As certified Type Trainers with over 30 years collective experience, we facilitate interactive and engaging workshops using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) or the Majors™ across Australia.

Our facilitators are accredited in MBTI® Step 1 & 2 and the Majors PTi™ and Elements™. One of our facilitators is the only person in Australia certified in the recently launched, MBTI® Step 3.  Type is a highly regarded tool used to gain insights into personal preferences, ourselves and others. It has stood the test of time and is utilised across the world for a variety of professional development purposes including career development, team building, stress management, executive coaching, conflict resolution and leadership development.

Type training is one of the wonderful professional development programs that employees truly value and apply to their work life years after the training.  Click on the following link to learn more about the history of Type an its value in people development today.

TYPE WORKSHOPS MBTI-TYPE-TABLE-300x300

We offer a tailored approach to your Type training based on a range of workshop topics, with the first session focused on the introduction to Type theory. Here are a range of workshops and brief outlines on the typical content.

Introduction to Type & Communication Workshop*

This is the crucial first stage in the Type learning process. Before the workshop participants complete the MBTI® or the Majors™ profiling assessment online and then they receive their individual reports during the workshop. Every effort is made to ensure that every individual is satisfied with their results before proceeding to the second stage of the workshop, learning to apply type in the workplace.

In this workshop participants will:

  • Learn about the theory of MBTI and the 16 personality types
  • Develop a greater understanding of their individual type
  • Learn more about their natural strengths, work style preferences and areas for potential development
  • Develop an understanding of the different personality types in their team
  • Discover a language to communicate more effectively with one another
  • Leverage a new framework to develop an action plan for increasing workplace communication and strengthening workplace relationships

Participants learn from personal insights, sharing and discussing the concepts, case studies, role plays and a range of exercises to simulate realistic work life situations. In this way participants leave the workshop with an action plan to apply their Type insights in their work place.

*Typically a half day workshop. Full Day Workshops & Programs for Work Retreats can be tailored to your needs.
