The Centaur model is a sophisticated view of personality and can assist a person in assessing their own personality type and the personality types of their colleagues or stakeholders. Interpersonal blocks often arise when two people don’t share the same view of a situation. Each perceives a different perspective. This often results in the belief that other people “don’t get it”. The Centaur model helps a person become aware of their own world view and understand their innate view of themselves, others and the wider world. Each personality type has particular strengths and weaknesses. Centaur can illuminate how our strengths and weakness are often linked and represent different sides of the same coin.

- Communication style
- Style of contact with others and in groups
- Resilience to stress
