Many of you will recognize the name of the author of this week’s instalment of Personality Dimensions® Pandemic Pastimes with Master Trainers: Sandra Summerhayes. Sandra has put her Resourceful Orange to good use, helping many facilitators over the hump of embracing the world of training Personality Dimensions® virtually. She not only offered the Delivering Personality Dimensions® in a Virtual World training, but has worked with us on updating many resources and Toolkits to include virtual applications. I think she was a little surprised when we spoke over a year ago, and I asked if she could come up with a training program that would launch a month later – and at that moment her summer plans were changed! I hope you will take Sandra up on her challenge to share with all of us what your biggest takeaway was from the COVID-era.
Yours from the back office…
Has COVID Impacted Your Business?
COVID-19 was the end of my business…or so I thought. As an Extraverted Authentic Blue–Resourceful Orange, the lack of interaction with people left me wallowing in self-pity and self-doubt… for about 3 weeks. Then my Resourceful Orange took over, and I decided to learn everything there was to know about virtual training using Zoom – a platform I had never used before. People came together and shared their knowledge and expertise freely to help everyone transition to this new reality we were facing. I went from knowing virtually nothing (pun intended) about Zoom to teaching others how to use it. My biggest takeaway was the understanding that almost anything one can facilitate in person, one can facilitate virtually. Delivering Personality Dimensions® in a Virtual World training and so much more stemmed from that.
What is your biggest takeaway this year? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
