  • What’s your conflict style?
    What’s your conflict style?
    John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP with Helen Rayner, Lead Consultant Recorded: Aug 23 2018 32 mins
    All of us have experienced conflict at some point, at home, at work, maybe at school or elsewhere – and usually it is seen as a bad thing, something that is disruptive when it comes to the workplace. Yet some people find conflict exciting, energising, something that clears the air. We all have different approaches to conflict, and if we understood these, if we know how we usually react, we can flex our conflict style and achieve better outcomes. And maybe we can help others to do so too. John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP, discusses OPP’s research into conflict and introduces the TKI (Thomas Kilmann Conflict Mode Indicator) and shows how it can be used to create positive outcomes from conflict.
  • The power of Introversion (and how to use it)
    The power of Introversion (and how to use it)
    John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP with Helen Rayner, Lead Consultant Recorded: Jul 26 2018 33 mins
    Around half the population have a preference for Introversion, and yet Introverts are routinely misunderstood, misrepresented and excluded; less than a third of managers are Introverts, for example. In this webcast, John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP, will go through the stereotypes about Introverts, explain what Introversion actually is – and show how in neglecting the power of Introversion, organisations are missing out on a valuable resource. He will also reveal how all of us, even Extraverts, have an Introverted side – and how understanding and harnessing this can pay dividends.

    GDPR - staying on the right side of the regulation
    Betsy Kendall, Data Protection Officer and VP of Global Programs, OPP and Petra Merne, Director, Global Marketing, OPP Recorded: May 24 2018 59 mins
    MBTI and other business psychology practitioners hold a lot of information on their clients, much of it of a sensitive nature addressing issues from performance data to aspects of personality profiles, and therefore are disproportionately affected by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This will not be a legalistic presentation but practical session with time for Q&A to provide an appreciation of how it could affect our professional lives.

  • Understanding entrepreneurs using MBTI type
    Understanding entrepreneurs using MBTI type
    John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership, OPP Recorded: Apr 19 2017 45 mins
    Entrepreneurs contribute significantly to the world economy; the new businesses they create can drive innovation and will often result in the formation of new jobs. Yet almost 60% of UK businesses will fail within 5 years. New research from OPP shows the strengths, and possible blind spots, that people of each type will typically have when operating as entrepreneurs. If entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs are aware of these, it can give them a head start.

    John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP, will present the results of the research, showing how MBTI type relates to your entrepreneurial orientation, and sharing tools for you to work out just how entrepreneurial your own (or your client’s) organisation is. He will also illustrate the likely strengths of each type as an entrepreneur – and things that they should watch out for.

    Decisions, confidence and MBTI Type: breaking through the glass ceiling
    Ceri Boycott, Consultant, and John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership, OPP Recorded: Feb 2 2017 30 mins
    Women form half of the UK population, yet less than 10% of executive directors in our top 100 companies are female. In this webcast, John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP, together with Consultant Ceri Boycott, will draw on data from over 600,000 MBTI assessments to show how gender differences in the way we make decisions play a part in creating this imbalance, and how different levels of self-confidence (and over-confidence) between men and women can make things even worse. But it’s not all bad news; they will also show how a knowledge of MBTI Type can help improve the situation both for individuals and for organisations.

    Gil Parsons, Lead Consultant, and Betsy Kendall, COO and Head of Professional Services Recorded: Dec 7 2016 41 mins
    Coaching is one of the key areas where MBTI insights make a real difference, providing a deep understanding not only of the individual but how they relate to others. This webcast explores how an understanding of the MBTI framework helps individuals resolve challenges they may have in relationships with other individuals.

    Gil Parsons, Lead Consultant, and Betsy Kendall, COO and Head of Professional Services share a range of ways the MBTI framework decodes relationship issues, including why people who have most MBTI preferences in common may experience difficulties relating to each other. This webcast also showcases some of OPP’s free-to-download images which make deeper levels of MBTI theory easier to utilise in coaching sessions.
