Course summary

Undertake the world’s leading tool for measuring personality type. 

The Myers-Briggs® personality assessment is a simple yet highly versatile tool which 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.

This powerful assessment provides the foundation for a deep understanding of personal motivations and group interactions. It can be applied to multiple personal and business issues and is based on the work of Swiss psychologist, Carl Jung. The practical programme features an accessible framework which explains the eight core personality preferences and 16 type combinations. Widely recognised and respected, it is used globally in many different languages and cultures. It has a proven effectiveness and track-record, with over two million assessments administered annually. The theoretical framework of the MBTI inventory, offers a common language for understanding and describing the interpersonal differences that shape who we are as individuals.

During the workshop, participants will receive a description of their best-fit or preferred style with a detailed explanation about what characteristics are frequently associated with that type. This can be used by individuals and teams to help determine and understand work choices, how and why relationships operate the way they do, preferred communication style and differences in terms of problem solving. In addition, it can be used within teams and organisations to understand and solve organisational challenges. All programmes run by a qualified MBTI® practitioner.
