Understanding and Appreciating Different Personalities at Work

Working efficiently with different personality types is beneficial to sustain a strong team and healthy work environment.

Personality Dimensions® is a human relations tool which is presented in an informative, interactive, fun and self-discovery format. It is based on leading-edge research, which helps to explain what motivates behaviour in people with different personalities or temperaments. Participants will:

  • Learn about the 4 different personality types.
  • Discover their own personality type and uncover their unique blend of strengths and weaknesses.
  • Learn to appreciate others' differences.

Where effective training and development is essential for meeting strategic objectives – an understanding of personality theory is a very effective tool in facilitating team creation and building; improving communication and interpersonal relationships; enhancing customer service and satisfaction; and in providing innovative solutions to problems by tapping into the creative energy of every temperament preference.
