Connect2 Personality MappingTM is a powerful guided process designed to explore the layers of the physical and psycho-emotional Self. It is a way of illuminating an individual’s intra- and inter-personal relationships, which may include one’s own-- and often previous generations’--unfinished business. Individuals’ maps are played out in the corporate environment. With the stress and pressure of daily business and long-term plans, each team member needs to access his/her best, most productive self.

About Connect2 Personality Mapping
Unfortunately, when stress increases, many people resort to early learned behaviors and coping mechanisms that served them well earlier in life, but may be detrimental at work.
Connect 2 Personality MappingTM During childhood we create maps for ourselves that frame our realities and shape our behaviors, often for the rest of our lives. These early maps are grounded in our genetic predispositions and shaped through our earliest childhood experiences, including interactions with parents, grandparents, siblings, and other significant people in our lives. They carry important information on what is acceptable and what must be hidden in our lives. 1
As we grow into adulthood, these personality maps are carried into our personal and work lives, affecting how we express ourselves, interpret our emotions, and interact with others. If they are distorted by a difficult upbringing, they can become roadmaps for unhappy relationships and skewed views of reality.
But we now know that the brain retains neural plasticity throughout life (Cozolino, 2002), and we can learn to respond differently once we understand our own circumstances. The purpose of Personality Mapping, then, is to examine the maps that direct our feelings, to explore how they affect our behaviors and relationships, and ultimately, to integrate these maps into our adult awareness so that we are able to make better choices. Simply put, the end-goal is to alter the maps, transform the brain, and reframe our feelings and responses so that they become rich, appropriate and authentic. This leads to self-esteem, team building, and therefore increased individual and team productivity.
1Kurtz (1990) calls them maps. Fisher (1992) refers to them as character strategies. Jung used the term personality types.
