A Taste of Colour at the Consulate General of Canada in Hong Kong
It was a pleasant surprise when I received a call from the Consulate General of Canada in Hong Kong requesting for a 1.5-hour training on Personality Dimensions® during their immigration section annual retreat. This would be their very first exposure to Personality Dimensions®, and they are eager to learn what Personality Dimensions® is about.
Since we did not have enough time to conduct a full Personality Dimensions® assessment, and the group size of 70 was too big for a regular workshop, I decided to deliver the ‘Taste of Colour” exercise instead. The organizers were worried that 1.5 hours of training without a break in between would be too heavy for their staff. Before they know it, the 1.5 hours were over, and they found themselves asking for more! We all had a wonderful time playing People Bingo and getting a taste of Inquiring Green, Authentic Blue, Organized Gold, and Resourceful Orange. We were joined by The Consul General for most of the training.
The feedback from the group after the training was positive, and I hope Personality Dimensions® will gain more popularity in staff training and retreats at the Canadian Consulate in Hong Kong and beyond!
