Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
Alison Craig Coaching has qualified MBTI Step I Practitioners. MBTI is a psychometric tool that helps individuals or groups understand their personality preference. MBTI focuses on peoples’ strengths and how to build upon them. Following completion of the specially designed MBTI questionnaire, either a 1 to 1 session or a Best Fit workshop for groups of up to 15 will be provided.
MBTI is widely known and respected in the business sector because it offers so many benefits, including improved:
- Communication Skills
- Influencing Skills
- Leadership Skills
- Team Relationships
- Conflict Management
- Stress Management
Clarity 4D is a personality profiling tool that uses 4 colours, to describe the thinking and behaviour outlined in Carl Jung’s psychological preferences work.
By participating in a workshop and using their own personal Clarity 4D report, individuals can work through the 4 Ds below. Clarity 4D is a really effective and memorable tool, brilliant to use with teams to get them communicating and working productively together.
DISCOVER – how you see yourself
DISCUSS – how others see and experience you
DIVERSIFY – look at how and when to maximise on yout strengths and when to focus on energies that you generally use much less. Diversify and flex, to deal more effectively with different stakeholders’ preferences
DEVELOP – use your insights from Clarity 4D to develop your full potential over time
Strengths Deployment Inventory (SDI)
Alison Craig Coaching has qualified SDI Practitioners too. We use SDI with individuals and teams to really tap into strengths and look at how to overcome weaknesses.
“The SDI is a powerful and effective tool for understanding and influencing the motives that drive behaviours. The SDI plays off people’s basic need to better understand themselves and others, and that understanding allows them to lead with clarity and empathy, build stronger teams, and more effectively navigate conflict.” https://totalsdi.uk/assessments/the-power-of-the-sdi/
