Communication Skills for STEM Professionals
High-level conversation and communication skills are necessary in all industries. In STEM and other technical fields, however, there are added challenges. In this course, participants learn to:
- Define and apply emotional intelligence
- Build empathy and rapport across differences
- Build trust through an active listening process
- Create greater understanding through strategic questioning
The course then addresses the challenges of translating technical information to a non-technical audience. Finally, the course can be tailored to include the TriMetrix DNA assessment, and techniques in persuasion, motivation, negotiation, and/or conflict management.
Communication Skills for STEM Professionals: Gamified
This improv-based workshop “gamifies” the STEM conversation skills curriculum. Participants play group games that:

Building a Dynamic STEM Team
Differences of all kinds can lead to misunderstandings and dysfunctions on teams. In this course, participants explore differences via the TriMetrix DNA assessment. They learn about:
- The DISC model of work styles
- Their own preferred work styles
- The value of each style
- The Driving Forces model of motivation
- Their own inner drivers, or motivations
- The value of other drivers
- How to work with people whose work styles and/or drivers are different from their own
By learning more about work styles and motivations, participants come to appreciate the differences that make their teams strong. Teams can then operate more harmoniously and effectively.
