Tracy Stone: Asking for What You Want - A Perspective Shift!

Learn more about Linda Beren’s Four Interaction Styles®, which tell us the "how" of our behavior. It refers to patterns of interaction that are both highly contextual and yet innate. Knowing our interaction style helps us locate interpersonal conflicts and situational energy drains. Interaction Styles are based on typology, and give us a map for greater flexibility in our interactions with others. 

Participants will take away from this session:

  • New ways to use observable behavior to improve our success in negotiating and
  • Taking the fear out of asking and getting more of what you want
  • Learn the best ways to interact with each Interaction Style and how to flex to work with them
  • Learn how to use Interaction Styles to “back into” or verify an MBTI type

This presentation is geared to ALL Type learners.


Kailin Wang: More Than Personality - Culture as an Overlay or Underwear?

Understanding the convoluted influence of culture is critical in applying personality type in every aspect of coaching, team building, conflict management, personal and leadership development.

Participants will take away from this session:

  • MBTI® studies in different cultures and national samples in different countries
  • Hofstede's culture study in the 1980's
  • Schein's model of organizational culture and its application to an individual's choice of behavior in group sttings
  • Reflection on Kailin's personal experience and stories, her theory on how culture and personality intertwine to influence our behavioral styles
  • Looking at one more lens to understand people's behavior that may not be consistent with our own type preferences
  • Awareness of the influence of culture while interpreting and analyzing people's personality
