Why is COLAB Important
While many individuals may feel mentally secure, it's essential to consider that not everyone around them shares the same perspective. Regardless of their current roles, people inevitably interact with others who may not be in a similar mental state. These situations demand specific skills that not only benefit individuals but also enhance interpersonal relationships and team dynamics.
COLAB goes beyond conventional approaches and aims to help participants understand their own character on a deeper level. Even if someone believes they know themselves well, the program can reveal hidden facets and provide insights that drive personal growth. Unlike traditional "personality tests," COLAB engages individuals in profound introspective work.
The COLAB workshop is modular, meaning it can be structured to meet the needs of a diverse set of locations and groups. There are 5 sections. The sections can be arranged to meet varying schedules while still building to the ultimate goal of strengthening the individual and the team.
Depending on the amount of attendees, each section can range from a few hours to a full day. Each section will have 3 units each. First is the instructional unit, followed by the testing unit, then a final review unit to discuss the results of the testing unit as well as a recap.
Upon completion, each individual will privately receive their individual scores and results based on the testing in each section as well as the final review from the instructor. Each attendee will also receive a certificate of completion and team will receive an overall score.
