Do you talk about ideas when others are talking about reality? Do you wonder why others are confused by processes that seem simple to you? These questions and many others will be answered through the Keirsey Temperament Sorter.
People are different from each other…no amount of getting after them is going to change them. Nor is there any reason to change them, because the differences are probably good. – Dr. David West Keirsey
In the early 1990s, I was introduced to the Keirsey Temperament Theory and the Sorter (KTS). I worked in a small, self-directed team in the provincial government and we were looking for tools to help us communicate better and to figure out who was best suited to do tasks that didn’t fall under anyone’s job description.
We used our results to understand each other and our customers, and I continued to use it informally with coworkers, friends and family for the next fifteen years.
In 2006, I earned my professional certification in Keirsey Temperament Theory and started using it in my individual and team coaching.
Though I have added other assessments to my practice, the KTS is my favourite tool for coaching people in and beyond the workplace.
