What is it?

From Mark Horstman, Co-founder:

"You don't realise how much your communication style is a deeply ingrained habit. 75% of the time at work your natural style actually gets in your way. We're going to teach you to see other styles, and change your own. It'll be hard, because you'll be uncomfortable, but you'll be amazed at how well it works. This is the best training I've ever created about the most important thing I ever learned in my professional life."
