You and your team can benefit from Myers Briggs Type Indicator®
Are you a team player? Most posts advertised require that you are ‘a team player’, and where they don’t make this requirement, it is often because it is assumed that you will work well in a team.
But, in reality, it is not always that easy. There are some people you get on well with and others you don’t. Some people just seem to approach life from a completely different direction, and yet most of us interpret others from our own perspective.
A good first step
There is a lot more to being an effective team than good working relationships between the team members, but the relationships can be a good place to start.
What is the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®?
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® is a simple, yet highly versatile, tool that helps businesses address a wider range of issues than any other instrument. It has helped millions of people around the world to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and how they interact with others, hitting at the heart of who they are and inspiring them to significantly increase their effectiveness. The MBTI tool delivers reliable personality insights, helping to drive tangible improvements to working relationships and productivity for individuals, teams and whole organisations.
How I deliver the insights from the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® for Teams
There are 3 stages to my delivery of the MBTI® for teams
- Individuals complete a short questionnaire on line prior to the workshop
- The team comes together for a half-day workshop to understand the MBTI, what it can tell you and what it can’t, to find out what their individual preferences are and, ideally, to share their preferences with each other. We do this through a number of simple and often light-hearted activities with short video presentations.
- Either the same day or on a future day the team meets again with the facilitator for a further half day to consider how they can make best use of what they now understand. This is when the theory turns into practice, new ways of working can be planned, ideas mooted and the team can start working much better to their strengths and be more understanding of their own and each others weaknesses and how to work with or overcome them.
Individuals wanting to know their Myers-Briggs Type can also benefit. In this case a minimum of 2 hours is required for the explanation and it is advisable to have a follow up coaching session to ensure what has been discovered is not lost.
