About the event

A 4 week program exploring communication with others. Opposite Strengths is an evidence based program that has been helping countless people since it was developed by Dr. Jay Thomas in 1955.

The  Opposite Strengths program flows from one simple, central idea: how to  find yourself through personal growth, creativity, productivity, and  effectiveness result from the blending, or interaction, of two opposite  strengths.  The two strengths have equal values and are in perfect  opposition to one another – much like the Yin is to the Yang. This is a  cutting-edge, evidence-based program approved by the American  Psychological Association to help you achieve the following:Help you understand yourself and your core strengths. Help you understand others and how to relate and communicate effectively, thus improving your relationships. Help you understand that timing is just as important as the content of your communication. Help you balance your strengths to avoid unpleasant physical, mental and emotional pitfalls.
