Personality awareness training

Personality awareness training is beneficial to everyone. The impact of personality in the work place is immense, from basic communication to influencing other and managing change. Why do some people seem so abrupt? Why do some people take a long time over a piece of work? Why do some people relish change but others avoid it and get very anxious about it. A lot of the answers lie in understanding personality.

What is personality awareness training?

Personality awareness training gives you a framework to understand personality. There are a wide variety of frameworks or models which do this, but they are all based on the same ideas developed by Carl Jung and his personality types. Training will help you to make sense of your personality and those of others.

Personality is very complex and behaviours which give insight to personality are affected by many factors; diet, pressure, hormones, weather etc. Training will give you a framework for developing an understanding of personality.


The ITD approach to personality awareness training

Our approach to personality awareness training uses  the ITD work style model. This is a personality model which is simple to understand and easy to apply.  No model can explain the entire complexity of personality, but this one gives enough to understand the dynamics at work. It gives you a set of tools to use in situations at work and therefore helps to improve understanding and performance.

Typical training needs of those on our personality awareness training

  • “I want to understand my personality and how this impacts at work.”
  • “I sometimes get into situations with colleagues which I would like to understand better and find ways to resolve.”
  • “It would be really interesting to understand the personalities in my team and understand how that impacts on how we work together.”
  • “As a t leader I want to get to know my team and understand them more.”


ITD’s unique behavioural change action implementation tool

Working with our behavioural scientist we have developed a unique approach to post training action implementation. This will give you the best opportunity for implementing the behavioural changes you decided on at the end of the personality awareness training. Based on a great deal of research, our approach is simple, robust and very easy to develop.
