Working Styles and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

How to understand and more effectively work with different styles.

“LSA made MBTI easy and practical.  Learning different communication and working styles allowed our team to break through some critical barriers and get more aligned. Thank you for such an interactive and helpful session”
Noelle Van Vlierbergen | Director Human Resources | Sony

Description:

This interactive two-day workshop is based on the world’s most widely used psychological assessment tool, the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Keirsey’s concepts of Temperament.

The Myers-Briggs Program focuses on an objective way to understand human differences.  The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful while interacting at work. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent based in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment.

Your results from the MBTI® instrument help you become aware of your personality preferences so that you can diagnose, adapt and communicate more effectively with your co-workers.

Being aware of your personal preferences and the preferences of others allows you to better understand and work with those around you to achieve your goals.  A preference is what you like. You may like, or prefer, being outdoors over indoors. You may prefer reading over watching TV. This doe not mean that you won’t sometimes choose, or be pressured to choose, being inside and watching TV. But in general, you will prefer to choose being outside or reading.

The course is specifically designed to help participants understand their Working Style, with its inherent strengths and challenges. They also learn strategies for recognizing the preferences of others and develop practical skills for improving their interpersonal interactions.

Target Audience:

This course is suitable for managers, supervisors, and individual contributors.
