MBTI and Leadership Development



When we look at leadership as enabling self and others to create meaningful results and relationships, there is an expectation that leaders know what results are important to them and others, and have the ability to build relationships and competencies to create those results.


Using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), individuals will learn how their psychological preferences influence their own leadership styles, as well as the working styles of those they are leading. Participants will also learn the type of support different personalities need to create the results they want.  Along with the application of coaching skills and/or case studies, participants will gain the skills, empathy and attitude necessary to be a leader.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify strengths and areas for improvements as a leader, based on our MBTI profiles.
  • Recognise the appropriate leadership behaviour for different individuals we are leading, based on the Skill-Will Matrix
  • Understand which leadership approaches we need to develop in, given our MBTI profile.
