Hello Elizabeth, Marijo, Megan and Vanessa!
I am thrilled to be working with you to use the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) to better understand yourself, each other, and how you function as a team.
Using MBTI, I can help you understand your natural preferences for directing your energy, taking in information, making decisions, and approaching the outside world - and the preferences of your team members - in order to increase individual and team performance and satisfaction. Together, we will use this information to inform the team's vision, strategy and action plan in order to connect to the greatest value you can offer towards making the world a better place for all.
The MBTI is a personality assessment that gives you a 4-letter type such as ISTJ or ENFP. This type describes your innate preferences for how you understand and interact with the world and others. There are many free versions of the test online, but the MBTI "Step II” Assessment offered with this session provides a breakdown of each of the 4 letters of your type into 5 facets for an even deeper understanding. During our session, we will also have an interactive discussion to verify your online assessment results, and to make a determination as to what your true “best fit” type is (which may differ from your online results).
Three-hour team vision session
Myers-Briggs “Step II” Assessment and 17-page interpretive report in PDF format for each team member
You will each take an individual MBTI assessment online (Megan signed up for an individual session with me so she has already done hers)
We'll meet for three hours online via zoom, date TBD
In order to get started, please watch this short 5 minute video. Avoid the temptation to skip this step before doing the online assessment! It will help you get the best information out of your assessment.
Note, if you have trouble streaming the video, you may view it or download it from Dropbox.
Once you have watched the video above, you may proceed with your online Myers-Briggs Step II assessment here (Megan - you don't have to do this again!)
You will first be taken to a registration page where you will be asked to create an account. Then you will get access to the assessment.
Remember to allow 30-60 minutes for the assessment, and to complete it at least 48 hours ahead of our session. You will receive the results of your assessment during our session.
Note that the assessment is not an assessment of skills, talent or performance. The results are confidential - I will not share them without permission. I will confirm your agreement to share your results amongst the team at the start of the session. If you have any concerns, please talk with Elizabeth.
In order for us to take the findings from each of your assessments and tie them into the team's mission, vision and goals for 2018 and beyond, please think about and be ready to answer the questions below at the beginning of our session.
As this is a team session, think about the answers in the context of your role on the team, but in keeping with the Gaia Project's holistic approach, you will each be invited to talk about as much as you need to from other parts of your life.
If you'd like to write your answers down and send them to me ahead of our session, you can, but this is optional.
Right now I am waiting to hear from Elizabeth and the team as to possible dates and times for our team session. Until then, there is nothing more for you to do.
I look forward to our session and wish you a happy new year!
