Team Building & Individual Assessments
Over the years, I have learned that the more self awareness that you have about who you are, what motivates you, what your likes and dislikes are, what are your strengths and weaknesses, etc. the more that it helps you understand and relate to other people. I have become fascinated with personality type assessments and believe the information and insight that you can gain from understanding your type and those of your team can help you to become a stronger leader, better manager and better human being.
I found out when my kids were very young that they required me to parent them differently. I could not expect the same things from my daughter as my son. I could not motivate them or discipline them the same because they both wired very differently. Same things goes with adults - customers and employees alike. We all of have our own pasts, different life experiences, different perceptions and preconceived notions about the world and how things should be. We all have different filters and I am passionate about learning about the different personality types and helping everyone I meet to learn more about these powerful tools.
Some people are motivated by money, some are motivated by quality time, some are more extroverted, some pay closer attention to details than others. Understanding these innate and learned preferences can help you to make hiring decisions, ensure that you are utilizing your staff to the best of their abilities and helping them to become the best version of themselves.
I encourage you to take the time to do these assessments and share them with your loved ones and your team. It takes a village to accomplish our goals and I believe that surrounding yourself with the right people can help you achieve your dreams and become a better person.
