Myers-Briggs Type Indicator – Personality Styles

A workshop for groups, teams, or leaders

Have you ever noticed how you just get along better with some people than others? 

Are you looking for ways to strengthen your relationships?

Would you like to bring value to your team efforts?

Do you want to reduce your stress (without physically harming anyone)?

Using the MBTI – Myers-Briggs Type Indicator™ - participants will learn why we each think, behave and live the way we do. And, you’ll learn how to figure out what makes other people tick as well!   

  • Utilize the MBTI to gain a better understanding of your personality style
  • Identify the styles of coworkers, family, friends
  • Improve relationships and communicate more effectively

Understanding how people think and act differently is important to running a highly productive business/organization. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator™ (MBTI) provides individuals with information and a way of thinking about differences that encourages them to honor and work with these differences. The goal of the MBTI is to provide positive descriptions of each preference (leadership dimension) and each type and to encourage individuals to understand and see the inherent value in each preference and each type. These differences within and among individuals have profound implications for managers and leaders.

During the training, individuals will explore their personal preferences and type, as well as seek ways to value and make positive use of individual differences as they provide leadership within their business/organizations, community, and family. The participants will: develop a deeper understanding of their leadership dimension results, understand and appreciate individual differences, examine common leadership styles, explore decision-making issues, understand the needs and work styles of others and clarify how type can contribute to teamwork.
