Your Preferences Make a Difference

Event Details

Your Preferences Make a Difference

Knowing one’s preference can make a difference among family members, relative, volunteer workers and especially with a team of co-workers. One way to view preferences is by taking the Myers Briggs Personality Inventory and spend some time reviewing what ‘your 4 letters’ suggest about you. It is helpful for family members to have a sense of these preferences as they pursue various family activities. It is certainly beneficial for managers of teams to have a sense of their team member’s preferences and deploy various tasks, responsibilities and processes based on these preferences. Participants will take the Myers Briggs and bring their 4 letters to the session with an indication of the strength of their letters. Discussion will be a primary factor in this session and if it is a ‘work team’ info will be gathered prior and the various components of the team will be divided for discussion time.

Learning Objectives

Do you gather info by talking, asking questions or by listening?

When seeking information do you want all 5 senses satisfied or are you quite happy with just one being satisfied?

Are your personal belonging (closets, drawers, office files/desk) orderly or do you prefer a drop it in a pile because I know where it is?

Do you seek harmony and often accommodate others to maintain harmony or does your logic kick in and you roll with a decision with little regard for harmony?
