MBTI: Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Workshop
Our experiential approach to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator uses the personal insights gained from this classic personality type indicator coupled with eye-opening and engaging activities to yield powerful new insights at the individual and team levels.
To collaborate effectively -especially under pressure- people need to understand each other better and appreciate personal differences. Converting these differences from a source of team conflict to a source of team strength dramatically increases the productivity of the team and the bottom line.
Though the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator has applications for individuals, Adventure Associates specializes in workshops for teams. The workshop curriculum integrates the individual preference information with that of the team as a whole.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator benefits teams by:
- Identifying areas of strength and possible areas of weakness
- Clarifying team behavior
- Helping to match specific task assignments according to preferences
- Supplying a framework in which team members can understand and better handle conflict
- Helping individuals understand how different perspectives and methods can lead to useful and effective problem solving
- Maximizing a team's diversity in order to reach more useful and insightful conclusions
By integrating exciting and interactive challenges into the Myers-Briggs workshop, Adventure Associates creates opportunities for teams to experience type in action - generating greater understanding and new insights into this valuable team development tool.
We offer the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator in 4-hour and 7-hour workshops. During the half-day workshop, we instruct the group about the four dichotic pairings and the sixteen type preferences. Participants experience “personality in action” through a few interactive challenges and discussions, learn their individual type preferences, and begin to craft strategies for leveraging areas of strength and compensating for areas for development.
Time allowing, we highly recommend our clients participate in the full-day workshop. Your group will not only benefit from the individual breakthroughs of the half-day workshop, but have much more time to address “team type” in-depth and create even more strategies and awareness around specific workplace situations.
