Do you have the right people to succeed?
Are your people motivated and excited to go to work every day?
Do you have a good team or do you have a great team?
Business moves fast – very fast – and employees will either be your organisation’s greatest asset or its greatest liability. Couple that with the fact that in today’s challenging economy, most teams are expected to perform at a much higher level with fewer and fewer resources at their disposal. Some teams will rise up to meet these challenges, while others will cave in under the pressure.
The best – and truly great teams – effectively understand the diversity of talents they all have and use each others’ talents day in day out. They put people in the right role and use them in the right way, so that the team and the business win. They value diversity and view conflict as a positive force that leads to innovation. They communicate clearly and reach out to each other without hidden agendas or ulterior motives. They seek out ways to help each other succeed as opposed to opportunistically waiting for the right moment to bring someone down.

What is Myers Briggs (MBTI)?
Designed to measure psychological preferences of how people perceive the world and make decisions, these preferences were proposed by Carl Gustav Jung and first published in 1921. Now utilised by most Fortune 100 companies worldwide, it is the most widely used personality assessment in the world, with an estimated 2 million participants every year.
Myers Briggs is more than just training. It can provide, not only hugely helpful insight into how individuals perform and are viewed within the organisation, but can also be an extremely effective tool to help managers to lead, inspire and communicate more effectively and develop teams to grow and function as high performing groups.
After more than 60 years of research and development, the current Myers Briggs assessment aims to understand normal personality differences, explaining basic patterns in human functioning and is used for a wide variety of purposes including;
- Self-understanding and development
- Communication within organisational teams
- Organisational development
- Management and leadership training
- Team building and trust
- Problem solving and decision making
Within MBTI, there are no good or bad personalities, no right or wrong, we just behave and think differently due to our own inborn tendencies to use our minds in different ways. As we get older and interact with different people either in our personal or professional lives, we of course adapt our behaviours to accomplish what we need to do. But it is not necessarily our “natural” preference.
Myers Briggs in Action
During a Myers Briggs training and development day, we will carry out psychometric ‘profiling’ of all individuals and help the whole team understand more about themselves and their colleagues. The day is very interactive and we use role-plays, discussions and practical sessions so participants can understand how their personality types play out in real life situations and how everyone can use one another’s strengths for the betterment of the whole team.
