Course Description

In work or in your personal life, do you find you connect with some people straightaway and others you struggle to engage in conversation? Have you ever wondered why this is?

To manage others, it is important to have an awareness of our own behavioural/personality preferences, and how they affect the way we interact with others.

Behavioural and personality tests are used by companies all over the world in order to create a productive working environment for their employees. There are numerous theories and many are based on the work of the famous psychologist Carl Jung, further developed by Myers Briggs and others. Ultimately the thinking behind these theories goes back to 500BC and the Greek philosophers.

This one day workshop is based on these theories and around 4 Colour Preferences. It has been modified so that it is easy to understand and apply at work.

Identifying and understanding the colour of your predominant preference will help you manage relationships in your workplace and at home. As you become more experienced in using these principles you can adapt them to understand other people’s personalities better, which will help you to deal with them, whether they are your team member, manager, customer, spouse/partner or child.

These preferences are not designed to change a person. It is a tool for building productive relationships and working better with the differences.
