Her humour was hilarious and so unexpected and fit everywhere it was used. She knew her topic expertly and kept it lively and very interesting throughout two pleasurable days, with lots of practical ideas."

Our approach to Myers-Briggs® training goes beyond a surface use of the MBTI assessment, i.e. considering only the four letters representing type and a few predicted behaviours that can be gleaned by reading a good book on the MBTI. Our advanced training has equipped us to deliver corporate workshops that produce powerful insights into the dynamics of teams and entire organizations. We explore the complexities of type by using novel experiential activities, bringing the effectiveness of ROPES (Reality Oriented Personal Experiences) to your indoor setting to provide direct experiences of the impact of type on your teams and to help individuals see how type affects teamwork. Our workshops use a balanced approach of theory and practice.
- The MBTI Assessment is completed online, at your convenience. During the workshop you will receive a comprehensive, written report.
- After the workshop, you will also receive the digital copy of your report to help you remember your type for life.
- Workshop materials go way beyond one booklet —participants walk away with a comprehensive handbook and several useful "Type" booklets that deepen the learning.
- Nothing is "off the shelf." Each workshop is customized to the client's particular challenges and needs.
- Workshops are fast-paced, highly interactive, intellectually engaging, and fun.
- Intact teams receive a Team Type Analysis, with personalized recommendations for improving team effectiveness.
We offer a number of Myers-Briggs® workshops as well as learning events at off-site retreats. Below are two examples:
- Team Building and Myers-Briggs®
- Understand Yourself and Others: An Introductory Myers-Briggs® Workshop
This workshop helps individuals understand their MBTI® profile and the relationship of that profile to their contributions and effectiveness as a team member. It is a powerful tool for enhancing team work and helping team members explore and resolve interpersonal conflicts by understanding stylistic differences and their impact on others. Because the MBTI is a positive tool of discovery, the workshop results in a sprit of appreciation for each others' differences.
For intact teams, we analyze the distribution of types in the team and provide a personalized TEAM TYPE ANALYSIS, that includes practical tips and strategies for improving communication and effectiveness.

"The course was very thorough, well organized, humorous and grounded in research. I learned a lot about how team members' personality types affect interpersonal relationships. Learned how I can develop myself to be a more effective leader without compromising personal style or values. So much information was also provided in the form of take-home booklets that I can refer back to when the need occurs."
