MBTI Personality & the Team

MBTI Personality and the Team


This 2 day program is designed for up to 30 participants.  It uses the MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator) as the basis for discovering one’s own personality type and then applying this in various communicative and team situations.    Individual personalities are important to team functioning. Many of the problems associated with team development and human interaction stem directly from the interplay between the various personality types.


This program will enable participants to:

  • Gain an understanding of their own personality type and how it affects relationships, communication, problem solving, innovating, and team dynamics
  • Learn how to use their natural or acquired skills to adapt to different situations to improve understanding, teamwork and leadership.
  • Improve feedback skills
  • Interpersonal skills (trust)
