Jul: Understanding Personalities in the Workplace (ASCLA)

Each session of this 3-part series is 60 minutes.
Wednesdays, July 2, 9, and 16th @ 2:00 PM Central Time

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 3-part webinar series is an invaluable tool in understanding your own personality style, as well as understanding those with whom you interact.

You'll be introduced to Tightrope walkers, Ringleaders, Attendants and Clowns, and 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?!?)?

In the first session, you’ll find out your own personality style as well as the strengths and weaknesses of each of the four basic styles. As you learn about yourself, you’ll undoubtedly experience an “aha!” moment regarding someone else (or several “someone elses”!)

In the second session, we’ll delve deeper by finding out what makes them – and us – tick!

In the final session of the series, we’ll learn how to stay on TRAC (Tightrope walkers, Ringleaders, Attendants and Clowns) with specific ways to deal with each style.

If you’ve ever asked yourself “why did they DO that?” attend this informative and fun workshop series - and find out!
