Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® and Its Application
 
In a lively and entertaining manner, this module lets the participants experience the inherent differences between individuals in the ways they interact with others, take in information, and make decisions.  This information can be used to evaluate the impact these differences have on a team and why they need others' strengths.  This is also an excellent workshop to prepare leaders, managers and employees to deal with the increased diversity in the workplace.
 
Sharon W. Lovoy is a certified administrator of this indicator and one of the largest providers of this training in the U.S.
 
Participants will receive training to:
 
  •  Use the MBTI® results as a tool to determine how to better utilize the strengths of self and others to benefit the team
  •  Use the MBTI® results as a way to resolve differences among a team
  •  Increase awareness, accountability, and action--key tools for stronger emotional maturity in the workplace.

 Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®, Phase II:
 
  Application to Teams
 
This module takes the concepts used in the first Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® class (a prerequisite) and applies them to the team.  In the first session, the participants concentrate on themselves. In this phase, the focus is on the team and the impact of personalities in the team setting. 
 
NOTE: Each participant is furnished with two (or more, depending on the request of the client) detailed "Side-by-Side" printouts that compare his/her type with that of selected team members/leader. These printouts provide critical information on sources of blind spots, conflicts, and strengths.
 
Participants will receive training to:
 
  •  Identify strengths and weaknesses of the team and how the team might compensate for the blind spots. 
  •  Solve problems and facilitate the change.
  •  Discover what tasks appeal to certain types as well as what tasks tend to be avoided resulting in procrastination issues. 
  •  Study the impact of stress and how it brings out the worst in themselves and how team members can help each other cope with stress. 
  •  Communicate to the team leader and other team members how they can be more effective in working together.  
     
Course Requirements:
 
  •  PREREQUISITE:  Each person must have attended MBTI® training prior to this class.
  •  Length of Course: 5 hours.
  •  Number of participants: 24 is the maximum allowed for optimum participation. An intact team is preferred or individuals can attend with 2 other colleagues 
  •  Materials: A master handout is furnished to the client with specific directions for photocopying. Two "Side-by-Side" printouts are furnished to each participant. Additionally, MBTI® Team booklets are purchased by Lovoy’s Team Works, Inc. and billed to the client.  One per participant is required.  Materials are reasonably priced. Please contact us for cost.  Markers and 2 nametags are needed for each participant.
  •  Equipment: LCD projector is required for the class.

Creating and Maintaining Healthy Teams
 
Participants on teams learn that groups go through several stages before becoming fully productive and that the tasks of the leader are different at each stage.  Participants learn that the groups change with the addition and subtraction of individuals.  They discover the importance of consensus decision-making and team member involvement, and how decisions ultimately impact teams. The saying, “None of us is as good as all of us,” is certainly true.  However, the saying, “A chain is only as good as its' weakest link” is also a truism.
 
Participants will receive training to:
 
  •  Acknowledge that awareness, accountability, and actions are the keys to changing behavior.
  •  Recognize the difference between a group of individuals and a team
  •  Identify stages that groups go through in order to become productive work teams 
  •  Determine what language and actions promote "victimhood"
  •  Identify what types of actions can be devastating to team trust
  •  Establish what actions should be taken that promote intolerance for unhealthy team behavior
     
Course Requirements:
 
  •  Length of Course: 4-6 hours, depending on the client's specified outcomes. 
  •  Materials: A master handout is furnished to the client with specific directions for photocopying. 
  •  Equipment: LCD projector is required for the class.
