BRADFORD ON AVON, England, March 8 Many organisational conflicts arise from personality clashes. In fact, one of the most common reasons that people give for leaving the company they are working for is that they don't like their boss or their colleagues.
If you feel more like a referee than a manager most days, the chances are that your team has not yet found a way to pool their resources and use their differences to best effect.
Myers Briggs Personality Type is a popular psychological profiling tool that can be used to help people understand how they impact on each other. It explores how different people are energised, how they take in information, make decisions and organise their lives. For example:
Myers Briggs is based on the theory that there are 16 unique personality types. It doesn't seek to put people in boxes or explain everything about a person's behaviour. What it will do, though, is help your people understand and appreciate their differences, reduce conflict and get your team working together for the common good of your company.
Think Training & Development specialise in delivering Myers Briggs training to organisations to improve their teamwork, retention and most importantly, their productivity.
Using a series of light-hearted exercises to help people discover their own and their colleagues' personality types, Think has brought unity to hundreds of teams across the world since they opened for business in 2003.
Gavin Aubrey and Wendie Michie, directors of Think and licensed Myers Briggs practitioners, offer fast-paced, pragmatic and hugely energising sessions in this fascinating subject which are 100% focused on getting you the results you want.

-- Some people like to throw ideas around out loud while others prefer to figure things out quietly on their own. -- Some need to collect lots of information before they'll act while others will just go with their hunches. -- Some base their decisions on feelings and values while others deal in logic and principles. -- And some like to plan and organise while others wait till the very last minute to deliver.
