People Types Workshops

People Types is a practical, easy-to-use and highly effective tool for teams, managers, salespeople, educators, families and individuals. You’ll learn how to “read” different people and communicate with different personality types more effectively. You’ll learn what makes people tick, what they value, and what motivates them. You’ll learn how to better connect with, relate to and influence others.

People Types was created from a combination of True Colors (with some subtle changes) and Merrill’s Social Styles. There are four distinct types expressed as both colors and social style: 1) Gold (Driver), 2) Green (Analytical), 3) Red (Expressive) and 4) Blue (Amiable). The use of colors makes program elements easy-to-use and easy to remember. It also helps establish a common vocabulary that aids in retention and ongoing application.

The only personality-type program that’s test free! There are many good personality programs on the market, but they all require people to take a test. This is impractical in a sales situation or in any situation where you’re in front of someone and you want to know more about them so that you can better relate. We (About People) developed the means for “reading” a person’s color or type by simply paying attention to their facial expressions, their general tone and demeanor, the words they use and other subtle aspects of their look and surroundings.

We teach People Types to all sorts of organizations from big corporations to small businesses and everything in-between. We work with corporate execs, sales people, techies, financial professionals, creatives, and even call enter staff (yes, we can teach you how to read a person on the phone). We’ve also worked with church groups, schools, prisons, the military, and helped a variety of non-profit and personal development endeavors.

Everyone benefits from learning People Types and using the skills in their life. You’ll be more effective at work, no matter what type of job you have. You’ll be more effective at home and in your personal relationships. We guarantee that People Types will become one of your favorite and most used tools!

The People Types Program is based on the book Face Values, by Michael Lovas and Pam Holloway.
