"Diversity doesn't need to lead to misunderstanding: Quite the opposite.
What we can learn from others can help us to expand our own horizons."

(Consults for couples as well.)


Sage Workshops also offers workshops and sessions using the

This indicator can be administered to children between the ages of 5 and 12. (Questions can be read to the younger children). The aim in sharing this instrument is to help children understand themselves, recognize their own uniqueness and facilitate improved relationships through this recognition. This can be key in home situations as well as school environments.

Family packages are available so that the parents as well as siblings can determine their 'Type'. This knowledge can be invaluable on so many levels including easing conflict through the understanding that we are all different and feeling empowered by knowing ourselves and tapping into our inherent gifts.



This is a brand new program designed to honor the unique gifts within each of us and encourage harmony within family relationships..

How often do we either discount, ignore or try to change someone who sees or experiences things differently than we do? My goal with Authentically YOU is to inspire mutual understanding while celebrating these innate strengths, giving them room to grow and flourish.

I have been a long-time consultant in the uses of both the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) as well as the Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator for Children® (MMTIC®), invaluable tools promoting understanding of self and others. I have witnessed witnessed first hand the amazing results in the communication dynamic when teams (families) recognize how just seeing things slightly differently can open up doors to understanding that have stood closed sometimes for years.

Some questions to ask yourself:

When you were growing up, did you ever feel like a square peg in a round hole among your family members?

Were you ever told you were wrong because you saw things differently?

Were you called crazy or pollyannaish for wanting to follow a certain career path?

And from a behavior perspective...

Would you prefer to read a book, surf the web or listen to music rather than leave the house for social activities?

Are your feelings easily hurt?

Are you very punctual and living with family members who are consistently late?

These are just a few of the questions that arise when we look at Type and family dynamics. As we recognize the importance of affirming rather than negating the innate strengths and direction of our children, we also learn more about our own gifts and areas where we can become blind-sided.

How does the program work:

Affordable packages are available for families. Children between 5 and 12 complete the MMTIC and parents/guardians fill out the MBTI®. After they are returned completed and the results tallied, Sage Workshops will put together a report to be discussed in confidence with the parents (and children if they are old enough to comprehend the process.) The report will offer guidance regarding steps to take to improve communication and Maureen will be available to answer any questions that may arise in response to the results.

Information Seminars:

If this is of interest, Maureen is also available to come speak with your church, school, or association to explain this process and program in more depth.

Authentically YOU - Diversity and Communication in Family Relationships

We may be from the same family, but that does not mean that we will see things in the same way, enjoy the same activities or even 'speak the same language.'  These differences may lead to misunderstanding, conflict and even anger or estrangement if not addressed. Through a series of questions and an exploration of lifestyle situations, Authentically YOU aims to inspire mutual understanding while celebrating innate strengths giving them room to grow and flourish.  Maureen Kelly has been working with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator™ for over 30 years in both the private as well as corporate arenas.

I would love to live
Like a river flows
Carried by the surprise
Of its own unfolding.

May each of us flow in rhythm to the current of our innate gifts.
