Are you an employee? A manager? Do you have a spouse? Children? Friends? Acquaintances? Do you volunteer in an organization? Are you on committees? Do you ever deal with people in any context at all? Of course you do! This 2-part workshop series is an invaluable tool in understanding your own personality style, as well as understanding those with whom you interact.
We’ll look at common characteristics of the four primary styles – the good, the bad, and the ugly! You’ll find out how we are all so different… and yet so alike. Why do they do the things they do, and why do you react the way you do? Why do you struggle to communicate effectively with some people? Why don’t they have the same goals you do? Why don’t they see things the way you do (after all, you’re right, right?!?)?
Prior to the first session, you’ll have an opportunity to assess your own personality style, which will prepare you to glean the most from the two 90-minute sessions explaining the ins and outs of personalities.
In the first session, Personalities at Work, you’ll examine your own personality style as well as the strengths and struggles of the other three basic styles. As you learn about yourself, you’ll undoubtedly experience an “aha!” moment regarding someone else (or several “someone elses”!). We’ll also delve a little deeper to find out what makes them – and us – tick!
In the second session, How in the World Can I Communicate with Them?, we’ll continue to deepen our understanding and discover specific ways to deal effectively with each style.
If you’ve ever asked yourself “why did they DO that?” attend this informative and fun 2-part workshop series – and find out!
You only need to register once for both parts of this webinar. If you can’t attend both parts live, don’t worry because we’ll send you the link to watch the recordings.
