The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a nonjudgmental instrument that helps individuals and teams understand themselves and others in a way that is value-oriented versus evaluative. The preferences refer to gathering energy or processing thoughts, being detail-oriented versus big-picture-focused in gathering information, being objective or subjective in decision-making and being structured or go-with-the-flow in orienting one’s lifestyle. Prior to this course, learners will complete a 95-question instrument and identify a four-letter MBTI type. Learners will receive a personalized report based on their responses, which they will then review and debrief in the instructor-led session.
- Increase self-awareness about type and recognize the value of differences
- Recognize the impact of MBTI type on leadership behaviors
- Identify verbal and non-verbal cues to each of the eight MBTI preferences
- Identify ways to flex type styles to improve interactions with others
- Identify specific actions to improve their own leadership and team effectiveness
Why This Matters:
Leadership success begins with self-awareness. A leader’s MBTI results provide insights on the reasons behind behavior, preferences, and tendencies. With this information, leaders can leverage strengths, address challenges, and build better working relationships.
