Employee Relations Content Area

Once you understand the simple biological basis of personalities, you will never look at yourself or others in the same way again. In addition to improving your ability to communicate this information, it will also decrease work-related stress and improve workplace morale and motivation. Human Resources is about to become a lot easier! Learn how to “speak” the language of the 9 basic types of personalities. Also, learn what 3 chemicals create and affect personality and how you can affect those chemicals, as well as be healthier and happier. Working and life will be much less frustrating and potentially downright fun!

Learning Objectives:
• The full understanding (psychological / biological) of “difficult” personalities.
• Learn how to “speak” the language of the 9 basic types of personalities.
• HR Best Practices to handle the unacceptable employee behavior that results from these personalities.
