Managing Yourself, using the Gilmore-Fraleigh Style Profile: Advanced Workshop, London

December 8, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

| Free

A workshop training day for people in church leadership

Thursday 8 December 2016, Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church, London, 9.30am-4.30pm

Want to unlock more application of the Gilmore-Fraleigh style profile?

This workshop is designed for people who have been introduced to the four “Gilmore-Fraleigh styles” during a Bridge Builders foundation course, and who can already see the style profile’s potential as a tool for self-management. The content assumes that you are at least somewhat familiar with the material produced by Friendly Press, and have gained useful insights from knowing your own style profile. Putting it another way, you have an idea about your “colours”!

What’s this workshop about?

Each of the four styles has its own set of “triggers”: things that help someone to behave constructively; things that precipitate “excess”. This is useful information. Being aware of your own triggers, and making sensible guesses about other people’s, can help you to build better relationships, and become more deeply rooted in the peace of God.

The material in Gilmore & Fraleigh’s booklet, The Friendly Style Profile for People at Work, and in Bridge Builders’ training manual for Transforming Church Conflict, can be used as the basis for  prayerful personal reflection, and for developing useful habits. It is worth re-visiting regularly, by yourself, or in conversation with a soul friend. Come on this workshop to get familiar with a framework for reflection—then go on using it.


Running from 9.30am to 4.30pm, the programme includes worship, presentation, personal reflection and group discussion.

You’ll get:

  • A refresher on basic ideas of the style profile
  • More ideas for getting the best out of others
  • A guide for understanding when your behaviour tips into “excess”
  • A chance to work on a personal case study
  • Keys for managing your own behaviour
  • Tools for mentoring others
  • Reflection on the example of Jesus
