This workshop will help you to understand the functions of your Personality Type, enabling you to identify your preferences and blindspots and learn how to use them positively. You will gain a deeper understanding of what resilience is and using MBTI® as a base, you will identify your individual energisers and stressors and your likely reactions and remedies to those stressors. 

What we will do 

This workshop consists of discussion, exercises and self-reflection, to assist you in managing stress and building a high level of workplace resilience by:

  • understanding what resilience is; 
  • a deeper understanding of stress though the advanced use of the Myers Briggs Type Instrument (MBTI®); and 
  • developing an individual resilience plan.  


Prior to attending this workshop, you will need to complete a MBTI® assessment. You will be provided with an interpretive report, which will be used throughout the workshop. You do not need to have attended a MBTI® workshop previously, but if you have, part of the workshop will serve as a refresher, however the bulk of the MBTI® work will be dealing with MBTI®'s tools on stress.


This workshop is suitable for any individual who wants to:

  • expand their MBTI understanding;
  • increase awareness of stress behaviours and reactions;
  • improve his/her response to stress
  • understand the blindspots and stress behaviours of colleagues.
