Decisions, confidence and MBTI Type: breaking through the glass ceiling

Presented by

Ceri Boycott, Consultant, and John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership, OPP

About this talk

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.
