Eleanor Yearwood, KTPworks - Understanding what makes us Tick, (MBTI personality profiling)

Have you ever had the experience of not being able to understand why people think or act, and as a result of their unexplained behaviour might label them ‘difficult’ or ‘stubborn’?

This is completely common and normal. We don’t always understand our fellow (wo)man and as a result we end up not having the relationship that we might want or need in our professional lives.

In this webinar we will look at:

  • Providing a common language to easily explain the complexities of different personalities using Myers-Briggs (MBTI)
  • Starting with a basic understanding of simple personality differences on: How we take in information, Make decisions, Structure our time and How we are energised.

Janet MacDonald Coaching - Going beyond Stuck!

The experience of feeling stuck is a normal and natural part of moving to the next level in your business and in your personal life. Whether you are:

  • creating something you’ve never done before (developing a new skill) eg a new product, service or direction for your business, or
  • when something you didn’t predict happens eg a change in the market, unexpected new competition, lose your best client etc

Worry and doubt can get in the way of seeing the best way forward. Safe to say we all know what stuck means – we’ve all been there one time or another.

On this webinar we will look at this phenomenon and

  • understand what it is and why it happens
  • what we can do to move through it and out the other side with clarity, focus and ease.

The webinar will have a theoretical aspect and an experiential aspect and to get the most out of it, bring a current experience where you feel stuck or a past experience where you felt stuck and gave up.
