For MBTI Step I practitioners. The MBTI Step I assessment provides an excellent foundation for both individual and team Development Journeys. However, MBTI is sometimes criticised for being too general and broad brush, when in fact the MBTI framework has a great deal more to offer. Step II uncovers the unique individual behind each whole type, explaining differences between two people with the same four-letter type, and identifying overlaps between individuals with different overall preferences.
MBTI experts, Penny Moyle and Gil Parsons, will showcase the latest developments in MBTI Step II, showing how it can be used to build on the MBTI Step I foundation with both individuals and teams. Using case studies, they’ll guide you through Step II facets, ‘Out Of Preference’ scores, and how Step II takes personal development and coaching to another level.
This webcast will explore how to use the Emotional Judgement Inventory (EJI) to gather useful data about how ‘in tune’ with self and others a leader is likely to be and will provide some practical emotional intelligence ‘to dos’ for leaders. This will prove useful both for leaders and those who work with them in coaching or development contexts.
Principal Consultant, Alice King shares hints and tips for running engaging and dynamic type events. Drawing on her own considerable type knowledge and experience she’ll step through materials and approaches that will enable you to:
•increase the impact of your type events
•save time and create efficiency in the training room
•make core type concepts more accessible
•allow teams to quickly identify patterns in their team type
What will a ‘leader’ look like in 2050? The world is changing physically, technologically and demographically, and this will have a huge impact on HR and in particular leadership. John Hackston, Head of Research and Development at OPP, will describe these trends, the implications for future leaders, and how the MBTI can help.
Experienced type practitioners know that there is always more to learn about psychological type, new ways to enhance training and facilitation skills, better tools for communication, different applications to explore. In this session, participants will explore Jane Kise’s top ten lessons learned from 20 years of experience. Participants will have the chance to reflect on “next steps” in deepening their knowledge and practice, explore new exercises they might use with groups, and consider how the type community can work together to ensure that the use of type has a lasting impact on our clients, customers, and selves.
Jane Kise, Ed.D. is an executive coach, consultant, and author of over 20 books including Intentional Leadership, Introduction to Type and Coaching and Using the MBTI Tool in Organisations.

The 16PF questionnaire provides powerful insights into personality and behaviour which improve the accuracy of your hiring decisions. Join Ben Vernazza, Senior Consultant at OPP, to find out how to get the most out of 16PF within selection by mapping the 16PF onto the key competencies for the role and assessing the likely fit of your candidates to reduce risk when recruiting.
We don’t all experience time in the same way, and one factor is psychological type. A knowledge of this and type dynamics in particular will help us navigate our way through time. Based on recent research and experiential work, and building on a theme presented by them at the BAPT conference at Greenwich in May 2014, Ingrid Manning, Head of Group Learning, and John Hackston, Head of R&D at OPP, show how our perceiving function holds the key to understanding how we perceive time.
The 16PF psychometric assessment is a powerful personality questionnaire, trusted by both business and psychologists. While qualification in the instrument is the most effective way to realise its benefits, OPP have developed several applications designed specifically to allow those without qualifications to benefit from the 16PF; these span career guidance, recruitment and self-awareness. Join Rob Bailey, Principal Consultant in OPP’s R&D department, to find out how.
We are all individuals, and our personality follows a unique path through time and space; but our Type can provide signposts to help us develop over time. John Hackston, head of research and development at OPP, will illustrate how we can use timelines to navigate our way through life, and to help others do so. He will also draw on research to show how insights we can gain from MBTI feedback relate to age trends seen in other personality measures.
We can’t always give people MBTI feedback face to face, so feedback via telephone or video conferencing can provide a useful alternative. Join Pauline Siddons, Learning Implementation and Development Manager at OPP, for a 30 minute webcast in which she will use her many years experience as an MBTI practitioner to provide advice on the best way to approach remote feedback.
