Stress Management and Personality Type - Navigating Through Current Challenges


Program Overview

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:

  • Identifying communication styles from an overview of personality type. We will cover the opposite ways of gaining energy (Extroversion or Introversion), gathering information (Sensing or Intuition), coming to a conclusion about that information (Thinking or Feeling), and dealing with the world around us (Judging or Perceiving). This will be related directly to how to engage others in the workplace and recognize their natural strengths.
  • Gaining a better understanding of team preferences as to how the team relates together in terms of decision-making styles. All participants will identify team strengths, potential challenges, and ways to improve performance.
  • Identifying stress triggers through guided discussions based on how each unique personality type responds to acute and chronic stress; how to get back to balance will be discussed in detail. People tend to revert to the less preferred areas of their personality when conflict arises.
  • Identifying with one of four change management styles through customized activities. This will assist the leadership team in introducing organizational change effectively within the team as well as the team communicating their needs.
  • Exploring time management techniques to increase productivity based on preferences.
  • Understanding coping strategies in terms of overall wellness including sleep patterns, time management and self-care.
  • Prioritizing tasks will be discussed in terms of neuroscience and whether or not you are a morning person or if you energize later in the day.
  • Understanding preferences in terms of how to properly delegate tasks while utilizing our team’s natural strengths.
