Who are you?

Personality ModelsI am fairly sceptical about personality questionnaires and models.

However, they do have one big benefit. As you answer the questions and then evaluate your profile at the end, you're pushed to reflect on who you are, how you think and how you act.

And this reflection can be the trigger to do a little work on yourself so that you can become the best versions of you.

So, if you would like to invest 5 minutes to reflect, here's a link to a quick, 30-question survey based on the Big Five Model (generally accepted as the most robust of all the personality models). 

[note: if you get to the end and don't immediately see your report, scroll back up and make sure that your response has been recorded for every question]

Face-to-Face Training may not be so effective …

A typical face-to-face training session consists of a presentation by a facilitator, followed immediately by an activity to apply the learning. There is little time for reflection or deeper analysis and, as a result, activities intended to deepen learning, like role plays, tend to be superficial. There’s a quick debrief and then on to the next topic. No chance to go away and experiment in the real world in situations where there is something at stake. At the end of the training day, you’re exhausted and any learning from earlier in the day is rapidly fading.

There is a limit to how much knowledge can be crammed into the human brain in a single day.

And then, when you return to work, you have to catch-up on all the stuff that accumulated while you were away. Often, you don’t even try to apply your learning – you’re too busy getting stuff done and within days the training is a fuzzy blur.

What a waste of your time – and money!

Face-to-Face Training is Expensive

The online content in each edge course, if delivered face-to-face, would normally require 2 to 3 days and cost several times our individual and group courses. Plus, if delivered off-site, there would be additional travel and accommodation expenses and time away from work.
