The Ritberger Personality Method™
Certification Program

Level One (Fundamentals) ~ Three-Day Training
According to most personality theories, each personality type has predictable behavioral patterns that reveal who they are and why they act the way they do. However, what most theories don’t take into consideration is that the neurological aspect of personality determines how a person thinks. The importance of understanding this aspect of personality is that it drives how a person gathers information, processes information, and makes decisions. Therefore it determines their communication style, the words they use, what motivates them, what irritates them, their values and principles, the tasks they’ll be drawn to and the tasks they’ll avoid, and what creates stress, and the relationships they’ll create. All of which impacts their interaction with other people.

When you understand the foundation of personality and how and why people are different, it’s easier to bridge those differences to create mutually satisfying relationships. Tension, stress and power struggles are minimized. The lines of communication begin to open as you learn to speak the language of personality. It becomes possible to embrace differences, to increase productivity, to enhance the quality of relationships, and to create environments where people work from their strengths and feel good about who they are and what they do. Most important, understanding personality helps people make better and healthier choices so they are able to create the life they desire.
