Introduction to MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator)
Time: 10:30-15:30 (lunch provided)
Place: Pears Hub
Open session: limited to 20 participants
Why do some people leave everything until the last minute whilst others complete tasks days before the deadline? Why do some people prefer diagrams and others words? How do you manage or report to a colleague whose style is completely different to your own?
Each of us brings our different personalities to the workplace and these influence the way we communicate and work together, sometimes leading to personality conflicts and misunderstandings. We have found that the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) can be a helpful tool for understanding these differences and making the most of the strengths that different personality types bring to an organisation.
Based on the theory of psychologist Carl Jung, the MBTI assessment helps individuals self-determine their preferred ways of perceiving and processing information. Developing an understanding of these preferences and learning to communicate them can help team members manage their time more effectively, deal with stress, resolve problems and make better collective team decisions. MBTI can also help you improve your communication with others, motivate colleagues and create an organisational culture where all types can thrive.
This workshop is designed for those at any level of an organisation who would benefit from understanding and appreciating how differences in our personalities impact our relationships with others.
Each participant will be invited to complete an online questionnaire prior to the workshop. This will provide you with bespoke feedback about the way you prefer to function. Note that the questionnaire is completely confidential – and optional. If you choose to complete it, the only one who will see it is you (and the trainer as she needs to print it out for you).
We can reimburse travel costs for participants coming from out of London. If you would like us to do this, please request it when you book your place by emailing Rachel.
