Personality has been considered by some as a somewhat fluffy description of oneself, decided by questionnaires and only vaguely accurate. Nothing could be further from the truth. The two questions that are really being asked are: In what environment do I thrive and how does my mind work? Knowing this about yourself and others is vital to wellness, mental health and good communication. The fact is we are different and that difference matters. Exactly how different is often a huge surprise. When we accept this, and take action on it, our relationships improve across the board; with colleagues, students, friends and family.

Sue will deliver a series of webinars which will help you understand more about this fascinating topic. We will cover the Myers Briggs framework in a very different way. The first session will give an overview of personality and then explore Extraversion and Introversion from personal, teaching and learning perspectives.

You will learn, laugh and leave enlightened!

What you'll learn

  • A better understanding of oneself
  • An insight into how other people's personality preferences influence our lives
  • Practical tools for differentiation in the classroom

Target audience

Educators and school leaders at every level, pre-school to high school and beyond!
