  • HELPING RYE STUDENTS SUCCEED

    Who am I? Who are they?How can we work better together?

  • REASONS TO CONSIDER PERSONALITY TRAINING

    Have you ever had that student that asked why all the time?

    Needed to know the schedule for orientations and exactly what they would be doing for the weekend?

    Have a student that never seemed able to be serious?

    Have a host parent tell you that he/she cannot manage the personality difference between the student/parent

    Have a student that appears to struggle with the culture within the home?

    Have a committee member that does not fit in with the team?

  • BENEFITS OF COLORS PERSONALITY INVENTORY

    It provides a common language Based off of Myers Briggs; easier to understand

    "It has implications for relationships and deeper understandings of where people are coming from. It shows that you can both be correct; you can start to look at a person in a different light. Kashiwa

    Allows RYE personnel to work better together/positive interactions

    Explore dynamics with students, creates better relationships with Rotarians and host families.

  • BENEFITS CONTINUED

    Enhanced Communication Skills

    Form Successful Relationships

    Reduces Stress in the teen (b/c of increased understanding of self and others)

    Easy to understand/assimilate the information and apply it to current relationships Four Types to remember instead of 16 with Myers Briggs

    Plus, its fun to do! Teens (and adults) love to explore who they are!

  • TRUE COLORS

    Don Lowry created the metaphor, True Colors, to translate complicated personality and learning theory into practical information we can all understand and use. He has developed an easy and entertaining way to understand ourselves and others.

    Each person is a blend or spectrum of the four colors personality types.

    For students, the purpose is to assist them in identifying their personality style, and the strengths and weaknesses associated with each color, as well as a method of improving inter-personal relationships with others, particularly host families (by building satisfying relationships).

  • USES OF PERSONALITY INVENTORIES

    Inbound parent orientation

    Counselor & LC trainings

    RYE district or club committee

    Beyond the world of RYE Use in your club to further communication and successful implementation of projects

  • PART II

    WHY THE EMPHASIS ON USING PERSONALITY TRAINING WITH TEENS?

  • TEEN BRAIN DEVELOPMENTAL UNDERSTANDING

    Brain research has shown that the brain continues to grow until early 20s.

    The Frontal cortex is the last part of the brain to fully develop.

    The Frontal Cortex is responsible for decision making, control of purposeful behavior, consciousness and emotions.

  • TEEN BRAIN AND EMOTIONAL KNOWLEDGE, NOT WHAT YOU THINK

  • WHY TEENS NEED MORE TRAINING

    Teens and adults used different parts of their brains to process what they were feeling.

    The teens mostly used the amygdala, a small almond shaped region that guides instinctual or "gut" reactions.

    Adults rely on the frontal cortex, which governs reason and planning.

    As the teens got older, the center of activity shifted more toward the frontal cortex and away from the cruder response of the amygdala.

    (Reactions, rather than rational thought, come more from the amygdala,

    deep in the brain, than the frontal cortex)

  • DECISION MAKING IN THE BRAINS OF TEENS

    Teens, it seems, are less willing than adults to work to uncover all the available information, and more likely to just go with the flow.

    Teens are just better at handling uncertainty than their older counterparts.

    Implications for RYE: They may have a greater resiliency to the small issues that arise, but if there are larger issues/decisions to be made, they may be unable to cope with the emotions and decisions they are faced with on exchange. That is where we step in to help.

  • PROCESS OF IMPLEMENTATION AT OUTBOUND ORIENTATION

    Prepare at least two hours (or more) for the basic implementation of the inventory and discussion of results.

    Materials Inventory, handouts, talking points for presenter.

    Be prepared to have fun during this activity, joke, laugh and share. You get to learn as much about your students as they do about themselves. Its a great jumping off point with individual students to talk about concerns you may have regarding their year abroad.

    Utilize Rotex to drive home major points at the end with in-depth discussion of host families and building relationships after the structured activity.

  • Implementation of Activity:

    Taking the Inventory & Processing the Results

  • THE FOUR COLORS.

    First color:

    It is your Brightest & most dominant of personality traits; you operate in this color

    -This color is most likely the attributes you demonstrate as your natural self (happens automatically, like eating w/ dominant hand)

    Second color:

    is very significant and can have a major influence over 1st. It may be shining as brightly as your first color.

  • Third Color: May or may not recognize some of these characteristics within

    your personality style.

    Fourth color: This is significant because these characteristics are the least

    natural to you. -You may admire them in others or they may cause the most

    irritation or conflict that you have with others. -This is because they are the least natural for you, and

    chances are, the least understood and appreciated.
