The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator as a means to build Greater Team Effort

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is considered the world's most popular personality test. The main reason for its popularity is the empathetic and comprehensive nature it takes. Many organizations, as well as important social areas such as family, marriage, and career counseling continue to deploy it for the in-depth perspective it offers the assessor in understanding the assessee.

Generally, when we assess others; we fail to take the unique situation that led them to taking a decision into consideration. This situation could be different to the one we may have been placed in. The experiences they gained there may have shaped their thinking. The failure to understand this often leads us into a problem in understanding or appreciating those who are quite different from us. The MBTI method helps explain this issue in a broader perspective.

Using MBTI to understand others

TrainHR, a very popular provider of professional trainings for the human resources industry, will offer understanding on this very crucial means of human understanding at a webinar. Harry Brull, who is President, Laurdan Associates, Inc. and Co-Founder of BCG Consulting Group, will be the speaker at this session, where he will offer thorough understanding of the implications of interacting with others who differ. Please visit  TrainHR  to register for this webinar on MBTI.

Viewing this webinar, its entirety qualifies for a recertification credit hour that may be counted toward SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification from SHRM.
Credit is awarded based on the actual educational time spent in the program.

An understanding of “types”

An understanding of the MBTI, which will equip them with a better understanding and appreciation for diverse types; will be imparted at this webinar. This will serve as an introduction to the instrument and the world of “Type” and deepen their understanding of the unique perspective on the world around them, irrespective of whether they have an in-depth knowledge of MBTI or not. It will help participants get an understanding of how to use the MBTI to slot a “type”.

Harry will equip the participants of this session with tools for communicating more effectively and using the talents of everyone in the team. This will enable greater empathy and understanding of others, which is at the root of the MBTI technique and will lead to higher acceptance of others around them, irrespective of their type.

With the knowledge of MBTI that Harry will offer to participants; they will be able to better understand how to approach the world and how others may view it differently. In order to make interaction and communication with others more effective, align the actions and thoughts of the other members of the team with one’s own, and lower the frustration the people often experience when dealing with people who have a personality that is different from their own; a healthy appreciation of the differences is needed. Harry will show how to inculcate this attitude.

Harry will cover the following areas at this webinar:

  • What is personality
  • The background of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
  • The four dimensions of Type
  • Extraversion vs. Introversion
  • Sensing vs. Intuiting
  • Thinking vs. Feeling
  • Judging vs. Perceiving
  • Putting it together - the 16 types
  • Type and decision - making
  • Communicating with different types.
