MBTI Team Building ProgramOn September 7, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
Hi I’m Steve Ockerbloom.
And I’m Roy Charette. Today we’re here to talk about the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) which focuses on how people use
judgment and perception in making decisions. MBTI is a tool for enhancing workplace
communication and performance and is led by a facilitator who from the get-go explains that there’s a clear
understanding and appreciation for the differences in all of us, and that there is no right style. The Myers-Briggs takes a look at four
different dichotomies, or preferences, as a whole. We’re just going to do a quick overview of those four preferences. The first one takes a look at Energy Orientation: this is the difference between extroverted and introverted. Now probably not the extroverted and introverted ways that you think of from a textbook point of view,
but much more around how do people gain energy. Do they get it by being around other people,
as would be the case with extroverted? Or do they gain energy by being by themselves,
more the introverted side? The second one takes a look at how
people take in information. The difference between sensing:
which is all about taking things in from the five senses. What does it look like? What does it sound like? What does it smell like? And intuition: which is what does it
remind them of? This is much more around big picture thinking. The third one revolves around how people make decisions. The difference between thinking versus feeling. Thinking is all about what’s logical. What are the facts? The feeling side takes a look at the emotions behind things. And then finally there is orientation to the outside world. The difference between judging:
which is about policies, plans, procedures. Or much more around perception,
which looks at the possibilities. Incorporated throughout this workshop are facilitator led interactive examples and discussions. The focus of which is personal growth and workplace application. The great thing about this workshop as a whole is that your employees will go away from the workshop having a much better appreciation of others and their personality differences, as well as a better appreciation about how people handle change, and how they make decisions a little bit different. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Workshop:
a great workshop for your employees.
