How Structure Impacts Business Communication
CO-CREATE | CO-DEVELOP | DELIVER
Byron: Hi, my name is Byron Hebert and this is another Tool Time Update brought to you by your friends at PKF Texas and the Entrepreneur’s Playbook. We’ve been talking about Birkman and how we use it to form teams in our organization, hiring and conflict management and coaching of people. And so we’re going through the components – there’s 11 of them – and today we’re going to talk about Structure. Structure is if you have a high Structure score – if you remember we scale this on a scale of 1 to 100 – if you have a high Structure score that means you’re going to be a very organized – you’re going to be able to organize workplace, you’re going to want to organize environment, a very structured agenda and you’re going to approach your work in a very structured way.
A lower Structure score is going to mean that you’re going to want – you can be a little bit more flexible. You’re not going to need – you have a broad agenda; you don’t have to have such a tight agenda around what you do and you can be a little bit more flexible in the workplace. There’s no good or bad here, it’s just the way people are hardwired if you will, and so we use this to make sure that we have the right people in the right job in our organization. So when we’re talking about structure that means how we approach our work, whether it’s an organized fashion or in a more relaxed fashion. Again, my name’s Byron Hebert and this has been a Tool Time Update brought to you by your friends at PKF Texas and the Entrepreneur’s Playbook.
