This workshop uses Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) as a basis to explore individual MBTI preferences, helping us to identify and understand our preferred ways of working, and adapting to the preferences of those around us. Recognising our own preferences, and the preferences of those around us is key to understanding how to lead authentically and consciously. You do not need to have attended a MBTI workshop previously.

This workshop will consist of discussion, exercises and self-reflection, to assist you in:

  • gaining personal insight into your MBTI preferences
  • understanding other's preferences and enabling you to adjust your style as appropriate
  • understanding the different types within your team.

The outcome

At the end of this session you will be able to:

  • understand and describe the 4 “dichotomies” of MBTI
  • understand and use MBTI Type “Grip” (high stress behaviours and responses)
  • describe your own preferences
  • identify ways to use differences constructively
  • identify the different strengths of others through their preferences
  • identify which preferences that you might need to flex when working with others


Prior to attending this workshop, you will need to complete a Myers Briggs Type Indicator Assessment. You will be provided with an Interpretive Report, which will be used throughout the workshop. 

Target Audience

Any individual who wants to:

  • expand their MBTI understanding
  • increase awareness of individual preferences
  • improve his/her awareness of others’ preferences and how to use differences constructively
  • understand preferences which need to be flexed.
