The following are some of the workshops we deliver at our employment service centres.  The length of each workshop varies.  Some workshops are 2 - 2½ hours, others a full day – 5 - 6 hours.

For most workshops a minimum of 6 participants are required to run the session; some like Personality Dimensions, MBTI and FISH need a minimum of twenty (20) to run. 

  • Personality Dimensions (Canadian version of True Colours): The value of Personality Dimensions (PD) is in its simplicity and reliability.  As a practical, non-threatening, entertaining communications tool, PD focuses on respect, worthiness, and self-esteem for our personal and professional success.  PD opens doors to better understanding and appreciation of ourselves and others.  Each individual determines what colour he or she is.  PD is one way to clarify the difference between “wanna be” and “hafta be”, in order to reach “who I am” and “what I want to become”.
  • MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Inventory):  Understanding your type!  Does one job seem more appealing than another?  Why?  Does a certain work environment draw/repel you?  Why?  Do some work situations pose difficulties for you?  Why?  Take this opportunity to look at your preferences and make a career choice that best suits you.  Reflective and experiential session.

Get set for a lively and fascinating discussion of personal styles.
