Too often individuals are evaluated by their intellect alone, or worse still with assessments that measure only their perception of themselves or how they think others want them to be.
Developing people through in-depth dialogue
At Development Dialogue we believe it is crucial to get to the ‘root cause’ of an individual’s temperament by providing them with their true underlying motivations, and giving them an understanding of how that leads to their visible behaviour.
Development Dialogue is a boutique consultancy that promotes the development of individuals through better self-awareness and an understanding of their temperament and motivation.
Our aim is to improve quality of life for the individual (or team) and thus increase their satisfaction and productivity in the workplace.
If one is open for this, it is an enrichment and learning for life. I understand much better what motivates me, what my strengths and weaknesses are. It also enables to understand the same of others.

"With the help of a few deceptively simple concepts I learned to understand what type of achievements are really important to me and which less. This insight has greatly helped me in deciding what path to take."

"The program works on the deep side of the brain in combination with cognitive learning, which enables me to understand myself and others better. Having worked with the long-term development programme for more than 7 years, both my wife and my colleagues provided very positive feedbacks on improvements on my communication and management style. You must believe in the program and devote yourself during the process, and it will help you to open doors to new perspectives"

From understanding my own profile in the frame of primary social motives, the importance of matching profiles with roles in business to learning to read the motive profiles of people with whom you interact both in business and personal life it has been an invaluable experience which I would highly recommend to anyone who is searching for fulfilment in their careers and personal life.
