    Every person you meet or interact with is a unique individual. We all have different values, motivations, opinions, and ways of communicating. This diversity is what makes life so interesting, and is also the cause of much heartache and misunderstanding. Understanding all the temperaments involved in the interaction gives you an advantage. In this workshop you will learn more about yourself and your preferences as well as others when it comes to work, parenting, relationships and more.
