Myers Briggs and FIRO-B -- Understanding Behavior to Meet Your Goals

After more than 60 years of development, the current Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Assessment is the most widely used instrument for understanding normal personality differences. This instrument is a self-report questionnaire designed to help you identify your unique gifts. Knowing this information will enhance your understanding of yourself, your motivations, your natural strengths, and your potential areas for growth. It will also help you appreciate those who differ from you.

Registration closes Friday, May 10 at 3:00pm.

The tool is used for a wide variety of purposes including the following:
• Self-understanding and development
• Career development and exploration
• Organization development
• Team building
• Management and leadership training
• Problem solving
• Relationship counseling
• Education and curriculum development
• Academic counseling
• Diversity and multicultural training

During this half-day workshop, we will also be looking at the Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation-Behavior (FIRO-B) Assessment. This tool was originally developed to predict how military personnel would work together in groups. It has now become a widely used assessment to help those who take it understand interpersonal behavior. Many people find this tool useful in management and leadership development; team building; and career and family, and relationship counseling. It also has been used in research on educational administration, work group compatibility, interpersonal dynamics in groups, and criminal justice administration.

Assessment Information
Prior to attending this half-day workshop, you will be asked to complete two different assessments. Once you have registered for the program, the information for both of these will be sent to you. Neither of the assessments is very lengthy, and should take no more than 30 minutes each. We ask that you have these assessments completed prior to the workshop.
Detailed instructions will be provided to you upon registration.
