Why do other people do the things they do?
Can you think of any area of life in which it wouldn't be a tremendous advantage to know yourself and understand others better? Consider the possibilities:
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is founded on the work of Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Jung. Jung suggested that differences in behavior are the result of the way each of us prefers to gather information, make decisions, reenergize, and order our lifestyle. In 1942, Katherine Briggs, and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers, began to design a scientifically rigorous instrument that would reliably explain and classify personality types based on Jung's theories of differences. Their interest in Jung's theories was spurred by World War II and their belief that the war was caused in part by a general misunderstanding of differences. Their hope was that the MBTI would be one way to promote the constructive understanding of differences between people.
Experts have long suggested that the beginning of leadership, management and team development is to "know oneself." Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. It is often hard to take an objective look at oneself. That's where the MBTI can help. By filling out a simple questionnaire, the MBTI reliably sorts people into categories to which they already belong. Participants often comment that hearing the feedback is "like looking in a mirror." The MBTI puts words to what people have often suspected about themselves but lacked the language to describe.
During the training, participants will gain insight into how to bring the best out in themselves and in others. They will build their interpersonal skills and discover answers to many important questions that will help them greatly enhance the success of the team.
Participants also explore what to do before, during and after team meetings to make them more valuable.
This training program was awesome.
It was one of the best training sessions I have ever been through.
During this program I learned a lot about myself and also my coworkers.
It will help me interact better with all of them.
This program really opened my eyes to what makes up my team.
This program was a good investment and very informative.
