Teacher Diary 8(-3)

August 20, 2013

Job-Alikes Day. This was the day to meet our colleagues from other schools in the district and plan collaboratively. Not much of that really happened, We had some breakout sessions and in one, I learned about a personality inventory called DIRT. Yes, DIRT. It identifies your interpersonal relationship style as a Doer, Influencer, Relater, or Thinker. It’s almost scarily accurate. If teammates actually used this to guide their interactions, much progress could be made; after all, the number one reason people quit jobs is because they “can’t get along” with the people they work with (or for). Take two minutes and try it: http://www.iidc.indiana.edu/cedir/dirt/ I’ll be happy to share my results… tomorrow.

    THE RELATERS
    Relaters are valuable to a team because they are great at building relationships! They tend to be motivated by being appreciated and building harmonious relationships. They are very interested in personal interactions, sometimes to the detriment of the task. They are great communicator and encourage two-way flow. They are also excellent listeners. Emotionally, they are warm and friendly. Their decision making process is somewhat slow, due to wanting input from others. When stressed they tend to acquiesce.

Living with Shadows

I'm a woman in my 40's and finally feeling that I know who I am and why I am, I would like to share the shadows from my life. Having got here fairly intact and along the way found the ability to take a step back and see things more clearly it is my hope that perhaps by blogging I may help others through their own dark places.
