Know yourself as a leader and explore your leadership advantage.
This intensive 2-day workshop will help you assess your leadership style and form a plan for self-empowerment as a leader, using the MBTITM tool, a widely administered personality inventory used by 89 of the Fortune 100 companies.
To be able to develop others, leaders need first to know themselves.
Leaders need to be clear about their strengths and the effectiveness of practices they use in working with others. The MBTI tool will help you gain insight into the way you communicate, make decisions and solve problems, but also the way you can work with other people as a facilitator instead of a commander.
Self-empowerment also means honing your interpersonal competence, commonly referred to as emotional intelligence. This workshop will also help you discover how aware you are—or not—of emotions in the workplace, and how you can adapt your behavior when leading others for mutual benefit.
This workshop is ideal for experienced open-minded managers and leaders who wish to assess and re-think their leadership practices.
This workshop is highly interactive; you will be asked to contribute with questions and real-life situations in order to:
- Develop the habit of self-reflection using the MBTI tool to examine how you absorb information, communicate with others, make decisions and manage daily affairs. identify your blind spots, stress-inducing behaviors and learning preferences
- Fully appreciate the value of differences as a core component of organizational success
- Discover new strategies to exploit and manage the value of differences to form powerful teams
In this workshop you will use the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) for self-reflection. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) instrument is a questionnaire designed to make personality preferences useful in everyday life. Knowing our type preferences help us understand normal differences in the way people think, communicate, and interact—differences that can be the source of much misunderstanding, miscommunication and conflict.
The MBTI tool: The MBTI instrument has been used for more than 50 years to establish greater understanding between individuals and teams. MBTI is widely used for:
- Improving teamwork
- Coaching and developing others
- Improving communication
- Enhancing decision-making
- Resolving conflicts
- Understanding personal styles to maximize effective use of human resources
- Determining the team’s and/or organization’s type
You will complete an authorized MBTI online questionnaire one week prior to the program. You will assess your communication, conflict resolution and decision making preferences.
The first day we cover the MBTI background and fully explain the MBTI type theory. You will then receive your individual interpretive reports and gain a step-by-step understanding of the information you were provided as well as how it can best be used for self-development.
The second day uses discussions and interactive exercises to help you understand type differences and see how your own type affects communication, problem solving and leadership development preferences. In particular, we will use the the lens of MBIT to examine these leadership areas:
- Problem Solving
- Leadership Development
Further on, we will refer to key leadership concepts and trends and use specific tools for problem solving and conflict management.
