Because the workshop draws on results from the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI), participants must register by Friday, August 10.*

In today’s workplace, projects demand a tremendous amount of an organization’s energy. Developing a product, ensuring services are delivered on time, completing a plan that will drive the future — these are projects that motivate many to arrive at the office early and stay late each day. At the core of these projects are project manager and the project team: a collection of people charged with producing a unique and valuable product or service.

In this day-long workshop, participants will utilize the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) instrument to understand their psychological type to make projects more successful. They will:

  • Learn how different project teams direct and receive energy
  • Recognize individual decision-making characteristics
  • Identify strengths and challenges of a group
  • Discover to how get an at-risk project back on track

*Participants are required to complete the MBTI assessment prior to August 14. The customized report taken from the 15–20 minute assessment will be provided by Penn State Great Valley; participants will receive their personal feedback upon arrival to the workshop.
