Many people are familiar with the Myers Briggs Type Indicator - it is one of the best known and most widely used tools in the world, with millions of people using the Indicator since its first publication. It can be used to encourage better working relationships in teams, improve communication strategies and increate self-awareness.
Taking the full MBTI inventory and receiving feedback can help you identify your unique gifts. The information enhances your understanding of yourself, your motivations, your natural strengths and potential areas for growth. It will help you appreciate people who differ from you and can be used for a wide variety of purposes:
• Self-understanding and development
• Organisation development
• Team building
• Management and leadership training
Slightly less well-known is the MBTI Step II process which looks at how behaviour is expressed and how these preferences manifest themselves. It examines what sits behind the eight letters that make up the MBTI Step I tool and how, even if we are the same “ type” as someone else, we all have different characteristics. Understanding the Step II process gives more detail on an individual’s type, but is also a great team building tool.
This session will provide an overview of the MBTI tool for participants by taking them through some of the elements of the tool, looking at the facets that form the Step II process and include practical activities for participants to explore their own MBTI type.
