Workshop: Making Your Career Fit Your Style: Introduction to MBTI
Making Your Career Fit Your Style: Introduction to MBTI 


There is no assessment that can tell you what you should be doing professionally. Assessments are only tools that can assist you in making those decisions. For example, Career Leader focuses on your interests and values. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator focuses on personal style. Its basic question is “What is your innate preference in terms of motivation, learning, decision-making, and structure?” This small workshop will discuss MBTI styles and will review results from your having taken the instrument online a few weeks prior to the class. Results will only be distributed at the class, so please plan to attend the session in person. MBTI is among the world’s largest and most popular assessment instruments, and can be utilized in deciding on the right work culture, helping to articulate the types of careers being considered, hiring practices, team building, and conflict resolution. 

Date: Saturday, August 6th

Time: 11:40 am - 12:25  pm EST
