Topic: Leveraging FourSight Preferences to Gain Insight Into Interpersonal Communications

How many times have you left a meeting convinced that you were not speaking the same language as the other people in the room, even if you were all native English-speakers? And we have all felt the pain of trying to solve a problem with someone who just doesn't get why we approach challenges and solutions in the way that we do or who approach them in ways that seem totally alien to us.

The FourSight model was created to help uncover individual preferences for approaches to problem solving. By learning about this model and the four thinking styles within it, you can start to understand how to communicate more effectively with other members of your team. Use the submission form below to sign up or contact info@new-directions-inc.com for call-in and login details.

Topic: Listening to Tell the Story: Using Qual AND Quant to Explain Research Results. Once upon a time, some researchers wanted to cut through the corporate clutter and make sure their findings truly helped create change. They worked hard to collect the right data, and then needed to figure out how to make it stand out – so they told stories!

Different kinds of data lend themselves to different kinds of stories. Whether you have just completed a huge quant study or want to summarize a qualitative exercise, telling a compelling story will help get your message across. And knowing the story you want to tell can help you set up your research most effectively.

Topic: Using Qual AND Quant to Make Better Decisions. For marketing research to have a consistent positive impact on a company’s ROI, it must be used to reduce the company’s decision risk. What information will do this? That depends on the unknowns. Answers to simple questions can often be obtained easily and cost-effectively via surveys. Complex questions usually demand qualitative investigations. But the best research often combines both of these approaches to come up with the most useful solution.
