TARGET AUDIENCE: All management staff from senior management to first line supervisors


Personality types affect how people think, feel and act in situations, especially in the workplace. Research has shown that leadership effectiveness can be affected by one’s personality type and self-management. Leaders who have clarity on their personality type have been shown to be more effective leaders.  This program uses the world’s foremost and most reliable Personality Instruments for leaders: the MBTI® and the FIRO-B®.  The 17-Page combined report taps into key aspects of personality and behavior in areas such as communication, problem solving, decision making, and interpersonal relations. 

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) is the best-known and most trusted personality assessment in the world with more than  6 million MBTI® Assessments  taken monthly worldwide.  It has shown reliability and validity in predicting one’s effectiveness in various areas such as relationships, work place effectiveness, career placement and leadership.

The Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation-Behavior (FIRO-B® ) has been used  around the world to unlock the mysteries of human interaction at work and in their personal life for more than 50 years. This instrument gathers critical insights into how an individual’s needs for inclusion, control, and affection can shape his or her interactions with others.
