DISC is a simple and effective solution. There is a lot of coaching around how to approach the "types". I have clients who have the colors on name badges, on doors, on email signatures.
Oversimplifying: For instance an S will want you to chat a little before diving in to work. a D will want to cut straight to the chase. DISC is simple.
And / Yet Kolbe helps a ton here too. It helps us understand how people deal with / attack problems. It can help us be patient. When we know we have a 7355 (Me) you must give me time to understand the problem to learn about it before I trigger my 5 Quick Start or 5 Implementer (where I will want to model the problem, draw it on a whiteboard) etc. etc.
DISC and Kolbe working in combination can get you pretty close to the 5 Love Languages.
I know everyone will be shocked at this: I'm an 11 Words of Affection - 8 Physical touch ... - I know creepy. Wife is 1 Physical touch. =;- )
It is OK to laugh.
