We know that there are many instruments out there that our clients can select. The big question is, how do we get them to select a Type instrument and make Type a permanent part of their culture? And, how can we get them to book us for return engagements?

Sharon W. Lovoy, SPHR, (ENFP) a former Human Resources Director, who has had a thriving consulting business since 1991, has found ways to encourage her clients to use Type instead of other instruments or, in addition to other instruments. She has discovered many ways to make Type, and her company, part of an organization’s culture including volunteering to extend Type training to the families of those who participate at the company, embedding Type in the organizations’ culture and life.

Sharon believes as Type Practitioners, we all need to be on a mission to make sure that we stay in the conversation and, become an essential part of the conversation. She is happy to share what she has learned and to engage the Type Community in thinking together strategically about how we can gain more ground in the corporate training landscape.

The Magic Diamond: Coaching Type Development – Dario Nardi

Magic Diamond

November 6, 2020 @ 9:00 am 10:00 am Australia/Sydney

Online Event

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.

Taking Type Exercises from Good to Great

type exercisesJane Kise joins us at the AusAPT National Conference in Melbourne in November 2019 from the US to present on ‘Three Keys to Effective Type Exercises‘: “Making type visible through exercises is a key tool for helping individuals and teams improve ability to communicate, collaborate, and change. However, there’s a world of difference between conducting an exercise and facilitating it successfully to change people’s mindsets. We’ll explore how to choose the “right” exercise, form groups (especially when not all types are present), and debrief. “ Jane provides this article on ‘Taking Type Exercises from Good to Great’  as background for her presentation (more…)
