Typical Myers-Briggs based Team Workshop Overview
A Myers-Briggs team workshop is applicable to all levels of teams up to and including board level.
A typical workshop looks at improving communication, enhancing team problem solving, valuing diversity and providing a non-judgemental way to approach team issues. The workshop will enable each team member to understand their own type and how this impacts the team. Each Myers-Briggs team workshop is bespoke and tailored to your requirements. Each participant will take the official Myers-Briggs questionnaire online prior to the workshop (this takes about 30 minutes) and get the results at the workshop.
The Myers-Briggs workshops are fun, highly interactive and always very well received. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is non-judgemental and there are ‘good day’ and ‘less-good day’ behaviours for all types and so, a Myers-Briggs team workshop provides a great forum for getting to know and understand team members.
After a recent workshop we received the following testimonial: “Thank you for your contribution to our team building programme. The team really enjoyed and valued your session” HR Manager PoloRalphLauren, London. (For more testimonials see ‘What People Say’)
Completion of this Myers-Briggs team workshop will enable participants with:
- Greater understanding of their own operating style and how this may affect their performance at work.
- Recognition of and appreciation for differences with others thus reducing conflict, enabling change and enhancing team interaction.
- Recognition of individual contributions to the team thus enhancing creativity and the problem solving ability of the team.
- Ability to see things from other perspectives, valuing diversity and so, enabling teamwork to flourish.
- A framework for better communication both internally within the team and externally, leading to greater productivity.
- A framework of influencing tools to ensure the organisation’s message is successfully articulated and sales messages are well defined.
Experience shows that teams that have been through the Myers-Briggs team workshop are more productive afterwards. Research has also shown that self awareness and awareness of others is key for high performance.

So, What is the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)?
Have you ever wondered why you seem to relate better to some people than others? Why some of your colleagues seem to be on your wavelength whereas others have very different thought processes and styles? Have you ever asked yourself “Why don’t they get it?” when an idea, conclusion or plan of action seems obvious to you?
The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the most widely used instrument for understanding personality differences – differences that can be the source of much misunderstanding and miscommunication between people. (Over 2 million MBTI personality questionnaires are completed each year worldwide). The MBTI, based on over fifty years of research, is extremely effective in enabling you to identify your strengths and provides in a practical way a better understanding of yourself, your motivations and potential areas for growth. Equally it will also enable you to understand and appreciate those who differ from you. It is not a test as there is no measure of ability, it measures preferences. It is therefore a proven personality profiling tool for building understanding in individuals, teams and organisations and thus enabling better performance. It provides feedback on four dimensions of personality that have been proven in over 4000 research studies.
