Stress doesn’t have to be distressing

Workplace stress is always a hot topic in the HR press, and even more so currently as organisations push to achieve more with reduced resources and budget. Is the media’s portrayal of stress as bad correct – or is stress something we can learn to manage and even harness for positive benefit? Although most of us know what stress feels like, many of us fail to identify the best coping strategies for the productive management of the challenges that we face. And if we have trouble managing our own stress, how can we best support colleagues who experience stress differently?

Penny and John will step through a well-established dynamic model of the stress process and explain how you can build individual and organisational resilience, not only to avoid stress turning into distress, but also to understand when it can be a positive, motivating force.

  • Leveraging the power of the MBTI framework in coaching Dec 7 2016 2:00 pm UTC 45 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 of the individual, how that individual relates to others, and their effectiveness in an organisational setting. Showcasing colourful new imagery, Gil Parsons, Lead Consultant, and Betsy Kendall, COO and Head of Professional Services, will lead you through several case studies, looking at the impact of everyday stress on Myers-Briggs Type, how individuals’ behaviour changes under pressure, and why people who share three MBTI preferences may still experience challenges in relating to each other. By using images to bring out key aspects of each Type and dominant function, you will learn how to bring the MBTI framework to life, and how to make the complexities of Type Dynamics more accessible for coaching clients.

  • Emotional intelligence: is it more relevant than we think? Recorded: Jun 30 2016 32 mins
    Fiona Ferguson (L&D Manager, Tesco) and Nikhita Dost (Consultant, OPP)
    Emotional Intelligence is a concept that has attracted both popularity and criticism in the business world. A major challenge that HR, L&D and consultancy professionals face is demonstrating the effectiveness of what is considered “soft” skills training. Key questions remain: Can emotional intelligence be developed? Should it be trained? What is the impact of developing Emotional Intelligence for individuals, the organisation and customers?

    In this webcast, join Fiona Ferguson (L&D Manager, Tesco) and Nikhita Dost (Consultant, OPP) as they share insights from implementing and evaluating Emotional Intelligence training for leaders at Tesco. They will discuss links between Emotional Intelligence and MBTI theory, resilience and customer focus. Their findings suggest Emotional Intelligence training may have a wider reach than we think, helping to promote a better customer experience.
  • Everyday stress: avoiding, surviving, mastering Recorded: Apr 22 2016 47 mins
    Penny Moyle, CEO of OPP, and John Hackston, Head of Research
    We can all get stressed from time to time. Sometimes things really boil over, what MBTI users call ‘being in the Grip’, but much more often we just have to manage the everyday stresses of life.

    In this webinar, Penny Moyle, CEO of OPP, and John Hackston, Head of Research, will take you through how, when we become stressed, an over-reliance on our strengths means that we don’t perform at our best, but how an awareness of our MBTI Type will help us to avoid, survive and master the effects of stress. They will also show you how to use new imagery and resources to explain these concepts to others.

    You don’t need to be a qualified MBTI Practitioner to participate in this webinar, but it will help if you know your MBTI Type preference.

  • Delivering tailor-made MBTI development Recorded: May 8 2015 43 mins
    Penny Moyle and Gil Parsons
    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.
