Type and Stress Management:

Getting Back to Balance



Introduction and Background

Over 88% of the Fortune 100 Companies use the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) as the tool of choice for organizational effectiveness.

This course will focus on understanding personality type in relation to acute and chronic stress reactions. Understanding how to utilize strengths and recognizing opportunities for growth is the key to decreasing workplace stress. You will explore personality type in areas including: stress management, time management, networking skills and navigating through organizational changes.

You will use your results from your MBTI® Stress Management Assessment to describe how you are likely to experience and react to stress:

  • Recognize that the ways you behave, react to others, and generally look at life when you are experiencing stress are different than when you are not experiencing stress
  • Become aware of circumstances or events that are likely to trigger your stress reactions
  • Identify the most and least effective ways for you to deal with stress and your stress reactions
  • Identify the most and least helpful ways for others to respond to your stress reactions
  • Learn from your stress experiences and reactions so you can modify them rather than be controlled by them
