Myers Briggs – Help or Hinder? – Part 1
A Help – By Jules Peck, Naked Leader Coach
Have you ever found yourself confused when someone else doesn’t ‘get ‘your idea or plan of action
when it seems so clear to you?
Have you ever wondered why we seem to relate better to some people than others?
Have you ever wondered why some colleagues understand you whereas others have very different
styles and ways of doing things?
Wonder no more.
The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI™) is the most widely used instrument for understanding personality differences – differences that can be the source of much misunderstanding and miscommunication between people. (Over 2 million MBTI personality questionnaires are completed each year worldwide). The MBTI™, based on over sixty years of research, is extremely effective in enabling you to identify your strengths and provides in a practical way a better understanding of yourself, your motivations and potential areas for growth.
Importantly, it will also enable you to understand and appreciate those who differ from you. It is a
proven personality profiling tool for building understanding in individuals, teams and organisations and
thus enabling better performance. It provides feedback on four aspects of personality that have been
proven in over 4000 research studies and over 60 years of research.
Some of the benefits you will have when you use MBTI™ include –
- Helping you and your team to better understand themselves and their personal preferences
- Helping you and your team to better understand differences in others
- Helping you and your team to use their particular TYPE to your best advantage
- Improving interpersonal communication
- Avoiding and resolving conflict
- Identifying strengths and gaps
- Developing and identifying future leaders
- Improving the overall culture in the workplace
- Encouraging the diversity of thought and creativity
- Who wouldn’t want that?
Experience shows that teams that have been through the Myers-Briggs team workshop are more productive afterwards and work even better together. Research has also shown that self-awareness and awareness of others is key for high performance.
Look out for part 2 next week
