The Myers Briggs Type Indicator was developed by Katharine Briggs and her daughter, Isobel Myers who had studied the work of Carl Jung.  They developed a questionnaire that would help people identify their personality type.  After more than 50 years research, MBTI is now the most widely used instrument for understanding normal personality differences. It is used widely for:

  • self-understanding and development
  • Career development and exploration
  • organisational development
  • team building
  • management and leadership training
  • problem solving
  • ....and more!
  •  
  • It is used across the world in more than 30 languages and over 3.5 million indicators are administered each year.
  • The questionnaire takes about 30 minutes to complete, and feedback from a qualified facilitator helps you to identify and understand your unique gifts.
  • The results help us to understand how our decision making and communication can work better, and identify our natural strengths and potential areas for growth.
  • It is a valuable tool in understanding and appreciating difference, and can be transformational in team development. 

 

As a qualified MBTI practitioner, I am able to offer individual feedback for those who would like to know their type, either as part of career progression, or leadership development.

I also provide team development based on the MBTI, which is particularly helpful in building understanding in new teams, especially around communication and decision making.
