Scaling UP! H2O

117 The One With Temperament Expert, Kathleen Edelman

Nation! I am so excited to bring this show to you. As I mentioned in last week’s episode, learning about the four temperaments is hand’s down one of the most useful things I did this year. It has helped ALL of my relationships. You are probably are asking yourself: What is a Temperament? This show will answer that for you.    

My guest is Temperament expert, Kathleen Edelman. Her mission is to help people use words that build others up. She says that the words we use when we speak are our gift to others. That statement should make us want to think about our words more carefully! Kathleen explains what the four temperaments are by defining the needs, manipulation techniques, strengths, and weaknesses. This information is invaluable as we related to others.  

Have you ever had a conversation with someone, and the person takes your meaning in a different way than what you meant to say? I have found that this used to happen to me all the time. After working with Kathleen, I have learned techniques on how to communicate best with others. Kathleen understands that different people respond to words differently. She has mastered how to identify what words to use and gives us the tools to do the same thing.  


Please join me in welcoming Kathleen to Scaling UP! H20.

    1. Hi Adam,

      Here it is. “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29”
