Myers Briggs Type Indicator and Leader Communication

Presenter: Perry Sholes, SHRM-SCP, SPHR – President of Progressive HR Strategies Inc


Overview of the Workshop:

The Leader Communication workshop is designed to explore the important links between psychological type and leader communication. Our primary goal is to enable participants to experience the practical usefulness of type while working as leaders in their organizations. In the most basic sense, we want the leaders who are participating in the workshop to see type as a dynamic model that can assist them in communicating ideas and instructions to others and, equally important, in being effective listeners. Our type, which influences our perception and judgments about information is an important factor in developing enhanced communication and leadership effectiveness.

This module emphasizes the critical role type plays in all communication and explores the rich differences in style. We will identify strengths of the different types as well as potential sources of miscues and misunderstandings. Through learning how different types approach communication, leaders have a greater chance to increase the effectiveness of their efforts.
