Myers Briggs Type Indicator
BUSINESS TRAINING COURSES
Our Myers Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) training workshops provide a clear insight into the preferred behaviours of your team and its members.
Our MBTI® workshops can be delivered as an invaluable standalone team development programme, or linked with a number of experiential activities to perfectly combine putting theory into practice.
Understanding and working at MBTI® is by design delivered via a theoretical workshop. However, the outstanding benefit of completing MBTI® with Quest is that we can link it to a broad range of experiential sessions and as part of the same programme or event.
For example experiential cooking sessions work extremely well at bringing MBTI® to life. They can be facilitated and observed closely, and the observations can be usefully included in post session self-led reviews.
This theory-combined-with-experiential approach, is a hugely powerful way of getting the absolute best from MBTI®, and can help to ensure that the knowledge gained is immediately used and built upon.
By the end of the session, all delegates will have…
Established their MBTI type and used this to identify their strengths and training needs
We are committed to ensuring delegates spend the maximum amount of time learning during our MBTI® programme. Delegates will therefore be asked to complete the MBTI® questionnaire online in advance before attending the training session. This has the added benefit of allowing attendees to work through the questionnaire at their own pace.
Each question asked in the questionnaire is relevant to one of the following four cognitive learning styles, and the answer provided is evaluated in terms of the particular trait it reveals about that individual.
Where delegates get their energy.
Are they energised by the external world or internally?
How delegates take in information.
Do they prefer detailed, factual information that is tried and tested or do they prefer to trust their sixth sense and focus on the future?
How delegates make decisions.
Do they make decisions based on fact and logic and objective analysis, or do they make decisions subjectively in an empathetic manner based upon their personal values?
How delegates live their life.
Do they prefer to be planned and organised or do they prefer spontaneity and to keep their options open. Do they always meet deadlines or are they likely to ‘just about / nearly’ meet their deadlines?
The four preferences above will be fully explored in relation to…
- Increasing delegates self-awareness
- Improving working relationships
- Helping to develop delegate’s leadership style
- Improving communication
- Improving delegate’s understanding of how their colleagues work
A facilitated discussion session encouraging each of the delegates to identify which of the behaviour styles they each feel are their preferred styles.
A detailed analysis of the preferences of each of the delegates highlighted from the MBTI® questionnaire, completed in advance. This is where Quest feels it is so valuable for each of the delegates to understand the outcomes and information not just from their own questionnaires but the results for each of their colleagues too. It’s also a great deal more interesting and enjoyable.
These are designed to assist the illustration of preferred styles. Specifically, what is conducted will be agreed and confirmed before the workshop; however the following are some typical examples:
The group will be divided into teams with all the Extroverts together and all the Introverts together. Each team will be asked to design a poster that illustrates where they would go and what they would do on an ideal weekend. They will then have time to work on that task before coming back together and presenting their work to their colleagues.
The group will be divided into teams of Extrovert/Sensing; Extrovert/Intuitive; Introvert/Sensing and Introvert/Intuitive and asked about their roles in change, what they bring to the process, what they need and what frustrates them. They will have time to discuss in their teams before coming back together to present their work to the rest of their colleagues.
The group will be divided into teams of Sensing/Thinking; Sensing/Feeling; Intuitive/Thinking and Intuitive/Feeling and asked to discuss what they look for when making a key purchase. They will then have time to work on that task before coming back together and presenting their work to their colleagues.
Delegate numbers will determine if the session is facilitated by one or more of Quest’s qualified MBTI® practitioners.
Quest’s MBTI® practitioners are qualified to facilitate not just MBTI®, but MBTI® Step II and MBTI® Teams, and the dynamic and effervescent manner in which they deliver will ensure that MBTI® is facilitated in such a way that all of the delegates fully understand, absorb and enjoy the session.
By the end of the session the delegates will have established their MBTI® type and identified their strengths and potential training needs and development areas as a team.
