

Speaker: Rhonda Sutton, PhD, is Director of Leadership Programs for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at NC State University. She has over 15 years experience as a higher education administrator, providing professional development, counseling, and support for postdocs, graduate students, faculty and staff. She earned her doctoral degree in Counselor Education from NC State University.

This workshop is part of the Mentoring and Communication Series sponsored by the Office of Postdoctoral Services and The Graduate School. Questions? Contact Molly Starback, Director of Duke Postdoctoral Services, at
