What People are Saying about this Course:

Thanks for this class. I don’t think I could have gained a good understanding of types by researching this on my own, even if I knew where to look for the info.


I LOVED the webinar. Confession: I always doubted how helpful the webinar could be on top of reading your blog for years. I'm so glad I finally gave in to my curiosity!


This class has been so much fun and so useful. Up until now I dismissed Myers Briggs as impractical but the way you use it is brilliant.

  • 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 personality information to guide your communication makes you a better leader, better manager, better collaborator—and even a better parent.


  • 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.


  • 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 personality type is like getting a recipe for creating surroundings that will encourage your fulfillment.
  • Find your best mate. Really. The personality typing system totally works for this. And even if it’s too late to pick a mate based on your personality type, understanding your needs in this context will make you better at getting your needs fulfilled, no matter who you are with.
