PeopleMap: Train-the-Trainer Certification

 We at Pinnacle find the PeopleMap Personality Inventory extremely helpful for staff team development, leadership coaching, and lay leadership team working. We appreciate the MBTI, DISC, and Emotional Intelligence Inventory, yet find that the Peoplemap is readily accessible and applicable for teams of any kind.

Mark Tidsworth is able to train others to be Certified Peoplemap Trainers, giving you access to the many Peoplemap training programs. The next Train-The-Trainer opportunity is:

June 11-12, Columbia, SC

Sometimes mental paradigms and cognitive understanding of what’s happening lags on-the-ground experience. We post-modern Christ-followers realize that something has changed. Our experience tells us so. Our intuition and feelings tell us so. Yet our understanding of what’s happening in congregations, and to congregations, often is the last to learn. The purpose of SHIFT is to help our understanding catch up with our experience. We need input, insights, information, and examples to make sense of the changes around us. SHIFT provides this kind of learning for clergy, church staff, and lay persons. SHIFT can be engaged the following Formats:

  • One Day Learning Experience
  • Two-Three Day Workshop Learning Experience
  • Weekend Retreat
  • Three Learning Modules Spread Over Time
