shutterstock_152693459Description/Objectives:
The Myers-Briggs inventory is the most frequently used instrument in business for team building and improved communication. Literally hundreds of thousands of people have taken this inventory resulting in precise scoring norms. The instrument helps people understand and appreciate the diversity and variance in work styles. Participants learn to value and respect these differences instead of becoming frustrated by them. This serves to strengthen work groups, project teams, and individual relationships resulting in reduced stress and conflict in the workplace and greater productivity. This is not a “personality test.” Most effective for intact work groups, but fine for mixed groups.
