How do you answer the question: Does using the MBTI framework make a real difference?
John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at The Myers-Briggs Company, will explore what ‘making a difference with the MBTI assessment’ means. Along with the science behind what makes the MBTI so robust, he will talk through real client stories that show it in action. John has some great research to share with you, including studies looking at return on investment and his latest findings into how understanding personality can help us through the challenges we face in 2021 and beyond.
If you have people (including yourself!) looking to understand the real, measurable value of using the MBTI framework, this is the webinar for you.
How does employee well-being impact your company’s success? Our research examined performance and well-being measures, and the correlations we found were incredible. Not only did they relate to organizational performance but also to employee retention. This session will share the results of a five-year global study on workplace well-being and reveal research-backed, high–return on investment (ROI) ways you can manage and enhance workplace well-being in the new normal.
During this webinar, we will:
- Review key findings of the workplace well-being study, including breakdown by age, gender, personality, occupation and country.
- Discuss demonstrated, measurable ties between workplace well-being and organizational performance.
- Identify research-based ways for improving well-being and specific strategies for improving workplace well-being that can be applied in any organization.
Aimed at people who are new to the MBTI, we will look at research showing that teams with a diverse mix of personalities are more effective. The catch: diverse teams can also experience more misunderstanding and conflict.
So, how do you make sure your team is effective? To start, each person should understand their strengths and how they fit in with the whole team.
In this webinar, John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at The Myers-Briggs Company, will discuss how managers, team leaders, and HR professionals can use the insights provided by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) framework to maximize team performance and build individual awareness.
He will discuss the challenges of working with, and in, a diverse team, and show how teams can:
- Identify strengths and potential challenges
- Work to minimize the effects of potential blind spots
- Improve team problem solving, communication, and conflict resolution/management
- Maximize the advantages from the similarities and differences of team members
- Develop team and individual action plans to improve overall performance
We will also show how managers and team leaders can access these insights directly, even if they have no previous knowledge of the MBTI assessment.
All leaders want to unlock their team’s full potential. However, not all leaders know that the approach to unlock potential in Introverted team members is different than for Extraverted team members.
When it comes to the world of work, diverse teams containing both Extraverts and Introverts tend to perform better than less diverse teams. However, more diversity can also mean more conflict, and Extraverts may misunderstand and underestimate their Introverted colleagues or reports. As a result, businesses are missing out on a valuable resource.
In this webinar John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at The Myers-Briggs Company, will dive into the differences between Extraversion and Introversion and will:
-Explain how team leaders can unleash the power of Introversion amongst their employees with the MBTI® framework
-Provide key insights for Extraverts and Introverts to learn to work more effectively together
-Discuss how this applies to new research around remote working and the COVID-19 pandemic as well as to traditional workplace settings
-Outline how to leverage the Extraverted side of every Introvert, and share a seven-step plan for successful teamwork
Having and fostering a “Growth Mindset” in the workplace leads to improved performance and outcomes for organizations, teams and employees. A Growth Mindset can also support development of our personality.
Join this webinar to:
- Learn the latest research showing why having Growth Mindset matters professionally and personally
- Learn how to apply a Growth Mindset and the MBTI personality framework to support individual and leadership development
- Gain tips for enhancing your personality strengths using a Growth Mindset
It is, sadly, well-known that women and minority ethnic individuals often get a raw deal in organizations. Women make up less than 10% of executive directorships in FTSE100 companies and less than 4% of executive directors in the top 150 FTSE companies describe themselves as black or minority ethnic. What’s less well-know is the way that attitudes to differences in psychological type can exacerbate this situation. In this webinar John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at The Myers-Briggs Company, will use data from 1.7 million people to show how, by undervaluing particular aspects of personality, organizations contribute to the under-representation of women and minority groups at senior levels. He will discuss how type practitioners can use this knowledge to help address these issues and outline specific actionable steps that organizations can take.

You don’t have to be MBTI qualified, in fact, we think everyone should know this, so do invite other members of your team.
If you have no idea what the MBTI framework is, there are some brilliant videos on our website to help you, although we will explain a little in the webinar.
If you’re MBTI qualified, you will have covered some of this on your training and we have some great slide decks for you to download, but this is a good refresher.
While for many virtual working from home every day is the norm, for the vast majority this is a new experience. Helen Rayner, Lead Consultant at The Myers Briggs Company has undertaken research to explore the perceptions of working in virtual, co-located and combined teams and the impact it has on teamwork.
In this webcast we will dive into that research, highlighting the five team scales that emerged, breaking down the challenges faced by virtual and office-based teams and highlight tools and techniques you can use to maintain team effectiveness.
While we adjust to virtual teams becoming the norm in many organizations, managers and senior leaders are finding it increasingly urgent to focus on the impact of virtuality on team communication.
This is not the time for team performance to slow down, and team communication is a huge part of the shift. It is a precursor to effective team processes and outcomes, and with many organizations now forced to choose virtual teams as the go-to model for getting things done, you will be on the front line of supporting how to implement effective virtual team communication strategies.
When high quality communication is present amongst dispersed or remote teams, it leads to shared understanding, smoother overall functioning, and better performance.
In this one-hour webinar, our Senior Consultant, Rachel Cubas-Wilkinson, will:
- Explore the evolving shape of teams and trends for virtual teams in organizations.
- Examine the most crucial team elements which support high-quality communication.
- Consider personal and organizational strategies that can impact and improve the effectiveness of virtual teams.
Trust is the foundation for developing positive relationships. In this webinar, we’ll see why it matters. We’ll discuss the benefits that high-trust organizations enjoy, and we’ll share the evidence which supports that claim.

- Explore different models of team effectiveness that are built on trust
- Learn how to spot the signs that trust is lacking in a team
- We’ll then introduce the MBTI framework to show:
- How the MBTI assessment helps teams build trust
- How one of our clients used it to build trust and improve team effectiveness

The always-on culture means always being connected to other people and being able to communicate anytime, anywhere across the world. However, when smartphones and the internet are available 24/7, people can struggle to “switch off”. Our latest research explores what the always-on culture means for work-life balance, stress and engagement. We will also explore the role of personality and guidelines for optimizing the always-on culture for yourself, teams and organizations.
FIRO-B® and MBTI® assessments join forces to help people build trust, develop powerful relationships and reach their greatest potential.
Creating powerful people is at the core of what you do. You want to help people build trust, develop powerful relationships, and reach their greatest potential. Self-awareness is the start of this journey through the exploration of communication and behavior styles.
Using the FIRO-B and MBTI assessments will enhance understanding of how personality type drives behavior and help individuals become more intentional in their choices and behavior by applying the results.
In this one-hour webinar, Ingrid Manning, Director of Global Practitioner Education, Quality & Content at The Myers-Briggs Company, shows how to leverage the FIRO-B and MBTI assessments to:
- Develop deeper insight into how personality, interpersonal needs, and other influences drive individual behavior
- Understand how both verbal and nonverbal communication can impact relationships, create misleading perceptions, and contribute to conflict
- Increase trust, influence, and engagement through intentional changes
- Enrich your practitioner tool kit for working with individuals and teams
In a world filled with MBTI® knockoffs dispensing a combination of four personality-related letters it can be challenging to differentiate. As MBTI practitioners, you know you offer more, so much more value than just a 4-letter type.
In this webcast Leanne Harris, Lead Consultant at The Myers-Briggs Company, discusses how you can go deeper with the MBTI Step II assessment, what sets it apart, and consequently the benefits for you and those you serve.
You will learn how to leverage the Step II assessment to add value when working with individuals and teams.
John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP with Helen Rayner, Lead Consultant
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.

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.

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.
