“WHO AM I?”
All MBTI Assessments, Coaching and interactive Workshops are also offered online through Zoom videoconferencing.
We are certified MBTI Master Practitioners with Applied Psychology Masters Degrees and have administered the MBTI Step I and II Assessments to over 1,000 individuals in our MBTI group workshops and individual coaching.
I’ve used the Myers-Briggs Types for twenty years and yours is the best, most practical approach I’ve come across, among many others.
What is the Myers-Briggs Type Instrument (MBTI)?
The MBTI Step I Instrument was developed by Isabel Myers and Katharine Briggs as an application of Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types. This theory suggests that we have opposite preferences for:
- Gaining energy – Extraversion (E) or Introversion (I)
- Gathering or becoming aware of information – Sensing (S) or Intuition (I)
- Deciding or coming to conclusion about that information – Thinking (T) or Feeling (F)
- Dealing with the world around us Judging (J) or Perceiving (P)
We use all of these 8 preferences in daily life but to different degrees. The MBTI is not a measure of your skills or abilities. Rather it is a way to help you become aware of your preferred style and to better understand and appreciate the ways that differing styles contribute to successful organizations and teams.
Should I take the (MBTI) Step I or Step II Assessment?
MBTI Step I Assessment is most typically used with teams where the goal is for team members to better understand and how to best work with each other.
The MBTI Step II Instrument is an in-depth, personalized description of your style preferences and is more effective for individuals who want to better understand and learn how to productively utilize all their preferences. Step II results (20 Facets related to your 4-letter Type), show some of the unique ways that you express your Step I Type. For example, the 5 Facets related to Extraversion (E) or Introversion (I) are: Initiating vs Receiving, Expressive vs Contained, Gregarious vs Intimate, Active vs Reflective, and Enthusiastic vs Quiet. This further differentiates and defines the preferences and uniqueness of each Extravert and Introvert, and similarly each of the other Type preferences.
Individual Assessment and Coaching
We offer MBTI Step I and Step II Assessments and coaching to individuals wanting to further their development or explore new or encore career paths. The MBTI Step I or II Assessment is completed online by the individual and then the results are reviewed and coaching is conducted online using Zoom videoconferencing from any location. Individuals receive the MBTI Step I or Step II Report and Manual for ongoing implementation.
Whether you want to improve working relationships within an existing group or bring together a new group that needs to get to know each other quickly, we can customize a workshop for you. Everyone completes either the Step I or II Assessment online depending on the needs of the group (team building, leadership. etc). All workshops start with Module 1 and can be customized to add other modules. A half-day session would include Module 1 and one other module. A full day session would include Module 1 and two other modules. All modules include presentation and interactive, engaging group activities and Q&A on topics including communication, optimizing team strengths, conflict management, change management, stress management and individual development.
