Assessments and Workshops

Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) There are many different personalities in the world in which we live. When we meet someone we recognize the unique characteristics, and determine how to move the relationship forward. You and I learned how to do this from our first interactions. The problem is, without assistance, it isn’t clear how to build relationships with everyone. By defining personality type, the MBTI® (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) tool builds a robust foundation for life-long personal development. It delivers a constructive, flexible and liberating context for understanding individuals. The MBTI instrument is the best known and most trusted personality assessment on the market and Forbes states “80% of Fortune 100 companies rely on these types of tests to build stronger, more effective teams and healthier organizations.” Far more than just a personality test, MBTI provides a constructive, flexible framework that can be applied to all areas of human interaction and personal development. The MBTI profile reveals how we see and interact with the world, giving insight into our motivation and the motivation of others. This provides a strong foundation for personal growth and development, underpinning enhanced personal effectiveness. Sample MBTI Report Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) The TKI has been the leader in conflict resolution assessment for more than forty years. This instrument is used as a catalyst to open discussions on difficulty issues and facilitate learning about how conflict-handling modes affect personal, group, and organizational dynamics. The tool is designed to measure a person’s behavior in conflict situations and describe behavior along two dimensions (assertiveness and cooperativeness). Sample TKI Report DISC Behavioral Assessment Like MBTI, DISC provides insight into personality and behavioral styles. It focuses on human behavior in various situations such as how an individual responses to challenges or influence others. It also looks at how an individual responds to policies and procedures. Both the MBTI and DISC are based on the work by Swiss psychiatrists Carl Gustav Jung. VIA Character Strengths Study Knowing your character strengths isn’t just interesting information.
