Leadership and Management utilising MBTI

Introduction

The MBTI provides a positive and constructive way of understanding and valuing differences between people. It is one of the most widely used psychological instruments globally, with over 50 years research behind it.  It captures fundamental differences between people by identifying individual preferences and values. It then focuses on valuing those differences, and gives us a clear way of understanding them and working together.

Self-awareness is fundamental to good leadership.  An understanding of the impact that one’s personal style has on people’s motivation and commitment is essential.  This workshop is for managers at any level who want to become more effective leaders. We’ll use the MBTI to help assess your strengths and development needs, your preferred style of problem solving and also how your style relates to other’s styles, particularly those that are different from your own.
