|Three Areas to Look, Listen & Respond to in Communication Style - Extravert & Introvert
Comunication is central to our life - we communicate
with others every day, throughout the day.
Understanding, appreciating and accommodating
personality differences in communication style can
bring major success to our effectiveness as a friend,
spouse, employee, supervisor, trainer, leader and
team member. Becoming familiar with the
strengths, approach and how to respond
within each preference's preferred communication
style, can virtually eliminate miscommunication
errors and help you avoid the confusion and chaos
that can result. The following chart gives the three
major areas to look, listen and respond to:
|"I Don't Think It's Right To Type People" - Part 1 Excerpt From The TYPE Reporter, Issue No. 37
You've heard people say that, haven't you? Or
perhaps you've heard them make other darkly
ominous statements like "You have to be careful with
this stuff" or "You type-people must have a need to
put people in boxes." My first reaction to
statements like that is
confusion. I think of the theory of psychological
type as being one of the most positive thinking
frameworks I've ever come across. I have a hard
time imagining how a body of literature that
consistently defines and stresses the highest
potential in people can be used to harm them.

What clients are saying about us.....
The session that I led for our company's twenty
Human Resource & Training Professionals went very
well and the feedback I received was wonderful. The
participants truly enjoyed discovering their "type"
and learning about their peers as well. They loved
The PEOPLE Process tools and said they made it easy
to stay engaged and gave them information in a clear
and concise way. The session lasted about 2-1/2
hours and they were hungry for more! I referred
them to the TPP participant book for further reading.
The learning session was indeed "profound" for all the
participants. As our organization determines next
steps for The PEOPLE Process, I will keep in touch.

We have found this product to be effective in
training diplomats in negotiation and crisis
management skills, retrenched fishermen in job
seeking skills, managers in hi-tech organizations in
career development, hospital emergency-room staff
in managing conflict encounters, civil servants in time
management skills, trainers in advanced facilitation
skills, and entrepreneurs in new business start-ups.
Without exception, participants have been able to
relate easily to the use of the system, are amazed at
the uncanny accuracy of the personality type profile,
and have been able to apply The PEOPLE Process in
their daily work.

recommend it as a key tool for facilitators to use to
assess personality type preferences.
