Course Description:
Effective working relationships are crucial in all workplaces, and especially healthcare. Working relationships impact the quality of care and service we provide. 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 self and others, Personality Dimensions motivates and inspires team members to work together more effectively, boosting team morale and outcomes.

Special Course Features:
Personality Dimensions is the latest evolution in presenting Personality Temperament Theory. It builds on research conducted in Canada over a period or two decades, and the foundations established by the work of Carl Jung, David Keirsey, Linda Berens, as well as a history of Temperament that spans 25 centuries.
The Personality Dimensions system utilizes a convenient, short questionnaire to reveal personality preferences. In addition to being the first Temperament assessment to incorporate the Introversion/Extraversion dichotomy, Personality Dimensions also uses four colours along with short descriptors and symbols to represent the Temperament preferences: Inquiring Green, Organized Gold, Authentic Blue, Resourceful Orange. These combined aspects create a common language of understanding with a high level of retention.
Each participant in a Personality Dimensions workshop will receive a copy of the PD In Action booklet. This handy booklet includes brief descriptions of introversion and extraversion, as well as descriptions of: core needs, characteristics, strengths, skills, weaknesses, likes, and various other areas for each of the four temperaments.
*A mandatory personality dimensions assessment must be completed before you attend this course
