Local Organizations Benefit From Emergenetics Training

During 2013, certified Emergenetics trainers Janie Pfeifer Watson and Susan Milner facilitated daylong “Meeting of the Minds” workshops. Some groups included Hall County Leadership, Central NE Goodwill Industries, as well as the entire staff at Wholeness Healing Center. Emergenetics is a self-assessment profile of a person’s Thinking (Analytical, Structural, Social, and Conceptual) and Behavioral styles (Expressiveness, Assertiveness and Flexibility).

Participants did pre-assessment work by taking the profile and came prepared to achieve greater self-awareness, particularly
in terms of how they interact and impact others. The workshop featured experiential activities in which newly formed teams used their strengths to work together better. During the training, participants learned that by understanding different thinking and behavioral attributes, they can create a stronger team environment by showcasing and harnessing each member’s unique strengths. Further learning occurred through experiential activities that allowed participants to understand their levels of expressiveness, assertiveness and flexibility.

Emergenetics can be instrumental in efficiently accomplishing individual and team goals, specific work projects and an
ongoing culture of communication and openness. To learn more about how we can help your business or organization
