About This Gathering
Recipient of the 2011 APTi Award for Innovation, Linda Berens, Ph.D. has always been on the leading edge of type. Now she takes us further into the possibilities of how our work with type can contribute to personal, organizational, and global transformation.
What does the world need from typology now? More applications? More growth? More evolutionary development? How can type users avoid the typology pitfalls that get in the way of transformational development and increased agility? How can they actively promote development and adaptability? Integral Type™ is a holographic approach to type that is integrative and growth promoting. Typology models such as Jung’s Psychological Types, Keirsey’s Temperament, Berens’ Interaction Styles can be used in a utilitarian way to influence, persuade and get others to change. Or they can be used in a way that is Integral. Find out how to get I.T.
In this web-based session, Dr. Berens will provide an overview of Integral Type followed by a deeper dive into Interaction Styles, Temperament, and Cognitive Dynamics. You will have the opportunity to get your questions answered as well as see how to use these models in your work with type.
