“People say, you are a wimp!”

“All the things which you don’t like about yourself are your greatest assets. They are simply overamplified.” Debbie Ford. Dark Side of the Light Chasers (Hodder & Stoughton)

More than 20 years ago, in the early stage of my career, I was leading a production team. One day, the most senior leader on the site provided me some unsolicited 1:1 feedback: “People say, you are a wimp!” I was shocked!

Over the years, I fortunately came to realize that my behaviour was arising from a positive source of motivation. All I needed was to broaden my own understanding of my “perceived” weakness to turn it into my greatest personal assets: compassion, humility, and a deliberate systematic approach. So instead of resisting my weakness, I started to better understand the value it brings and then consciously embraced that “shadow” aspect of my personality.

Everyone has core motivations that drive their shadow-behaviours and best-self behaviours. PRINT® reveals what these motivators are and in doing so, clarifies what is needed to bring out people’s best. It helps unleash the potential that lies within all people. PRINT® is a valuable guide to create success and reveal what can be done to face and overcome one’s challenges. PRINT® builds insight into others, as well as one’s self.

A PRINT® workshop will bring collaboration, communication, engagement and performance in your team to the next level!
