Myers Briggs Type Indicator
The Myers-Briggs is a personality profiling tool based on Carl Jung’s theory on behaviour. Developed in the 1940s by Katherine Briggs and Isabel Myers, it has very wide application from organisations (leadership development, team building) to life in general (personal growth, learning, relationships)
In essence, understanding your MBTI preference can help you and your organisation:
Maximise your natural preferences and use them to your advantage, while you find strategies to manage your non-preferences.
Reduce misunderstandings and work out a better way to get your message across.
Understand why you do the things you do and how that impacts on how you relate to others.
Get real, tangible results when you can understand how your preferences can impact on your own and your team's performance.
Understanding MBTI profiles and preferences will help you become a more effective manager of people. It helps you understand the different ways that people process information, are motivated and and how they make decisions.
It helps teams understand that differences are usually not personal, just a different way of perceiving things and can be used to help different personality types meet each other halfway.
MBTI workshops are very effective for enhancing team communication and cohesiveness, and empowers everyone participating in the process.
