Typical Myers-Briggs based Team Workshop Overview

A Myers-Briggs team workshop is applicable to all levels of teams up to and including board level.

A typical workshop looks at improving communication, enhancing team problem solving, valuing diversity and providing a non-judgemental way to approach team issues. The workshop will enable each team member to understand their own type and how this impacts the team.

Each Myers-Briggs team workshop is bespoke and tailored to your requirements. Each participant will take the official Myers-Briggs questionnaire online prior to the workshop (this takes about 30 minutes). In the virtual format participants will also undertake a 30 minute pre-session e-learning module to ascertain their ‘Best Fit” Myers-Briggs Type.

Overview

The workshop can be provided at a location of your choice either in-house, off-site or virtually. We are flexible on timing and will tailor the workshop to the time available from two hours to a full day. Most clients have a half day or four hours with a break for lunch. There is also the option of further reports and a range of materials including the Type and Teams booklet.

Our Myers-Briggs workshops are fun, highly interactive and always very well received. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is non-judgemental and we stress that there are ‘good day’ and ‘less-good day’ behaviours for all types.  A Myers-Briggs team workshop from Iridium provides a great forum for getting to know and understand team members.

Thank you for your contribution to our team building programme. The team really enjoyed and valued your session.

So, What is the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)?

Have you ever wondered why you seem to relate better to some people than others? Why some of your colleagues seem to be on your wavelength whereas others have very different thought processes and styles? Have you ever asked yourself “Why don’t they get it?” when an idea, conclusion or plan of action seems obvious to you?

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the most widely used instrument for understanding personality differences – differences that can be the source of much misunderstanding and miscommunication between people.

(Over 2 million MBTI personality questionnaires are completed each year worldwide). The MBTI, based on over fifty years of research, is extremely effective in enabling you to identify your strengths and provides in a practical way a better understanding of yourself, your motivations and potential areas for growth. Equally it will also enable you to understand and appreciate those who differ from you.

It is not a test as there is no measure of ability, it measures preferences. It is therefore a proven personality profiling tool for building understanding in individuals, teams and organisations and thus enabling better performance. It provides feedback on four dimensions of personality that have been proven in over 4000 research studies.
