Appreciating our differences - MBTI team events

  • Who is it for?

    These half day workshops are aimed specifically at dedicated teams and departments. 

    Booking for this workshop is via a request from a department manager.  

    Sorry - this workshop is not available to delegates on an individual basis.


    Overview

    Diversity in teams brings with it many advantages and can also be a source of frustrations too.

    The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a psychometric instrument which aim to explores people's personality behaviours linked to underlying preferences (based upon Jung’s theory of psychological types). A sharing of MBTI results can reveal differences between people that can lead to valuable learning reducing misunderstanding and miscommunication.

    Prior to the event team members will be required to complete an online questionnaire.

    In a workshop environment the team members will be taken through the 4 key dimensions of  MBTI which will be illustrated through a series of activities to enable the participants to complete their own self analysis report. They can subsequently compare this with their questionnaire report.  

    Near the end of the workshop participants will be invited to share their findings with team members with a follow on discussion relating to how these insights might be used to improve team effectiveness when back in the workplace.
