How do you help people really hone their personal and professional strengths and understand their opportunities for growth?
Gather a disparate group of professionals – from the Virginia Credit Union, the Library of Virginia, Children, Incorporated, and the Greater Richmond Chamber, among others - to exercise self-awareness, personal development and relationship building. Mix well.
Career coach Debra Saneda and I were excited to see 32 participants gain a better understanding of their personality style and the role it plays in their relationships at our one-day workshop, Insights for Personal and Workplace Effectiveness.
Debra and I walked the group through discussions on perceptions, personality, team effectiveness – and how increasing our awareness can help us be more effective and engaged in our work.
Everyone was engaged, curious and eager to understand their individual Insights profiles. We asked tough questions of each other. We had a good time. We forged new relationships. We invigorated and exhausted each other the way a good workout might.
One measure of the workshop’s success is that we’re already making plans for three additional offerings in 2011, and have been invited to conduct similar sessions for several of the organizations who attended.
If your organization is looking for a unique, powerful way to engage individuals and strengthen teams, let us know. Debra and I will be happy to introduce the Insights Discovery model to you.
