Understanding Ourselves and Others

Course Description

People are different in fundamental ways. They want different things; they have different motives, purposes, aims, values, needs, and drives. Because of these differences, it’s not easy to have consistently good relationships with everyone you interact with: co-workers, customers, suppliers, family, friends, neighbors, and acquaintances. Some people, though, are better than others at creating and maintaining relationships. Our success at work and happiness in life depends in large measure on our ability to relate well to others; therefore, it is important for us to increase our understanding of people we work and live with. Through the understanding of ourselves and others it is possible to manage such differences so work relationships are enhanced, productivity is increased, and there is more richness and spice to life. The challenge we all have is that we need to work and live together. This session will identify the basic differences in people and how each one of us needs to cope, embrace, and celebrate our differences.
