What Will I Learn?
  • Students will learn how a person's handwriting shows the individual beliefs, fears and emotional mindsets of authorities in the workplace. In so doing, students will understand their bosses with ease and tremendous insight. For instance, if a boss is particularly sensitive to criticism about their work product or service, wouldn't it be great to know that BEFORE you offer a counter-opinion to their project? Or, if the person supervising a team is emotionally reserved and you are very outgoing, wouldn't it be better if you knew how to communicate with your boss in a way that brings mutual respect? These are just a few of the myriad examples of how understanding the emotional trigger points of your supervisor's personality can benefit you in avoiding the traps of getting on the wrong side of your colleagues and boss in the office.

  • There are no pre-requisites for this course except for a curiosity about what handwriting can tell you about your boss, your co-workers and yourself.


This course demonstrates the tool of handwriting analysis for detecting the negative fear and power traits of individual leaders in the workplace. Topics such as emotional temperament, personal fears attitudes and beliefs, and specific traits like temper, jealousy, resentment, lying and other counter-productive behaviors that will be shown in handwriting samples presented in screencast format. By understanding the key fears, sensitivities and psychological blocks individuals of power hold, one can learn to be aware of and overcome unhealthy situations that sabotage one’s career and personal well being. Choosing to understand and/or address healthy workplace behaviors with emotional awareness provided by the insights received in studying handwriting analysis is the objective of this course.


This is the first of three mini-lecture courses presented in screencast format whereby handwritten letter forms are demonstrated as they reveal specific character traits. Topics the instructor delivers are accomplished using screencasts of handwriting samples.  The instructor gives audio descriptions of the handwriting analysis insights along with each slide. Stories about each characteristic may also be included for better comprehension about each personality trait described and how it potentially manifests in the workplace behaviors of the supervisor or co-worker.  For this course, the instructor focuses on the negative, anxiety producing character traits of a boss that can make them be “Boss Impossible” and helps guide the student to learn the visual cues and warning signs in handwriting that can help them to avoid painful outcomes such as poor boss/employee relations, misunderstandings with team colleagues and even lost promotions.
