Learning each other's personalities
What a fun day at the office! We had an exciting visit from Linda Beggs, trainer/facilitator of Linda Beggs Associates. At our office we work closely together when it comes to our projects and our clients. In order to better understand each person’s individual communication style we all took a personality assessment, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator©. Linda came in yesterday to talk about the results over lunch from Emma’s Bistro so we could all get a better understanding of each other and how we work the best together. Thank you Linda for all of the interesting information!
Here is what we learned from Linda:
- Our team is full of personality similarities and differences
- There are four types of MBTI Temperaments, most of us were classified as (NF) or “Idealists”
- We are happy to have Tricia and Adam to keep our team balanced!
The image below shows which work style each of us fell into.
As you can see we are exceptionally “intuitive” at the Mopdog office!
