Mary Miscisin – Get Curious, Not Furious: Understanding Personality Styles

Is there someone in your life you would like to understand or get along with better?
Ever wish others would understand YOUR way of doing things?

Each of us has our own style, preferences, and ways of operating.  Some people like to pause and connect before starting work discussions while others want to skip the small talk and get straight to the agenda. You may enjoy the comfort of preparing a detailed plan and sticking to it while others enjoy the adrenaline rush of last minute decision making and acting in the moment. The differences can be endless.

How do we recognize and value each other’s approach instead of driving each other crazy?

This action-packed, fun-filled workshop provides insights into the preferences and motivations of different personality styles.

As a Participant you will:

-  Identify the unique combination of traits that make up your style
–  Discover what you have in common or contrary to others
–  Recognize what brings out the worst in each style
–  Distinguish what brings out the best in each style
–  Clear up misconceptions that are at the root of mnay personality clashes
–  Understand what makes you (and others) tick and build harmonious relationships where
you never thought possible.

If you are dealing with a “difficult” co-worker or “annoying others” that seem to ruin your day, you will learn to get curious, instead of furious!  Find out how to turn irritation into appreciation and conflict into cooperation by opening up lines of communication, embracing differences and bringing out the best in everyone!

Your presenter, Mary Miscisin is best known for her fascinating programs, high energy and positively engaging style that makes learning easy and fun. She is the author of Showing Our True Colors, a fun, easy guide for understanding yourself and others. It is used for relationship-building and conflict solving from the US Military to Disneyland! Her work has been featured in magazines, radio shows and public television as the host of the PBS Special, “Get Curious, Not Furious – Communicating Your True Colors. Prepare yourself for an action-packed, get-involved adventure where you’ll discover powerful tools to reduce stress and frustration and increase your personal and professional effectiveness.

Rita Emmett – Blast Away Procrastination: Get it Done Now!


Are you overwhelmed with all that you’ve been putting off? Is it almost impossible to get yourself going? Do you know what you need to do in order to be successful at work, in a relationship, with your life — but you just put off doing it? Many people are constantly tired because of what they DO, but putting off what-you-know-you-should-do is usually more exhausting, more debilitating than hard work, right? If you can’t find the time for this session, perhaps THIS is the session you need.

Rita Emmett – Stress Management for the Overworked, Overscheduled Overwhelmed
(Receive this FREE  AUTOGRAPHED book with your conference registration!)

Do you ever feel so overwhelmed that you fear you will completely burn-out? Do you say “When this busy time is over, THEN I’ll get together with friends and kick back” or “When this stress ends, THEN I’ll relax and enjoy life” but you know that as soon as one busy time or stressful time ends, another begins. Don’t wait till a doctor has to give you a prescription to enjoy life.

Stress ELIMINATION seminars simply don’t exist. No matter what you do you WILL have stress in your life. Learn to manage it in a healthy way instead of letting stress leave you feeling fragmented, frantic or frazzled. Come and learn how to become an energetic stress-buster.
