McQuaig Effective You!

Personal effectiveness training using the McQuaig Self-Development Survey™ to help you understand and make the most of your natural strengths and be the most Effective You!



Who Needs This ?

Our personal effectiveness course is designed for individuals who want to be more effective at work and build on their natural strengths. You will learn what people love about you and what might drive them crazy. Self-awareness is the key to a more Effective You!

Participants master their strengths using the McQuaig Self-Development Survey™, which is backed by decades of research. Everyone leaves with a detailed action plan to encourage improved job performance, increase job satisfaction, and achieve greater success.

Previous participants tell us they took what they learnt in our personal effectiveness course and were able to apply it immediately. Understanding themselves better changed their relationships, both personally and professionally. They also tell us they feel more successful and confident in the decisions they make. They are able to trust whatever happens, because they personally know where their strengths and limitations are.

How Do I Book?

We deliver all our courses in-house at the time and place of your choice, throughout the world. An in-house training course is a great way for your people to learn together. Clients tell us that skills are more likely to be used post-course if a team has attended the same course.

What You Will Learn

An “Effective You!” course will help you understand your natural strengths and how make the most of them. This personal effectiveness training uses the McQuaig Self-Development Survey™.

Before your personal effectiveness training even starts, you will complete a self-assessment survey. This survey will pinpoint your natural temperament and produce an easy-to-read report.

You will focus on yourself in this personal effectiveness course and use this report throughout the course as a personalised guide to discover what makes you great. Once we have identified your natural strengths, you will receive a set of actions you can take to maximise those strengths. Your expert trainer will help you understand what it all means and lead you step by step through your personal effectiveness training.

You will spend time in practical activities and will receive a workbook to support your learning. A McQuaig Certified Trainer will guide you, and you will receive post-course email tips.

Just the fact that you are looking at personal effectiveness training separates you from the masses. This is the type of action successful people take in order to be successful. From our training you will take away practical actions with loads of hints and tips on how to build on what makes you great. When you focus on your strengths, you can realise your true potential.

Background to Effective You!

Effective You! was developed based on the findings of Jack H. McQuaig, Founder of The McQuaig Institute. Jack said:

“In working with many successful people over the years, I’ve learned that understanding yourself is more important to career success than education, intelligence or charisma. Successful people know who they are and consciously play to their strengths. The good news is that we can all learn to do this.”

Way back in 1966, Jack identified four factor models of personality and he applied them in businesses with a huge amount of success. He created the McQuaig Word Survey®, which is the basis of the McQuaig Self-Development Survey™.

To me, success means effectiveness in the world, that I am able to carry my ideas and values into the world – that I am able to change it in positive ways.
