The Well-Tempered Life Program

A Program For Stress Relief, Health and Balance

The Well-Tempered Life program consists of three components: defining your vision, understanding personality diversity, and using a highly interactive problem-solving process for creating a life plan.

Focus on Balance

Through interactive group work, participants clarify their professional purpose, activate self-mastery initiatives, and acquire the necessary tools to cope with the excessive demands and pressures of a changing world. Participants will:

  • develop a professional purpose
  • assess personality strengths
  • shape and refine personal initiatives
  • gain a greater ability to cope with stress
  • improve communication strategies
  • increase personal productivity
  • improve powers of concentration
  • improve self-image and increase stamina

Focus on Relationships

Relationships are built when people understand and tolerate differences. They are enhanced when we appreciate, tap into, and maximize the talents of others. The following topics are available as public seminars or in-house training workshops.

  • Personality differences are real... participants will learn how to use a model for understanding personality differences.
  • Making the best use of time...participants understand how personality patterns influence time management habits.
  • Change is necessary...participants will gain an understanding of their unique reactions for dealing with change.
  • Dealing with differences... participants will gain insights and tools for maintaining assertive communication patterns.
  • Decisions shape our lives...for clearer, more focused decision making, participants will take away a valuable decision making process.

Understanding and working with the diversity of expression that is present on our teams, in our families, with our clients, and within ourselves can increase our ability for creating a workplace and a family environment conducive to mutual respect, risk-taking, critical thinking and pro-active problem solving. These skills lead to increased satisfaction when living and working with others.

Focus on Problem Solving

When our direction is clear, feelings of frustrations are easily replaced with enthusiasm and energy for jumping the hurdles to successful outcomes. One of the major stresses for executives, managers, and self-directed individuals in their day-to-day encounters with others is confronting the challenge of problems and finding acceptable, supportive solutions. The part of our workshop provides a creative, structured approach to problem solving by working through key developmental phases.

Individuals begin the process by reaching agreement on their problem and then defining the outcomes they are after. Through team consensus, the process assists individuals in identifying key barriers to resolving the problem, determining steps to deal with obstacles, and coordinating action items and timelines that support closing the problem gap. A problem is defined as the gap between the current reality and the future outcome.

This highly facilitative process provides the individual or team with a focused and structured approach for working through any problem to its conclusion in a creative, cooperative, systematic and supportive way.


When dealing with difficult situations, coming from your core value and understanding or personal needs can make a difference in your results and how you feel about your life. Self-understanding is the key to all interactions with others. Personality type understanding increases awareness around process issues. With increased understanding of personal preferences comes the ability to take greater risks, asking for what you need, and mentoring others along the way to become more of who they are. Personality understanding facilitates effective applications of differences when problem-solving for powerful results. Individuals will explore a current issue taking a structured approach for solving a problem. A problem is defined as the difference between the current reality and the future goal or dream someone wishes to achieve. No matter what the problem is, this process can lead to improved results. These tools and insights can also be used when working with others.
