This seminar will present concrete ideas on how you can use knowledge of your own personality strengths and weaknesses to enhance your ability to present information that gets heard, valued and acted on.
You will complete the widely accepted Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) inventory and will receive personal guidance and coaching from an experienced and qualified instrument administrator.
You will participate in numerous exercises and discussions that will enable you to recognise the styles of others and to use that insight to build strong communication channels and team synergy.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an instrument designed to evaluate people and provide descriptive profiles of their personality types. Based on the theories of psychologist Carl Jung, it is widely used in the fields of business, education, and psychology.
MBTI was developed by Isabel Briggs Meyers and her mother, Katharine Cook Briggs, during World War II. The two women were acquainted with Jung's theories and sought to apply them to help civilians choose wartime jobs well-suited to their personality preferences. Meyers and Briggs felt that this would make people happier and more productive in their work. Consulting Psychologists, Inc. (www.cppdb.com) bought the rights to MBTI in 1975. The company estimates that it administers MBTI testing to two million people per year worldwide.
