The Magic Diamond: Coaching Type Development – Dario Nardi
November 6, 2020 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am Australia/Sydney
How can we really encourage people to attend to type development? Traditionally, opposites are shown along a spectrum, implying people find a balancing point. But Jung observed a “transcendent” function that is a novel “alchemical” synthesis of opposites, leading to a new result. In this workshop, we use a Magic Diamond shape with four facets, such as Thinking, Feeling, undifferentiated, and synthesis. This shape invites people to fill in the synthesis facet. We will go over examples for the types and look at a typical coaching arc that goes from strengths to the shadow to overcoming one-sidedness through new habits.
Dario Nardi, PhD is an internationally renowned researcher, speaker, and instructor in neuroscience, personality, and education. He was certified in type in 1994 and has authored many books including ‘Neuroscience of Personality’, ‘8 Keys to Self-Leadership, ‘Jung on Yoga’, ’16 Personality Types: Descriptions for Self-Discovery’ and recently, ‘The Magic Diamond.’
