“We need to figure out which part of us is engaging what part of another person,” says Dr. Beebe
Louisville, KY (PRWEB) April 10, 2012
To help make teams and other workplace and personal relationships more productive and enjoyable—and less stressful—Type Resources will present a workshop with prominent Jungian Analyst Dr. John Beebe, on May 18-19, 2012.
Based on Dr. Beebe’s eight function-attitude, eight archetype model, the workshop is titled “Winning the War Within” to emphasize the inner—and usually unconscious—processes that create conflict and personality clashes.
Grounded in the depth psychology of Carl Jung, Dr. Beebe’s model is intended to provide a deeper, clearer, more detailed way of understanding and dealing with personality types and their interactions than the older Myers-Briggs (MBTI) system.
“We need to figure out which part of us is engaging what part of another person,” says Dr. Beebe. “Only then can we understand the interactions that don’t work for us, and get clearer how to use our function-attitudes more wisely.”
“Most of what goes on in interpersonal dynamics is unconscious,” adds Bob McAlpine, president of Type Resources. “We tend to assume that others react to what we say and do the way we would, which isn’t necessarily the case. As a result, the messages we intend to send—both overtly and by implication—often differ from what’s received. That can lead to misdirection, hurt feelings, resentments…not what you want in the workplace or your personal life.”
According to McAlpine, who will be co-facilitating the workshop, “It’s an ideal workshop for anyone wanting to improve their interactions with others. The principles work in any relationship, from marriages and friendships to the largest enterprises.”
David Hughey, a former newspaper publisher and the founder and president of the Transition Leading consultancy in Durham, NC, says he has been impressed with Beebe’s approach. “It’s helped me help my clients—both organizations and individuals—to work more effectively and enjoyably. I expect this workshop to be as outstanding as the previous ones.”
