MBTI TEAM ASSESSMENT WORKSHOP

Communication is the lifeblood of any organization. The biggest challenge most teams face revolve around relationships. Knowing your personality type is a powerful self-awareness tool for you to understand your personal preferences in a positive way and appreciate the preferences of others that are different from yours. This assessment will introduce you to The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), the most widely used behavioral assessment in the world for helping people understand themselves. The MBTI is a framework and a process that can help you confirm how you like to do things, your strengths and lifestyle.

Participants in these assessments will reflect on their own psychological type and begin integrating that knowledge into their everyday responsibilities in practical ways. You will gain a better understanding as to why others communicate as they do and learn to adjust your own preferences to “speak their language” and build better work relationships.

Half or Full Day workshops are available, OBJECTIVES may include:

1.     Understanding your personality type preferences and the uses of the MBTI.

2.     Learning how you prefer to become energized, take in information and make decisions etc.

3.     Increasing your behavioral versatility to be more effective in a wide range of situations.

4.     Learning to appreciate, value, and work with all of the sixteen personality types around you.

5.     Obtaining skills on how to work through conflict that arises from type differences.

6.     Mapping your team: Identifying team strengths and blindspots.

7.     Team action planning: Strategies for improving team communications.

8.     You as a leader: How Type influences your management style.
