Talking Type Together with your Vital Relationships – Sterling Bates

November 14, 2021 @ 11:45 am 12:45 pm Australia/Sydney

Scientific studies continue to show that the biggest impact on life satisfaction and happiness is our vital relationships and core social bonds. Medical studies show relationship strength as a major factor in long term health outcomes. Learn what some of this research has to say about the crucial importance of relationships. We will cover multiple models, both psychological type models and other relationship-related tools from outside the psychological type space. We will highlight which models offer insights for relationships and also cover which models and strategies don’t work well for building strong relationships. Attendees will get key tools and tips on how to use the different models to help their own relationships and further, help those they care about, or their clients in their relationships too.
