Do you want to help your leaders and employees be the best that they can be by focusing on their strengths, motivators, and interests? Would you like to be able to tap into their core competencies and talents for better results?

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) is a proven, widely accepted and globally-used personality preference instrument based on Carl Jung's theories of personality type. The assessment is a self-reporting, on-line questionnaire designed to make Jung's theory of psychological types understandable and useful in everyday life. MBTI® results describe valuable differences between normal, healthy people - differences that can be the source of much misunderstanding, miscommunication, and conflict.
Made accessible to the general public through the research of a mother-daughter team, Katharine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers, it is a powerful and versatile instrument. The assessment helps an individual increase self-awareness for improved performance, form more positive and productive relationships, value the differences that can deliver innovation, and create a common, non-threatening language that focuses on behavior, not the person. Understanding MBTI is self-affirming and enhances cooperation and productivity.

The instrument identifies natural preferences (innate tendencies) that are not fully utilized or have been suppressed, but can be accessed and developed to bring about a more fully functioning self. There may also be facets of the personality that a person would like to modify so that he or she does not fall into the same bad patterns time and time again. The elegance of type theory is that it introduces a dynamic system that acknowledges and encourages an individual to change as a part of healthy type development (even as one’s basic type theoretically does not change). There is emerging evidence that the environment and deliberate intention can bring about these changes. This is good news for organizations and its employees, especially when positive and trusting relationships are critical for success, behavioral changes are needed to stay competitive, improved communication is key to organizational efficiency, and tapping employee strengths is the primary way to raise the performance of the organization.
More than three million MBTI® assessments are administered annually in the United States alone. We can help you identify the individual and group opportunities that can move your organization to the next level!
