Our Four Tendencies - How We Manage Our Own and Others Expectations (Group)

Back to Package

The Four Tendencies model, designed by Gretchen Rubin, divides us into four groups: Upholders, Obligers, Questioners, and Rebels. Understanding this framework will bring to light why you do certain things and why your team members either do, don’t do, or constantly question what is asked of them! This session explains the 4 Tendencies Model of how we manage expectations of ourselves and others and how leaders can determine where their people fall and how to manage them.
