Sessions & Facilitators
How many times have you struggled introducing the cognitive processes (or function-attitudes) to clients in a way that simplifies the delivery and yet recognizes the richness of the content? In this session, you will practice a variety of experiential activities to bring the cognitive processes to life. Most adults enjoy learning by doing and this workshop will provide you with ideas and techniques to make type interactive and relevant to all learning styles.

What if one engaging exercise could help your participants understand their own type preference, the value of the “other side,” the difference between type and trait theories, type’s impact on communication and relationships, the differences between preferences and skills development, all while applying the concepts to a team issue? Welcome to using polarity thinking, exploring interdependent sets of values that over time need each other, to introduce type. In this session, you’ll experience such an exercise and pick up tips on using such exercises with clients.

I don’t believe we were ever meant to use the Jungian functions in isolation. Nothing stands alone. Uniting opposite functions is the alchemy of Type. How can we explain this to our clients clearly and effectively without causing confusion?
This session explores practical ways to do this. What images can be used? What questions can be asked? What life lessons can be learnt?

How often do we listen to a speaker, nod wisely, then fail to implement what we have just “learned”? This is especially true of behaviour – there is no substitute for learning from experience. This activity – based on the game Bananagrams – enables you to introduce the Interaction Styles lens of type to your clients in a practical way. They get valuable insights about what drives their behaviour and stresses them when they interact with others – and what to do about it.
