Leveraging Your Personality in the Workplace: Understanding Your Myers-Briggs Core Type

Posted in: Alumni Career Services- Nov 09, 2014 Comments Off on Leveraging Your Personality in the Workplace: Understanding Your Myers-Briggs Core Type

Online Webinar
Thursday, November 20, 2014, 12:30 – 1:30pm

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. Your MBTI Personality "Type” says a great deal about the kinds of contributions you will naturally make in the workplace and how you will relate with your colleagues.

Join Executive and Career Transition Coach Kathy McConnell (B’86) to understand your MBTI assessment and how you can use it to your advantage in the workplace. Kathy will review:

• A brief introduction to the MBTI and explanation of the eight preferences (E-I, S-N, T-F, J-P).
• A more in-depth discussion of the two middle preference pairs – the core part of who you are and the secondary part that supports that function. The four core personality types are: ST (Stabilizers), SF (Harmonizers), NF (Catalysts) and NT (Visionaries).
• General themes for how each of these four types of individuals uses their strengths and talents for advancing themselves professionally and building relationships.
• A process to help participants plan to make greater use of their own personality preferences to increase the frequency with which they make a difference.

Please take the Myers Briggs assessment prior to the webinar so that you are prepared to discuss your results.
