Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the single tool that can do the most to cut the enormous cost of wasted effort and miscommunication in teams. But you will only realize the power of MBTI if it is skillfully administered with a clear focus on the business outcomes the team must achieve and the business challenges it faces. Contact us at 512 -498-9780 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss our unique approach and our record of success at making MBTI a powerful tool for team success.
Poor Communication . . . the Number One Productivity Drain
What derails teams faster than anything else? Communication. Or more specifically, poor communication, slow communication, misunderstood communication, seemingly disrespectful communication, indirect communication, imprecise communication, unproductively confrontational communication—and on and on.
Suddenly, work that should be easy, becomes hard. Issues that should be straight-forward are murky. Team members are walking on eggshells.
The upshot is that trust and respect are eroded, communication is shut down, time is wasted, productivity and creativity both suffer—and nobody’s having much fun.
MBTI is the single most powerful tool to align a team, create clear communication channels, minimize costly miscommunication and reduce the background noise that saps energy from a team.
MBTI . . . a Practical Tool for Even the Most Analytical
Maybe you’re thinking MBTI is too “touchy-feely” for your team of hard-nosed analyticals and skeptics. Bring ‘em on! MBTI—when skillfully presented—resonates particularly with people who are highly analytical, because it presents a true technology for understanding human interaction.
Maybe you’re thinking, “Been there; done that. My team ‘did’ MBTI already.” There’s a world of difference between a superficial introduction to MBTI and our approach, which makes MBTI a tool that your team will use on a daily basis. Whether this is your team’s first exposure to MBTI—or whether they have experienced MBTI in the past–we will introduce concrete, practical applications that will change your team forever for the better.
Our MBTI Programs Focus on Your Business Objectives
We customize every MBTI Team Development program to the particular needs and opportunities of that team in that organization. In some cases, the opportunity might be in change management. In other cases, it’s using MBTI to enhance decision making. For other teams, the principle opportunity is in conflict management. Still other teams want to focus on how to fully engage team members.
All MBTI Team Development programs are highly interactive, engaging even the most demanding teams from start to finish. We offer a variety of formats from half- to full-day programs to an ongoing process of team development.
We administer the MBTI online, using the MBTI Step II to provide rich detail on each team member’s personality type. We also provide analyses of the team’s MBTI profile.
