Wendie’s Weekly Diary – Myers-Briggs®

Myers-Briggs®

Last week, I  was on urban safari. In the manner of David Attenborough, I have been observing the behaviours of a fledgling ENFP in its natural habitat as it prepares to migrate to sunnier climes for the summer.

Ok… so I’ve just been to stay with my little brother in London for a few days, before he goes off travelling, but it got me thinking…

ENFP is one of sixteen personality types used in the renowned Myers-Briggs® personality type model. All 16 personality types have their own unique preferences and blind-spots. This explains, to some extent, why we get on so well with some people, while others infuriate or baffle us. more…

This podcast is the first in a series of 3 which explore the personality type theory of Myers-Briggs®.

It will give you some clues as to why some people dive in and act before they think things through while others think carefully before they act.

Wendie’s Weekly Diary – Conflict Management

Conflict Management

A friend returned to work after a week’s holiday on Monday, to find some of her staff staging a mini rebellion. They gave her a list of demands. I gave her some tips on conflict management.

“Give and take”, I said.

“But they’re the conflict. And I’m the management!”
, she wailed.

Leadership Training Courses Don’t Work

You may think this is an odd claim, given that it is made by Think Training & Development Limited, a company that specialises in Leadership Training, but picture the scene…

Your company is not doing as well as it could. Your people need some direction; some motivation. And you’re the person to deliver it. If only you knew how.

You need some help, so you book yourself on to an expensive Leadership Training Course.

To understand behaviour, look beneath the tip of the iceberg.

Have you ever asked yourself what drives human behaviour? Why people sometimes act in ways that you find difficult to understand?

Imagine an iceberg. The tip is above water – you can see this. The majority of the iceberg is under the water – hidden from view.

A person’s behaviour is like the tip of the iceberg – the part you can see. What drives that behaviour lies underneath the surface. Venture below surface level and you’ll discover the values, beliefs, experiences and thoughts that drive a person’s behaviour.

Listen to the podcast to find out more.

If you’d like to better understand and influence the behaviour of the people in your team, a good place to start is with some Myers Briggs or Influencing Skills training.
