The PEOPLE Process TYPE Talk Understanding People is what it's all about.
February 2009


This month we're beginning a new series - how to apply personality type while coaching clients in five easy steps. Within the framework of our personality type is a wealth of information about our strengths and lesser-strengths, based on solid scientific research, that is very valuable in the coaching process. In fact, each of us can coach one another by following the guidelines in this article. I know you will find it useful!

Also, with this issue we're beginning a series on applying type to children. This article is taken from Susan Scanlon's "Type Reporter" in November 1992, and is very helpful as a starting point for understanding our children through the lense of type.

    The application of personality type into the coaching process is particularly valuable because you can identify and develop his or her strengths, assist them in recognizing blind spots and how to manage them and strategize a method for personal and career development. Step 1: Assess the Client's Type....... Step 2: Determine Strengths and Challenges.....

    KID TYPES - Extroverts

    When a child does something annoying or troublesome, the first thing parents hear in their heads is a voice saying, "The kid needs discipline. He needs a firm hand. He needs to be put in line." When a child doesn't do something that children are supposed to do, the voice jumps in with: "The kid's just lazy. He needs to be pushed."

    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. Mary Ellen Higgins, SPHR, Director, Training & Development, ACCENT

    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. David Kenny, Director, PKA Training & Development, Ireland

    ...a great tool to help team members understand themselves and their teammates better. My clients love it because it has been delightfully accurate and is a practical "take-away" that they can share with the significant people in their lives. I highly recommend it as a key tool for facilitators to use to assess personality type preferences. Ruth Urban, M.S., Certified Professional Facilitator, The Urban Group, Las Vegas, Nevada
