One of the most widely used and validated assessment tools, the MBTI identifies four basic preferences—how and where you get your energy, what you pay attention to when gathering information, what system you use in making decisions and how you go about getting things done. Individuals complete the MBTI prior to the workshop. Certified practitioners of the tool, administer and de-brief the assessment for individuals and groups, focusing on building awareness of one’s preferred communication style, identifying the strengths of that style and practicing leadership strategies by using the strengths of that style. Understanding that others you work with have different “types,” enables better communication, more effective management of others and better results.

The SocialStyles instrument measures one’s communication patterns. In this workshop, participants take a Self-Perception Questionnaire and score the results, learning their preference in one of four social styles: Driving, Expressive, Amiable and Analytical. Individuals also take a Versatility Self-Perception Questionnaire to learn how versatile they are in flexing their style in interpersonal relationships. The facilitator, trained in this instrument, will lead the group in lively, interactive exercises which develop understanding of the results, what the tool measures and how to apply the tool to improving workplace relationships.
