MBTI Team Development

Team Building & Development Using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a tool for developing self-understanding and understanding of others. The MBTI provides a useful measure of personality by looking at eight personality preferences that all people use at different times.

In general, the MBTI functions as a tool that can help people in work groups or teams:

  • Understand themselves and their behaviors
  • Learn to work more effectively with others
  • Appreciate others so as to make constructive use of individual differences
  • See that approaching problems in different ways can be healthy and productive for an organization.

Using the Myers-Briggs as a base, Turknett conducts a ½-day to 2-day workshop in which the team participates in various activities. Participants in the workshop will:

  • Gain an understanding of the MBTI model
  • Gain an understanding of their own MBTI preference and be able to use it to:
    • Understand areas of strength and potential areas for growth
    • Use their preferences more effectively in the workplace
  • Gain an understanding of the MBTI preferences of others and use that knowledge to:
    • Communicate and work more effectively with customers and coworkers
    • Learn to appreciate the styles of others
    • Build a more effective team
    • Create an action plan for using knowledge gained
