Become a People Puzzle Instructor and you’ll impact lives!

People Puzzle Instructor training is a one-day equipping event for pastors, professionals and business leaders, encompassing three courses, that will dramatically:

  • Improve your people skills
  • Strengthen your leadership abilities
  • Enhance team building opportunities
  • Provide you with three powerful equipping tools

People Puzzle Instructor training trains you to teach THREE LifeChanging people skills Live Events. Through this one-day training you’ll be equipped to bring these live events into both the Christian community and the wider business world. The three People Puzzle Live Events you will be equipped in are:

Sharpening Your People Skills
Geared toward the professional business environment and provides a focus on team building skills. Using a DISC-based behavioural indicator, you’ll learn how to improve relationships in every area of your life. Gain a new perspective on how to maximise strengths, motivate and encourage others based on their unique personality. Designed for leadership teams, company staff, NGO’s, government bodies, teachers and students. With NO Bible references in the participant guide, Sharpening Your People Skills can be used in any context. This this five-and-one-half-hour Live Event is also available in Afrikaans as ‘Verskerp Jou Verhoudingsvaardighede’. 

Solving the People Puzzle
Solidly founded upon Scriptural principles and containing Biblical references and themes, the skills obtained can benefit the participant for a lifetime. Using a DISC-based behavioural indicator, participants discover insights about themselves and what motivates them to do the things they do. By better understanding themselves, they’ll be able to see how they fit into their own “people puzzle” and the “people puzzle” of everyone else in their lives. All areas of life will improve. In this very practical five-and-one-half-hour Live Event those who attend will learn to solve relational problems which used to baffle them. The ultimate benefit is that each person will be able to see where their piece of the puzzle fits. Designed for leadership teams, church staff, mission teams and Christian school teachers. This Live Event is also available in Afrikaans as ‘Solving the People Puzzle in Afrikaans’.

Understanding the Love of Your Life
Improve your marriage using these effective insights! Starting with a DISC-based behavioural indicator, gain a new perspective on how God designed your spouse with specific gifts and strengths. This marriage enrichment event offers a unique and refreshing opportunity to discover or rediscover how God has made you for each other and how teamwork in your marriage will take you to the next level and beyond. This practical five-and-one-half-hour Live Event is highly recommended for those who have been married for years, as well as for those who are engaged or recently married. This Live Event is also available in Afrikaans as  ‘Verstaan die Liefde van Jou Lewe’.

In all three of the above Live Events, a similar building-block approach is used. Three powerful components are combined to produce a practical and usable outcome for participants…

Self-discovery:

Using a highly effective DISC-based behavioural-preference discovery tool participants will learn about their own strengths and talents. They’ll improve relationships and recognize that they have the freedom to be exactly who they are. This realisation also will encourage the freedom to allow others to be exactly who they are.

Understanding others:

Each person will gain a much clearer understanding of those they get along well with and those with whom they have problems, because they’ll be able to recognise what is motivating them.

Improving relationships:

Because attendees will better understand themselves and others, they will have some practical skills at their disposal to build stronger, healthier and more productive relationships.

People Puzzle Live Events can be taught to adults and young people.

Leadership Principles

These leadership principles are taught at a People Puzzle Instructor training event:

Learn about the four personal styles that impact the way people interact and work together.
Understand the strengths and weaknesses of the people around you.
Value and appreciate yourself and others.
Learn how to adapt your personal style and approach to meet the collective need and achieve the greater good.
Apply these principles in order to lead more cohesive teams.
Build stronger teams and families by teaching others to apply the People Puzzle concepts in their daily lives.

When you teach this Live Event you will have the following teaching aids and materials available to you: workbook, workmap (you’ll use one or the other) and PowerPoint presentations. Instructors are also trained to teach without presentation aids such as PowerPoint.

While your initial Instructor Training will be in English (unless otherwise indicated), afterwards you are be encouraged to teach the Live Event in the languages of your choice. You can teach in your mother tongue. The participant workmaps and workbooks for the various Live Events are currently available in English and Afrikaans, with additional languages to be added based on demand.
