Hands-on business

What is your work-style type?

The MBTI is an exciting tool to help people enhance their personal and interpersonal awareness. Nan also provides workshop sessions built around the MBTI® results, clarifying its many workplace applications such as:

  • Team Building
  • Conflict resolution
  • Relationship Building
  • General Communication
  • Stress Management

Nan Valentine is certified to administer and interpret the MBTI® (Myer-Briggs Type Indicator), the most widely used psychological type instrument in the world.


How is the MBTI instrument administered?

We start with an hour-long introductory session, where we discuss personal benefits of completing the MBTI.  We offer an easy-to-use online instrument, so you and your colleagues can complete the MBTI at your convenience.  People generally complete the instrument in about 30 minutes. There are 93 forced choice questions, meaning for each question people choose one of two answers they believe to be most like them.

Next, we score each instrument and generate a personalized report for each participant. Our second session is a half-day session. Participants receive their personalized report summaries, and we talk about what these results mean. Clients often schedule additional sessions for a more in-depth focus on stress management, conflict resolution, team building, or communication skill building.

We can also generate executive reports that offer composite type information for your group. This information helps senior executives better understand staff perspectives. There are numerous leadership applications…everything from developing communication strategies during times of major change to creating more productive work teams through type diversity.

“Nan recently offered the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to my team in a Drake workshop. After that she facilitated a session designed to incorporate type into a discussion of how to enhance our work and to guide our organizational planning. My team and I found great value in both the workshop and the planning session. They provided essential insight into our individual and collective strengths, the strategies needed to enhance our effectiveness and impact, and tools to focus on high value work. Nan’s expertise, passion, listening skills, and ability to apply the concepts in a practical way made this a terrific experience for all of us.”
