Know Yourself

the foundations for personal effectiveness

Why are some working relationships so easy - there seems to be a natural ‘fit’ with the other person - communication is fast and you appear to ‘speak the same language’? Why are other relationships fraught with tension and differences seem insurmountable?

Our Know Yourself offerings enable you to understand why this happens and what you can do about it, providing the essential foundations to kick start self-discovery: increasing your self-awareness and understanding of how you behave, why you behave in this way and why it’s challenging when people act differently from you – for you and for them.

Based on a combination of research and real practical experience of what works and what doesn’t, we help you

  • Gain insights into your problem solving styles (using the VIEW™ assessment) how you respond to change; the style of processing you prefer and the approach you take when making decisions
  • Improve your working relationships by understanding your differences - how your problem solving style preferences influence your own behavior and impact your behavior when working with others
  • Gain insights into your personal values and how these strongly felt, enduring beliefs drive and steer the way you act and can trigger defensiveness
  • Understand the consequences when working with, or leading others and use these insights productively to improve working relationships, teamwork and collaboration
