The 5 Personality Patterns Intro Workshop

The Key to Understanding People


This workshop will open up your way of seeing people like nothing has before.

We’ll explore what happens inside different people when they get distressed, how they habitually respond to try to feel safer, and how those habits shape their entire experience of life. We’ll start with people in general, then tease out the 5 main strategies people use, then help you discover which ones you use to feel safer. And the best part is, instead of listening to someone lecture you about these things, you’ll be learning it all from real life, from your own behavior and from those around you.  You’ll be learning to see with your own eyes what’s going on inside people.  It’s like having x-ray vision!

During this fun, informative weekend, you’ll discover:

  • how you try to stay safe
  • how other people try to stay safe and “Why do they react that way?”
  • how to communicate with them so that they feel deeply seen and understood
  • what different people need and how to help them get it
  • how best to work with them in any situation
