Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

HR fundamentals: the facts about psychometric instruments

The term ‘psychometric instrument’ can bewilder and confuse: sceptics view them as flaky – just a way to put people in boxes; others worry they’ll reveal intimate details they’d prefer to keep private. We think differently.

One of our resident psychologists, Rob Bailey, will guide you step-by-step through the range of instruments available, show you how to choose the right tools, and explain how your business can benefit from their use.

  • Promote a diverse and inclusive workplace by understanding personality Recorded: Aug 27 2020 48 mins
    John Hackston
    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.

    John Hackston
    John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership, has been gathering your stresses and concerns during the Coronavirus crisis, and he’ll be sharing how these relate to MBTI personality type.

    We’ll also take you through:
    - What might cause stress for different personality types in the “new normal”
    - How to spot signs of stress in your team, even without visual cues
    - Techniques to escape the “stress zone”
    - Advice for how to stay psychologically safe while working from home

    Stress and stress reactions are unavoidable at a time like this. Recognising this, accepting this and having the tools and language to discuss this is crucial, and exactly the kind of support people are telling us they are looking for.

    Who should join?
    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.

  • Virtual teams and the critical role of effective communication Recorded: Mar 27 2020 58 mins
    Rachel Cubas-Wilkinson
    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.

    Nikhita Blackburn
    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.

    Ingrid Manning
    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.

  • Add value to your practice with the MBTI® Step II™ Assessment Recorded: Sep 10 2019 61 mins
    Leanne Harris, Lead Consultant
    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.

    You will learn how to leverage the Step II assessment to add value when working with individuals and teams.
  • What’s your conflict style? Recorded: Aug 23 2018 32 mins
    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.
  • The power of Introversion (and how to use it) Recorded: Jul 26 2018 33 mins
    John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP with Helen Rayner, Lead Consultant
    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 Recorded: May 24 2018 59 mins
    Betsy Kendall, Data Protection Officer and VP of Global Programs, OPP and Petra Merne, Director, Global Marketing, OPP
    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.
  • Self-awareness: what is it and why is it important? Recorded: Nov 30 2017 46 mins
    Helen Rayner (Lead Consultant at OPP)

In this 30-minute webcast, OPP’s senior consultants will reveal the power of understanding personality difference, exploring the impact it can have on engaging individuals and driving improvements in performance.

  • Understanding entrepreneurs using MBTI type Recorded: Apr 19 2017 45 mins
    John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership, OPP
    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 Recorded: Feb 2 2017 30 mins
    Ceri Boycott, Consultant, and John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership, OPP
    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.
  • The power of the MBTI framework in relationship coaching Recorded: Dec 7 2016 41 mins
    Gil Parsons, Lead Consultant, and Betsy Kendall, COO and Head of Professional Services
    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.
