Discovering Personal Effectiveness - DPE

About this workshop

Self-awareness is at the heart of professional growth and development. By understanding ourselves, we are able to better connect with others, create meaningful relationships at work, improve our personal leadership and be more effective in our communications.

Based on the work of psychologist Carl Jung, the Insights Discovery Personal Profile provides individuals with a detailed understanding of their personal style, how their style impacts their relationships with others, how they can improve their communications and interactions with others, areas of strengths, possible blind spots and suggestions for development.

This experiential workshop provides participants with a language and framework to better understand themselves, understand others and adapting and connecting to enhance communication.

This workshop focuses on strengths - strengths used easily, and strengths in development.
