We each make a difference... differently
The underlying assumption behind the Spiritual Styles Assessment is that human beings are spiritual. That is, we all have a capacity for developing a felt sense of connection to people and places, even to ideas. This sense of connection allows us to engage with the world and contribute to it.
In the Assessment, we describe the currencies or tools that people use to make the world a better place, and we identify these tools in four groups:
word, emotion, symbol, action.
These four groups form a “style” which is our unique way of improving a situation or contributing to the well being of the world. We each do this differently, however! So, the questions in the Assessment, and the resulting chart, help participants better understand themselves and those around them. This becomes very helpful in fostering collaboration and reducing interpersonal conflict.
