**Attitudes in the Workplace**

Your attitude is your point of view, your frame of mind. It determines your choices, your communication approach, and your responses to people and situations. Personal power in the workplace comes from choosing a positive attitude that fosters enjoyment and competence and enables you to choose how you respond to others. Positive workers are optimistic, resilient, enthusiastic and confident. Positive workers look for ways to help internal and external customers by finding opportunities to pay it forward. Learn the communication skills that demonstrate your positive workplace attitude.

**Communication Based on Myers-Briggs Type Indicator or DiSC**

Effective communication is vital for successful workplace collaboration. People exhibit communication preferences based on their MBTI or DiSC type. Knowing communication preferences based on type and exhibiting assertive/responsive communication skills can enhance one's potential for successful communication.

**Conflict Resolution Based on MBTI or DiSC**

Conflict is normal and useful within relationships and organizations if managed well. When managed well, conflict encourages creativity and innovation, solves problems and fosters relationship growth. When not managed well, conflict can be destructive to both organizations and relationships. Understanding our MBTI or DiSC type can influence how we approach and manage type.
