What People are Saying about this Course:
I wanted to know the way the personality type was explained. I found it much more helpful than anything else I've seen before. It's career focused and much better organized. Everything else is too touchy-feely and seems scattered.
Thanks so much for the practical and helpful advice in the seminar. I learned so much about my personality type and how I relate to friends, family and co-workers. I never understood why I could excel in many areas and careers, yet feel drained and unsatisfied in some and motivated and fulfilled in others. Looking back, I think personality type had a lot to do with it. One of the most helpful activities has been to place the people I know in the 16 boxes and notice the patterns. All my closest friends are in two boxes and all the people I have the most conflict with are in another two boxes. I now understand why and how to improve my relationships.
This seminar was great! There was so much info in each one and I think I'd like to watch them all again, maybe even twice (to be honest, I'd like to watch one time and just read the chat... there were so many interesting comments/conversations).
Watch classes wherever, whenever you want.

DAY ONE: PERSONALITY TYPE EXPERT
- Understand your type. If you understand your own score you will overcome your weaknesses more readily and put yourself in positions where you are likely to succeed. Also, you’ll understand so much more about your past because you’ll have a better sense of who you are.
- Understand other people’s types. It’s actually possible to hear about 20 sentences from someone and get a good sense of that person’s score. And once you get good at that, you feel like a mind reader. It’s incredibly empowering because it allows you to connect with people much faster and more meaningfully than ever before.
- Use that information to be an extraordinary communicator. The key to talking to people so they will listen is in understanding how they want to hear you. Using Myers Briggs information to guide your communication makes you a better leader, better manager, better collaborator—and even a better parent.
DAY TWO: MYERS BRIGGS TO MAKE WORK GREAT
- Be a better manager by understanding what motivates different types of people. You can only motivate people by using what they care about, not what you care about. Understanding the difference is essential to being able to lead a wide range of people.
- Become a star in your career by understanding what truly sets you apart from other people at work. We underestimate our standout strengths because they are so natural to us. They come so easily to us that we assume most people have them. The best way to understand how we are special is to understand other peoples’ strengths in the context of our own. This allows us to see how we fit together and how we stand out as well.
- Recognize your hurdles as a product of your personality type and find new ways around them. Each of use can get to the top of our field if we know what is holding us back. Most people have a sense of their weaknesses, but weaknesses are paired with strengths, and if you see your weaknesses as part of your package you’ll understand better how to compensate.
DAY THREE: UNDERSTANDING MYERS BRIGGS WILL MAKE YOUR PERSONAL LIFE GREAT
- Find your best career path. If you’re stuck or you’re looking to change careers, you absolutely should understand the demands of your personality type before you move forward. The best way to make a smart career move is to do it in the context of your strengths within your personality type and what will make you feel fulfilled. For many people fulfillment is a mystery. It will not be after this session!
- Find your best inspiration. If you surround yourself with people who drain you, you don’t benefit and neither do they. Often, though, we pick people who are familiar to us instead of who is best for us. At work and at home our inspiration comes from our environment—but only if it is conducive to our finding fulfillment. Understanding your Myers Briggs score is like getting a recipe for creating surroundings that will encourage your fulfillment.
- Find your best mate. Really. The Myers Briggs system totally works for this. And even if it’s too late to pick a mate based on your Myers Briggs score, understanding your needs in this context will make you better at getting your needs fulfilled, no matter who you are with.
