As professional facilitators and trainers, we have many different tools at our disposal that can leave a lasting, and positive impact on the people we work with. Personality Dimensions® happens to be my favourite, and not just because I work for the publisher, CLSR Inc.! If you’ve already obtained your Personality Dimensions® qualification, congratulations! You’re already on the path to personal and professional growth, but if you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to build on what you’ve already learned. (If that doesn’t reveal my personality dimensions, I don’t know what will) There’s lots of things you can do to level up your Personality Dimensions® qualification and unlock your true potential, and these are just a few to think about.
Knowledge is good
While getting your Personality Dimensions® certification is an awesome achievement, it’s just the beginning of your journey. To further enhance your understanding, delve deeper into the framework and explore its intricacies. Read books, articles, and research papers related to personality type and temperament theory. Expand your knowledge by attending workshops, conferences, and webinars conducted by experts in the field. The more you learn, the better equipped you’ll be to apply Personality Dimensions® in various contexts.
The more you read, the more things you shall know. The more that you learn, the more places you shall go.
To truly level up your Personality Dimensions® qualification, embrace the concept of lifelong learning. Stay updated with the latest developments and research in the field of personality psychology. Attend advanced training programs and workshops specifically designed for Personality Dimensions® practitioners, or a refresher course with a Master Trainer. We’ve got some additional exciting stuff in the works, so keep an eye out for an announcement. Engaging in continuous learning will not only deepen your understanding but also keep you competitive in the job market or as in independent consultant, and make it easier for you to adapt your practice to the evolving needs of individuals and organizations.
Once you’ve mastered Personality Dimensions® facilitation, consider taking the next step to become a Level II Facilitator Trainer. Level II trainers bring their own unique style and experiences to the curriculum to make a positive impact on the next generation of Level I Personality Dimensions® facilitators.

Practice What You Preach

By practising empathy and flexibility, you’ll enhance your effectiveness as a Personality Dimensions® practitioner and positively impact the lives of those you engage with and make you a better facilitator.
Alright stop, collaborate and listen
Connect with fellow Personality Dimensions® facilitators and professionals in related fields to foster collaboration and share experiences. Join online forums, social media groups, or attend networking events to exchange insights and best practices. Engaging in meaningful discussions will expose you to different perspectives and broaden your understanding of how Personality Dimensions® can be applied in various contexts. Additionally, sharing your own experiences and success stories will not only inspire others, but also reinforce your own learning. The Personality Dimensions® LinkedIn Group is a great place to start.
Your Personality Dimensions® certification is an excellent tool for personal and professional growth. However, to truly level up, it’s important to continuously deepen your knowledge, engage in lifelong learning, practice what you preach, and collaborate with others. By actively applying the principles of Personality Dimensions® in various areas of your life, you can unleash your true potential and become a catalyst for positive change. Remember, the journey to personal and professional development is ongoing, and by embracing it wholeheartedly, you’ll continuously evolve and make a meaningful impact on those around you.
