Type Training for Reducing Employee Stress!


02A15HS9“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” Aristotle

As an accredited Type trainer (Step I & II) I facilitate interactive and engaging workshops on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) or using the more modern version of the tool, The Majors.

Type is a highly regarded tool that is used to gain insights into personal preferences and increase self awarness (EQ).  It explores individual preferences around the four functions:

  • Extraversion – Introversion
  • Sensing – iNtuition
  • Thinking – Feeling
  • Judging – Perceiving

The Type tools go deeper than perhaps some have experienced in prior training where a simple explanation of Type was given, before being presented with a four letter Type report i.e ESTJ. When rich training and discussion (both group and one on one) is provided Type helps individuals and teams explore their personal preferences around the four functions. It also looks at different Interaction Styles, the Four Temperament Groups, leadership styles, causes for stress and how to reduce this and much more.  Step II training of Type is valuable for those who have done basic Type training before and have a reasonable level of self awareness, however, are looking to develop this to the next level.

Based on the original work of Swiss Psychiatrist Carl Jung, Type It has stood the test of time and is utilised across the world for a variety of purposes including career development, team building, leadership development and stress management.
