is a dynamic tool that builds on the foundations of temperament
theories that spans 25 centuries. It emphasizes the self-discovery process, and uses a
highly effective “edu-tainment” model to help participants understand their personality
preferences in a fun and informative environment.
is based on leading-edge research into human motivation and
behaviour and helps to explain what motivates behaviour in people with different
personalities or temperaments. This interactive human relations and communications
process enhances the basic values of self-esteem, dignity and self-worth.
The introductory workshop is 3 hours in duration and can be offered in a school setting or
to the public in a group format. Select Work Rooms can provide this service as there are
two licensed facilitators on staff who can provide the training.
Additional application workshops are also available that address topics such as team
building, communication, self esteem and career planning.

Successful completion of PACE (and this module) are not dependant on attending a
workshop. This is just one of many additional resources that
support the PACE career planning process.
Here are some other options that can be effective.
Keep track of your activities for the next couple of weeks. Write down the places you went,
things you did, people you hung out with and past times (movies, tv, videogames, sports,
etc). Review your journal at the end of a couple of weeks to discover how you enjoy
spending your time. This may give you insight into your interests and give you a starting
point for your career plan.
Consult your social network
Who knows you better than the people in your social network (friends, family, teachers and
employers)? Ask them for their perceptions of the things you like to do and suggestions of
careers that may compliment their interests. You don’t have to act on their
recommendations as you are only collecting information at this point. They may have
unique insights that you may not have considered.
If you are really stuck and can’t think of things that interest you, you may benefit from
consulting your high school guidance counsellor about doing more formalized vocational
testing and interest inventories to help find a good starting point for your career planning.
