Relationships – Follow on from Reading Someone Before You Shake Hands
Please note: this is a follow on workshop that can only be booked for those that have already participated in Reading Someone Before You Shake Hands.
Have you ever wondered why we get on immediately with some people and yet there are others that “rub us up the wrong way” before they even speak? Many of these dynamic are visceral and can be understood from the perspective of different types of people. Some types are innately complimentary and some are almost automatically antagonistic. Recognising the chemistry between types enables us to avoid pointless conflict and make the very best of our interactions. Once a group has a grounding in this potent system of human types we can take the learning further and deeper. When we know our own type and can determine the type of the other person then we can form more fruitful relationships. These relationships can be with existing or potential clients, colleagues or direct reports or our families.
This is a follow on session to “Reading Someone Before You Shake Hands” so there is a brief recap of the six basic types and a reminder of the types of people in the room. This is also an opportunity for attendees who missed the first session to catch up and get on board. We then delve into the hidden attractions and repulsions between types and explore these using historical, current and personal examples. Participants frequently report deep insight into solving tricky situations and finding more effective ways to communicate. We can learn how to treat someone how they wish to be treated – and not how we wish to be treated. There is a strong thread of humour running through the session; nothing is funnier than human nature!
Attendees come away with practical knowledge with immediate applications in areas such as client relationships, conflict resolution and team dynamics. The number of “Ahas” can be extraordinary; this information is fascinating, for some it is life changing. This system can help put into concrete terms insights we have into others but do not have a context for. On a personal level, participants come to greater acceptance of themselves and other people. Once we see the influence one’s type has it becomes easy to let go of expecting others to be different. Professionally the amount of money and energy saved when we find the right type for the job is enormous.
