Program Design

The Training program designed by Personality Matters provides methods, models and tools to support these competencies. Our trainings are engaging, interactive, and practical for all trainees. Through guided activities, specific case studies, role-plays and more, participants learn to enhance their DEI coaching skills. We enable each person to communicate, build trust and respect and coach effectively.

The program will be a mix of synchronous and asynchronous learning. Classes will include virtual learning via zoom, discussions and highly engaging group and pair practice with experienced coaches. Asynchronous learning will include self-study, learning, research, writing and activities that are outside of synchronous learning.
