It is always useful to add tools to your business skills toolkit and that’s precisely what I did last month when I set off for Boston, Massachusetts to become a Certified Practitioner of Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) I & II.
For some time now I’ve been wanting to expand my so called ‘tool kit’ and the MBTI seemed like the perfect compliment to my existing skills and knowledge and believe it or not it was cheaper to fly to the U S of A than to study the same qualification here in Blighty.
So it was with a spring in my step and just a little trepidation about being classroom bound for 4 days that I set off from Manchester to complete my mission.
In a nutshell, the Myers Briggs MBTI assessment tool is a questionnaire used to identify our personal preferences centred around basic mental processes and relates to information gathering, decision making and the way in which we interact with the world in general.
As you might expect, this is precisely the sort of thing that ‘floats my boat’ and I am particularly interested in using this new tool to help clients establish and strengthen teams, in leadership and management programmes and effective communication strategies. All very exciting stuff.
They say that self-discovery is the path to enlightenment and I absolutely agree with that sentiment. For me, one of the great things is that the Myers Briggs MBTI instrument can be used in companies of all sizes and sectors and is supported by data that highlights the ways in which to overcome potential hurdles. And that’s why I like it.
If you’d like to know more about Myers Briggs MBTI I & II then do get in touch. I could talk for hours (or five minutes if you prefer) on my newly acquired skills and how they can help you and your business.
