Module Overview

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI©),  is a psychometric framework designed to rationalise psychological preferences – in how people perceive the world and make decisions.

These preferences were extrapolated by Katharine C. Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers from the typological theories proposed in (1921) by Swiss psychologist, Carl Jung.

In this 1-day personality type training course, we invite participants to complete their own personality-type questionnaire and develop an understanding of their innate preferences and how these manifest themselves in human behaviour.

The workshop specifically focuses on the key personality-type applications of self-awareness, awareness of others, team building, interpersonal communication, influence, selling & negotiation, leadership and individual development.

It features a hands-on, practical approach, that can be implemented in your daily work – to deliver widespread improvements in one’s personal and interpersonal effectiveness.
