The Secret Language of Personality Types On-Site Training

This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.

How to identify - and speak the language of - the various personality types

Course Description/Agenda

After this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify the 4 basic personality types and shift your language to meet the specific needs of each type
  • Understand the 9 different compulsions that drive our negative behavior, and how to speak to that compulsion to break through communication barriers
  • Discover your own compulsions that sabotage your success & personal growth
  • Recognize the different learning styles, and incorporate those styles in your teaching, leadership, and training style so others can grasp concepts more quickly, profoundly, and easily
  • Be more persuasive, and connect more quickly with others by understanding and using tools such as neuro-linguistic-programming (N-L-P)
  • Resolve conflict more quickly by understanding other people’s “deal breakers”
  • Eliminate the danger phrases that push other people’s buttons and create problems, and replace them with power phrases

BONUS: Bring this workshop to your organization, and we’ll conduct a personality assessment for each participant--FREE.

Do you know how to talk to these people?

  • The Perfectionist
    “I want people to admire me”
  • The Saint
    “I want people to need me”
  • The Winner
    “I want people to envy me”
  • The Mystery
    “I want people to wonder about me”
  • The Thinker
    “I want people to ask me”
  • The Team Player
    “I want people to Band with me”
  • The Life of the Party
    “I want people to like me”
  • The Boss
    “I want people to respect me”
  • The Diplomat
    “I want people to chill out”

Do you find yourself having the same arguments with your family, co-workers, and friends, over and over again?

  • Do you find the same relationship and communication problems arising in your life over and over?
  • Do you accidentally push people’s buttons, and you don’t know why?
  • Do you wonder, “What’s going on in there?” while you’re talking with your friends, family, or co-workers?
  • Do you struggle motivating people at home or at work?

You may have learned much about yourself from self-help books and tapes. Perhaps you know if you’re an introvert or an extrovert—whether you are a sensate or an intuitive, a thinker or a feeler, a judger or perceiver. Having learned all that, you may very well be saying: “But so what?”

Seriously, so what??

Working with different personality types can be challenging, especially if you have not invested in learning what the different types are, and how they think. Most people have learned to practice the Golden Rule, which is “Treat others as you would like to be treated.” That’s their problem. We shouldn’t be treating others they way WE want to be treated-we should be treating others the way THEY want to be treated. In other words-know the strengths and weaknesses of those around us, and how to speak to the different types in their language. In this seminar you will learn how to form and lead a team more effectively, and also how to be a better team member. You will learn how to work more effectively with those around you; your relationships will be more fruitful and meaningful; you will watch your productivity increase thanks to fewer personality conflicts; and you will be more skilled at discerning who to go to for what.

After attending this seminar, you will no longer be saying,
“I just don’t understand how they think.”

Who should attend?

Supervisors and managers at every level, Team leaders and team members, Business owners and directors, Anyone who works with a variety of personality types
