Alnoor is a trained and accredited facilitator for Personality Dimensions® (PD) workshops. PD is a human relations tool based on leading-edge research into human motivation and behaviour. PD helps to explain what motivates behaviour in people with different personalities.
Combine an introductory 3 hour workshop with either a Conflict Resolution or Team Building workshop to create an entire day of learning.
In an ideal workplace, we would all understand each other and get along, however in reality we see things through our own lens. Temperament theory gives us the tools we need to understand the purpose behind behaviours. When we communicate, we have ‘triggers’ that can cause unwelcome behaviour, leaving us feeling uneasy and perhaps stressed. Take the introductory workshop to recognize your own unique blend of strengths and qualities, and to appreciate others’ differences and use your knowledge of self and others to improve interpersonal relations and teamwork.
Facilitating a Personality Dimensions® workshop is one of my happiest days. The anticipation of working with a group of people and bringing them together on a personal journey fills my cup. The pure joy is watching participants learning about themselves and coming to appreciate the abilities and perspective of others.
After the workshop, participants communicate on a whole new level and start talking “in colour”.
Many participants share with me that they have “lightbulb“ moments about themselves when participating in the workshop. They understand why they have had conflict or communication problems with people in their lives and they state that they have learnt how to communicate with other in ways that are effective, respectful and satisfying.
Conflict Resolution (3 hours)
One of the greatest challenges when mediating conflicts is helping parties to focus on the underlying needs, values and beliefs that form the foundation of the positions they have taken. Focusing on the underlying core interests can be a key step in identifying common ground for moving forward. Participants of a conflict resolution workshop will gain additional tools to facilitate positive interactions with others.
- Identify their personal styles and how they and others respond to conflict
- Appreciate the diverse ways individuals can experience and manage conflict
- Examine barriers to conflict resolution
- Learn to adapt to manage conflict in less than ideal situations
- Recognize the different ways people act and react when experiencing conflict
Team Building – (3 hours)
Project teams are becoming increasingly common, but it takes time to build a great team. Personality Dimensions® can facilitate effective communication and shared understanding of team goals and objectives, as well as necessary conditions for personal productivity. Employee engagement is the highlight of this team building workshop.
- Your team will learn how synergies can make the team’s results greater than the sum of individual contributions
- Your team will learn to recognize the strengths each person brings to the team
- Your team will learn to adjust their style of communicating thereby improving efficiency and minimizing unproductive conflict
