A personal view of the Tracom Social Style and Versatility Profile

“As a consultant who specialises in using a number of tools including Social Style and Versatility, I find it extremely useful in helping to change behaviour and improve productivity and effectiveness, whether this be in training sessions or for feedback on a one to one basis. By raising peoples self awareness of their own Behavioural Style and by working with them to realise the impact they can have on others, with different Social Styles, the results can be dramatic and immediate” Graham Price

In principle Derek is able to offer a specialist external HR resource to help you when needed. If you have already got an HR department he can be additional resource. If you haven’t then he could be your outsourced support for just a few hours each month if that is preferred.
