mbtiMYERS-BRIGGS TYPE INDICATOR® (MBTI®)
TRAINING PROGRAMS

WHAT IS THE MBTI®?

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® is an internationally used and respected instrument for understanding normal personality differences based on individual preferences. 

WHY LEARN ABOUT THE MBTI?

  • Better understand yourself and others

  • Appreciate personality differences

  • Develop complementary relationships

  • Improve communication

  • Reduce conflict 

WHY PARTICIPATE IN MBTI TRAINING?

The MBTI is much more than a simple test.  Isabel Briggs Myers and Katharine Cook Briggs originally developed the instrument based on the work of psychologist Carl Jung. The concepts presented in analyzing test results have deep psychological origins and implications.  Without expert interpretation, these sensitive test results may be misunderstood.

The presenter in CMC’s training programs is a qualified MBTI practitioner.  By working with an expert, participants gain deep understanding of the theory. The presenter is available to answer sensitive questions that inevitably arise from the test and scoring.  This comprehensive presentation helps prevent misunderstandings or misinterpretations of the test results.

CMC provides each participant with a personal MBTI Report that describes the individual's type and tendencies.  Each report includes detailed information about the individual's unique personality based on the strength of his or her scores.

CMC customizes programs for Workshop attendees and provides individual interpretation sessions. CMC helps participants develop an understanding of the basic Myers-Briggs types for individuals through brief presentations, interactive exercises and discussion that reflect issues and needs specific to the participants. The program provides individuals with valuable insights into their communication styles, conflict styles, and decision-making patterns. All information is presented in a positive, constructive manner.

CMC customizes trainings to meet the needs of the participants.   MBTI training programs are especially helpful for:

  • Developing self understanding

  • Developing organizations

  • Teambuilding

  • Strengthening relationships

  • Finding and following a spiritual path

  • Making career decisions

  • Learning about opportunities for personal growth and development.
