We all have a characteristic way of approaching and interacting with the world around us. However, we are not always aware that others start from a very different place. As a result, we often find it difficult to understand or appreciate those who are quite different from us.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the world’s most popular personality test, enjoying use in workplace settings as well as family, marriage, and career counseling settings. This webinar will serve as an introduction to the instrument and the world of “Type”. Whether you know your MBTI or not, this session will deepen your understanding of your unique perspective on the world around you and the implications of interacting with others who differ.
Understanding the MBTI will provide you with a better understanding and appreciation for different types and provide you with tools for communicating more effectively and using the talents of others in team efforts. That understanding will also provide you with greater insight and acceptance of others around you, regardless of their type.
Why should you Attend:
The MBTI is world’s most-often used personality test. It can help us understand ourselves and others with whom we come into contact, both in our personal and professional lives. It serves as a useful introduction to the world of individual differences – how people see, approach and deal with the world around them in different ways.
This webinar serves as an introduction to the MBTI and the concept of “Type”. Beginning with an exploration of the four dimensions upon which the Myers-Briggs is based, we will explore the characteristics of each type and the implications for our work, family, and personal lives. Whether you know your Type or not, this session will help you better understand yourself and others.
Using the MBTI to understand how we approach the world and how others may view it differently will help us appreciate those differences and make us more effective in communicating with others, working together on teams else’s actions interfere with our own, and lowering the frustration we often experience when dealing with people who are different than us.
