What is a packtype?
A packtype is a set of characteristics

For example:
This packtype is
associated with being creative, taking risks, coming up with new ideas.
Good listeners, caring, considerate of other feeling, good at relating to people.
There are 8 packtypes
Guard Dogs:
creativity, challenge, risk taking, ideas.
analysis, facts, certainty, evaluation, measurement.
direction, results, decision making, steering the team.
delivery, action, doing, being hands-on.
people, pastoral care, relationships, listening.
communication, performing, sharing ideas, networking.
principles, process, trust building, continuous improvement.
organisation, planning for success.
How to play.
Each card has an adjective on...

e.g. factual, energetic, outgoing.

You pick the 12 cards that best describe you.
On the reverse of each adjective there is a packtype.

e.g. factual ---- POINTER
energetic ---- TERRIER
outgoing ---- MASTIFF
The 12 cards you choose will tell you what mix of characteristics you have and what your dominant packtype is.
This is not a personality test.

It is about behaviours. And you will find that you get different outcomes in different scenarios.
How will it improve the school?
In short...
It is a tool to help you to improve your understanding of yourself and other people - your 'Emotional Intelligence'.
