Registration closed

Approved for SHRM & HRCI Credit!

People are a major asset for an organization and they are complex with unique personalities, values (motivations), skills, experiences and much more.  Harnessing strengths, determining potential and aligning people to effectively work together toward common goals is a huge undertaking.  Join us to learn about personality differences – how we are similar and different - and how to apply this information throughout the HR life-cycle in your business!


You will learn:


  • The 5 core traits from the Five Factor Model of Personality
  • The 5 trait continuum and where your traits may fall on the continuum
  • How an individual’s trait and sub-trait scores can be used throughout the HR life-cycle
  • Outcomes for your organization:
  • Improved job/employee fit, resulting in increased engagement, productivity, and longevity with the organization
  • Enhanced communication and reduced conflict
