Solving the Personality Puzzle: 2-Part Webinar (08/30 and 08/31/17) 

IMPORTANT: This is a 2-part webinar that meets both on Wednesday, August 30 AND Thursday, August  31 from 10:00 am - 11:30 am each day. You must attend both sessions.

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


We’ll look at common characteristics of the four primary styles – the good, the bad, and they ugly! You’ll 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?!?)?

Prior to the first session, you’ll have an opportunity to assess your own personality style, which will prepare you to glean the most from the two 90-minute sessions explaining the ins and outs of personalities.   

In the first session, Personalities at Work, you’ll examine your own personality style as well as the strengths and struggles of the other three basic styles. As you learn about yourself, you’ll undoubtedly experience an “aha!” moment regarding someone else (or several “someone elses”!). We’ll also delve a little deeper to find out what makes them – and us – tick!

In the second session, How in the World Can I Communicate With Them?, we’ll continue to deepen our understanding and discover specific ways to deal effectively with each style.

If you’ve ever asked yourself “why did they DO that?” attend this informative and fun 2-part workshop series – and find out!

Attendees will:

  • learn to differentiate between the 4 primary personality styles
  • evaluate their own personality’s strengths and weaknesses
  • discover key techniques to communicate effectively with each style
