Each individual’s personality type is innate and unique. As awareness of this increases, it can bring about changes (sometimes radical) as behaviours correspond more and more to who the person really is. This is a big subject, but participation in the Foundation Workshop goes a long way to understanding the underlying issues behind this question, especially as far as core personality is concerned.
We Are Usually Asked About
What influences someone's perception of themselves?
This depends on the nature of the influence and how powerful it is. Some influences lead a person to think that they are different from who they really are; these can include who others think that person should be and the pressure that is applied to conform to that. An accurate perception is developed when influences bring out the core personality and encourage this to grow and flourish.
There is a difference between learned and preferred behaviour. The former is what we do, while the latter represents who we really are. This aspect is covered in the Foundation Workshop.
What if I have difficulty identifying my personality type?
That’s no problem. The workshops are not a test which you pass or fail, but offer an interactive process of self-discovery. There is no right or wrong way to do the activities and each learns at their own pace. The usual experience is that the longer a workshop goes on, the more the participants can identify with specific personality traits.
It is important to understand that we are a combination of all four personality types, but in different quantities. Most have a dominant style which is complemented by the traits they have from the other three. Each person has their own unique personality type line-up.
How many people can participate in a workshop?
It can depend on the particular workshop, but as a general guideline, there should be a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 20 people. The ideal number would be from 12 to 16. If there are too many, individual participation can be stifled and some individuals may not gain as much benefit as they could from the workshop. If there are too few, the learning experience can be limited by a lack of variety or similarity in personality types, both of which are necessary to consolidate the learning.
The Team Development Workshop can be tailored for varying numbers of participants, depending on the specific need of the group. Career orientation works best on a one-to-one basis or with a small group.
Do I need to bring anything to any of the workshops?
The only things you really need to bring are a positive attitude, a desire to learn and a willingness to actively participate! You will get the most out of the experience if you bring these.
All materials are provided and you will be able take these away with you at the end of the workshop.
Do I get a certificate of participation?
Yes, each participant at any of the workshops receives a certificate of participation at the end of the workshop.
Can workshops be organised as a package?
Yes, they can. Specific programmes suited to the needs and timescales of the client can be discussed and established, with corresponding discounts applied.
