       TOOLS for HARMONY WITHIN DIVERSITY:   The Friendly Style Profile

       See posted dates on Tools for Harmony Within Diversity page

for Spring, Fall & Summer 2021

This interactive one-day workshop with Dr. Barbara Daté will provide concrete, practical skills to understand one’s own & others’ behavior using the personal Style inventory tool, the Friendly Style Profile.  By helping us “speak each other’s languages,” Barbara will guide us to explore individual & cultural differences. Whether we are relating to those in our personal lives, to our neighbors, or with our co-workers, we can learn to build healthier relationships, prevent dysfunctional conflict, & become better equipped to understand, affirm, & respect one another.

Together we will explore a model of understanding human behavior that includes specific self-management/self-care skills along with customized interpersonal skills for use in daily life.   Participants will learn how to interpret their own and others’ Gifts & Strengths in both Calm and Storm conditions using the Friendly Style Profile.
