Team Development with the MBTI


High performing teams thrive on accountability, purpose, cohesiveness, and collaboration.  They are led by skilled managers and leaders who know how to motivate, inspire, and guide their people to success.

In this workshop, you will learn to improve communication, manage team conflict, gain an appreciation of differences, and maximise team member personality strengths using the MBTI® (Myers Briggs Type Indicator).

About the Myers Briggs Type Indicator:

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator is the world’s most widely used, researched and developed personality type indicator. It is taken by over two million people worldwide every year. 

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) is a self-report questionnaire designed to make Jung’s theory of psychological types understandable and useful in everyday life.

The results provide insights into how each person takes in information and gives it meaning, makes decisions, judgments and takes action, where we draw our source of personal energy and how we prefer to interact with the outer world.

It describes the valuable differences between everyday people, and helps you to identify your unique strengths and gifts.  This information can be used to better understand yourself and others, including motivations, strengths and potential areas of growth.

The information it provides can be used in areas including communication patterns, decision making, conflict resolution, team building, career development, time and stress management, customer relations and change management.

“Whatever the circumstances of your life, the understanding of
type can make your perceptions clearer, your judgments
sounder, and your life closer to your heart’s desire”.
Isobel Briggs -Myers
