Myer Briggs Type Indicator Workshop

This workshop is a great opportunity to improve the performance of your team and is delivered by an Occupational Psychologist. The Myer-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) has helped millions of people worldwide gain insights about themselves and how they interact with others. It assists in improving how teams communicate, learn and work. It provides a powerful framework for building better relationships, driving positive change, harnessing innovation and achieving excellence.

The Myers-Briggs assessment is the world’s most trusted personality assessment because it is:

  • easy to grasp, insightful and thought provoking;
  • reliable and valid, backed by ongoing global research and development investment; and
  • highly flexible in terms of administration options and applications.

Applications include:

  • increasing personal understanding and self-awareness;
  • learning to understanding and appreciate how and why others differ from us and effectively utilising those differences;
  • team development - helps improve communication among team members, identify team strengths and weaknesses and create action plans for improved performance;
  • leadership development - deepens leaders’ understanding of their personality type and the types of those they are leading to help them manage better, give more meaningful feedback and improve individual and team performance;
  • conflict management improves skills in identifying sources of conflict and intervening early to prevent under-performance, disruption and disengagement;
  • stress management - builds resilience, increases productivity, and offers strategies for identifying and managing stress triggers;
  • career transition and planning - helps guide individuals on career choice, development, and management.
