The MBTI® is the world’s most widely used personality indicator. It is a personality questionnaire used to measure and describe people’s preferences and classify people into 16 broad personality Types. It explains how differences between people can be observed and described. It therefore gives you:
- very clear and obvious advice on building better interpersonal relationships;
- building an effective team dynamic; and
- developing your leadership style.
At the completion of the workshop, you will be able to:
- identify your own MBTI® type
- be aware of your own strengths and manage your blind spots
- value others who have different preferences and ways of doing things
Half-day Workshop Content
Session 1: Deciding Your MBTI Type
In this session, you will discover your own MBTI “best fit” Type through the following 3 steps:
- You complete the MBTI® questionnaire to get a reported MBTI Type.
- The trainer explains to you the 4 dimensions of the MBTI:
- Extraversion / Introversion – your orientation to energy
- Sensing / Intuition – how you perceive the world
- Thinking / Feeling – how you make decisions
- Judging / Perceiving – your orientation to the world
- You make an MBTI self-estimate. This helps you understand the instrument and gives you the chance to assess your MBTI type based on your own self-awareness.
Session 2: Exploring Personality Differences
You explore the differences between the different Types in a series of “splitting exercises”. These help you to see how you differ from your colleagues, and how to build better relationships across the differences.
As you review the exercise you will appreciate the differences in:
- thinking through issues versus talking out issues together
- noting detail versus taking a big picture view
- having a logical versus a relational approach in decision making
- being curious and flexible versus being organised and structured
Through the exercise, you will learn that you have a set of strengths which you bring to life and work. These identify your personality – the way you come across to other people. You will also learn that other people have different strengths, and different ways of doing things. You will also discuss practical ways to work with these differences to achieve greater synergy.
