At Shine People we use a range of internationally recognised and validated tools in our work.  Before proposing the use of a specific tool we first work with you to understand the issue and the outcomes you are looking for.  We then tailor the solution to fit.  The MBTI® instrument is one of the tools we use.  Here's why.

What others have to say about  our MBTI® development programmes

"I enjoyed learning about MBTI, the knowledge helps me better understand my workmates.  It has helped  me to be a better manager and adapt to the needs of my staff as well as understand the decision making processes of our management team.  I would highly recommend the course for any team, as it brings the team closer together and facilitates working together.  Denise is a wonderful instructor and facilitator who puts everyone at ease, explains things very well, while keeping a light a fun atmosphere."  (Team Development workshop)

"I went into the MBTI workshop a bit sceptical as to whether this stuff works.  I came out with a different viewpoint – it does work.  My profile was spot on and I had light bulb moments around why I and my team mates doing things the way they do.  Denise clearly has deep knowledge and expertise of MBTI but put it across in a way that was easy to understand and fun.  The activities we did as a team were practical and fun, they helped us to find out more about each other and to gel as a team.  My MBTI learnings have enabled me to adapt my communication style to build stronger relationships - inside and outside of work.  Thanks Denise."  (Team Building workshop)

“Very interesting to step back and think of things in this way.  If only it was compulsory for all staff members of any organisation to attend something like this.”  (Team Development workshop)

“Helped me to become more aware of my interpersonal and communication style and how to adapt it with people around me” (Leadership development)

“I’m now less frustrated with the way other people do things.  They’re not trying to annoy, it’s just how they are wired” (Team Development workshop)
