Why do certain people thrive on ambiguity, while others want clarity and definition?Why are some people friendly and uninhibited, whilst others are restrained and detail-oriented?Why do some team members debate and argue, whilst others are more accepting and agreeable?Our individual differences often produce interpersonal blind spots that lead to misunderstandings.  This course will give you insights into how you can recognise and value differences without letting them get in the way of relationships.  It will help you to lead and communicate successfully with others whose way of looking at and relating to the world may be very different from you own.Broaden your understanding of personality type with this course “Leadership: Leading and Managing with Personality Type”.  This course will help you to integrate type theory concepts into leadership that will impact positively upon both your life personally and professionally. Personality Type is based on the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Personality Styles Indicator (PSI) and other personality tools developed from its framework.  Understanding Personality Types is easy when you know how.   Working with Personality Type has the power and breadth to deliver the deep insights and common language needed not just for leadership development, but for ongoing development across a wide range of business issues.Moving from recognising and understanding to appreciating and effectively using differences is a challenge because we all have a natural bias for our own way of seeing things and making decisions.  It can be hard to recognise our own biases, especially when they are reinforced by the cultural attitudes within which we live and work.Leadership is a vital element in any organisation.  Effective leaders provide the direction and alignment of their people vital for meeting commercial objectives, whilst avoiding operational inefficiencies and wasted resources.  Understanding Jungian-based Personality Types as a leader will help you identify your unique gifts.  The information enhances understanding of yourself, your motivations, your natural strengths, and your potential areas for growth.  It also helps you to appreciate people who differ from you and encourages co-operation with others. Applying your knowledge of personality type as a leader will help you toGrow your leadership capabilitiesBuild your self-confidenceMake better decisions involving peopleManage stressReduce conflictImprove all round performanceEnhance team effectivenessAllocate resources appropriatelyand much, much more.Understanding preferences and how they are expressed will help you to appreciate differences, work with these and communicate better with others.  It compliments other courses that explore emotional intelligence in more depth.The course covers the Jungian Theory of Personality Types looking at how you prefer to get your energy (Extraversion / Introversion), how you take in information (Sensing / Intuition), and how you process information (Thinking / Feeling).  Jung’s work was further developed by Katharine Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers to add a further dimension to look at how you choose to live your life (Judging / Perception). You will become aware of the dynamics and patterns natural to each person’s way of seeing, thinking, feeling and responding to the world.  Through applying this awareness, you will be able to become a more effective authentic leader through the respect that follows around your deep understanding of people and their behaviour in the workplace.  The awareness, also, helps you as a a leader to understand your leadership style preferences and from this which behaviours come naturally to you and which don’t.Working with Personality Type can be extremely useful to consider how the different personality types within the team may contribute differently to overall team effectiveness.  As a leader this kind of insight enables you to approach tasks and projects in a methodical way, and organise your team to deliver the best possible results.Ideally, you will be familiar with Personality Type theory having taken the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), PSI, or other personality framework based on Jungian-type theory.  This course builds upon a basic understanding of Type to investigate popular leadership styles, leadership techniques and methodologies to develop yourself and other people.
