Applying Your Personality Type to Build Your Leadership Skills (MBTI)

Moving from recognizing and understanding to appreciating and effectively using differences is a challenge because we all have a natural bias for our own way of seeing things and making decisions. It can be hard to recognize our own biases, especially when they are reinforced by the cultural attitudes within which we live and work. 

Taking the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) inventory and receiving feedback will help you identify your unique gifts. The information enhances understanding of yourself, your motivations, your natural strengths, and your potential areas for growth. It will also help you appreciate people who differ from you. 

Understanding your MBTI is self-affirming and encourages cooperation with others.

Objectives:

  • Developing a deeper understanding of MBTI results.
  • Understanding and appreciating the value of individual differences.
  • Examining common leadership styles.
  • Understanding the needs and work styles of others.
