When working with leaders to help them become better connected, there are four principal domains in which we work. Each one of these is – quite naturally – connected to the others.
Four domains that may, at first glance, appear to be independent, but in fact influence one another profoundly. Push here and something happens over there. They are the component parts of a unified whole.
We live in the age of disruption,where apparently left-field, unexpected solutions to problems we thought we had licked can creep up on big, established market leaders, to become noisy, irritating challengers.
To the outmanoeuvred, to the sluggish establishment, the struggle is knowing how to be different and how to change. It’s as if the innovators rewrote the rules of their sector and didn’t tell anyone. It’s like their upstart competitors really did uncover the secrets of alchemy or worked out how to speed up evolution.
This is a day of learning for your team, with the Myers Briggs Type Indicator providing the framework. MBTI can be a very valuable way to explore personality and the way it affects relationships. On a team discovery day, we’ll look at the personality types of the individuals in the team, and identify whether the team itself has a type and how that type is perceived outside the team.
We use MBTI as a team tool to help each team member understand the others’ personalities and to build trust and understanding.
The day will help improve relationships and understanding in the team, leading to better communication and working practice. Team members will return to the workplace with a common tool that they can continue to use with each other. It will also lead to impact beyond the team, with increased levels of understanding and influence with key stakeholders.
