MBTI team building
Increase communication and understanding within your team
Raise team motivation and understanding with a fun MBTI Team Building Workshop, run by one of our licensed MBTI practitioners.
The MBTI Questionnaire (Myers Briggs Type Indicator) is widely used in organisations for personality type assessment. In particular, it helps people to become more appreciative and tolerant of other preferred styles of communication and patterns of behaviour.
The questionnaire works by identifying a range of Myers Briggs personality types, which are invaluable for understanding team dynamics and relationships.
Consequently, to help you build a more effective team, we facilitate a half-day, or full-day MBTI workshop, run by a licensed MBTI practitioner. This ‘draws out’ the different Myers Briggs personality types for you, providing valuable team insights. To save time, each delegate completes the MBTI questionnaire before the event.
Our Myers Briggs workshops help to explain each of the communication preferences from the MBTI Questionnaire in an interactive, supportive and fun way. Crucially, we help each team member to acquire insights about how they and their colleagues prefer to take in information and make decisions.
In addition, the MBTI workshop enables the team to review how well it communicates and works together, as well as identifying changes they would like to make.
In summary, the MBTI team building workshop provides each team member with:
Usually we split participants into two teams for each exercise, according to their self-assessed preference. As a result, they can confirm their assessment and observe the opposite preference with their colleagues. Finally, the facilitator conducts a review of each exercise, sharing key insights and summarising how to apply the learning to the working environment.
To support the MBTI workshop, we include:
Based upon their individual responses to the Myers Briggs Questionnaire, team members will receive a short automated report. As a result, they are then able to identify which of the sixteen personality types best describes themselves.
In addition, within the same report the team member will be able to see the level of strength of their communication preferences, as well as some initial insights into their reported MBTI type.
Principally, the Myers Briggs personality type represents a team member’s preference in four separate categories, with each category composed of opposite poles. These four categories describe key areas that combine to form the basis of an individual’s personality type, as follows:
The results of the MBTI questionnaire are for each team member. Importantly, the facilitator will only disclose these to other team members at the MBTI team building session, supported by an agreement of confidentiality.
