Myers-Briggs team building
Personality types affect the functioning of teams. A team that works well together is not a chance event. When team members understand their motivating styles and that of others, they are likely to be more open to different perspectives and methods, which leads to more effective communication and problem-solving. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator identifies valuable differences between people, differences that can be the source of much misunderstanding and miscommunication.
Becoming aware of this information enhances understanding of yourself, your motivations and natural strengths, as well as areas for potential growth. It will help teams appreciate each other’s strengths and encourage cooperation. The Myers Briggs Type Indicator has been effectively used for a wide variety of purposes such as organizational development, team building, relationship counseling, problem solving and multicultural training.
