Understand Others Icon

It is repeatedly stated that no man/woman is an island. That means leaders must effectively engage, collaborate, influence and manage people of different cultures, styles and personalities. Being self aware of your own style is the starting point. Learning about others and their styles is key to effective decision making and teamwork. Assessments are a core competence of all TPG consultants and coaches. We will greatly expand your knowledge and appreciation of others.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Preferences Workshop

Effective communication is the universally important ingredient in working productively with others.

The biggest challenge in the workplace is to effectively influence others, feel heard by others and successfully reduce conflict. Knowing your personality type is a powerful skill for you to understand your personal preferences in a positive way and appreciate the preferences of others that are different from yours. This seminar will introduce you to The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), the most widely used behavioral assessment in the world for helping people understand themselves. The MBTI is a framework and a process that can help you confirm how you like to do things, your strengths and lifestyle. In this program, participants will reflect on their own psychological type and begin integrating that knowledge into their everyday life. You will gain a better understanding as to why others communicate as they do and learn to adjust your own preferences to “speak their language” and build better work relationships.
