Myers-Briggs for Effective Teams

The benefits of teamwork are undeniable; when employees work well together, the company as a whole benefits. Effective teamwork is a foundation for organizational success, but there are times when it is challenging for different personality types to work together toward a common goal.

During Myers-Briggs for Effective Teams, we will focus on:

  • Self -assessment of Personality Preferences
  • Identification and understanding of all personality preference "types"
  • Understanding how personality preference may impact our individual and team decision making style, the type of information we trust, and how we communicate
  • Identification of ways to use differences constructively in the workplace

As a team leader or team member, by understanding personality type, you'll gain insight about yourself and others to improve decision making, build trust, and communicate more effectively.
