Connect to the best in yourself and others

Did you know? Your personality is unique!

Remember: we are not a Personality Type

A different combination of the six types takes center stage in every one of us. With PCM, we do not speak about types of people but rather personality types in people. Each Personality Type is OK. No one type is better or worse, more or less smart, more OK or less OK than any other.

Each type has specific motivators characterized by differences in Character Strengths, Psychological Needs, Perceptions and Favored Communication Channels. Recognizing these differences is crucial in connecting, motivating and resolving conflict.

Use PCM to identify and leverage our differences. And make a difference for yourself, and others. Big and small. Every day.
