Work Teams With Different Personality Types

27 Aug Work Teams With Different Personality Types


There they were – 8 people in one place.

What’s Your ‘Type’?

They were all different…very different. But…that’s a good thing.

It was last week in Nebraska that I met these folks. They own a medium-sized agricultural business. And…they are very successful….

But – there are times when they irritate each other. The detailed folks get frustrated with one of the bosses who relate to them in general terms. The flexible, spontaneous team members get tired of feeling restricted to a tight structure. Sometimes, the Introverts don’t say anything when they are frustrated…they just let the Extroverts talk.

So how do the owners of this business make it all work?

Well….it’s a process. It’s a process that’s sometimes difficult…but it’s worth it in the end.

And…we are helping them in this process.

We did a first in a series of team-building workshops for this client. First, we took them through the basics of personality and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. At the end of the first session, they learned their personality ‘type’.

Later, we’ll take them through more workshops to help apply the personality principles of personality and really take to heart what the strengths of their own personality type are.

Then, we’ll help them recognize and appreciate the strengths of those that are different than they are.

Will it be difficult? Yes

But…it will be worth it.
