in the Workplace
The rapid chages in the economy are driving workplaces that demand effective working relationships. Personality Dimensions® creates a framework with which to establish and communicate goals and expectations. Since no one is ever energized by focusing on negative or poor behaviours; Personality Dimensions® workshops highlight the values and strengths each person brings, and reinforces these in a positive framework for everyone. The number one goal of each session is to build the grounds for an atmosphere of mutual understanding and respect; increase communication; and create strong relationships within the work environment and beyond.
Using the philosophy of understanding yourself and others, Personality Dimensions® motivates and inspires team members to boost effectiveness. In the long run, you will save time, energy and money; and build better employee relations, which equals efficiencies on both a personal and corporate level.
By the end of a Personality Dimensions® Introductory Workshop, participants will have a better understanding of themselves, appreciate why others act the way they do, and understand the effect this has on workplace roles and responsibilities.
Building on the successes created in the Introductory Program, Personality Dimensions® offers workshops that address specific challenges or goals for your departments and teams. These custom-tailored workshops can be executed in conjunction with an Introductory Program, or as a follow-up session at a later time.
In life and work, conflict is difficult to avoid, and for many, difficult to work through and/or successfully resolve. By understanding the motivations behind why we respond to conflict the way we do, and how we manage it can minimize the negative effects it has in our lives and in the workplace. A Personality Dimensions® Conflict Management Program offers practical solutions to help recognize and adjust to the diverse ways others will experience, manage, and seek to resolve conflict.

“I have been using the PD tool for over 5 years and being a management development and corporate trainer for over 10 years, I have found this particular assessment tool to be the 'assessment of choice' amongst our facilitation team and, more importantly, our clients. We use the PD assessment for a wide verity of applications including recruitment and retention, leadership training, customer service and sales skills and team building activities. The PD assessments have been one of the most effective tools for our clients who report that the practicality and easy adaptability of the information from PD has increased productivity, improved communications and relationships and increased morale.”
