Team Development with MBTI

Kick off MBTI for teams Yesterday, I facilitated a session for a group of these talented, high performer people. They had just become a team and was still feeling the space but you could already see some really interesting dynamics raising up. The goal was to bring them closer to becoming a team. And for that, we used MBTI, which raises awareness. Awareness about yourself, your own personality, and about others, making it easier to work together. It was challenging to prepare for it, the first time I actually facilitated MBTI for a group instead of individually. There were...

Detox

So, what happens when you leave the place you’ve been intensely working at for the past ten years? Surprisingly little, at first. I still wake up from dreams about work, wondering about a report, or a project that needs to get done. A keyword, a name will trigger an association with work and the impulse to find out more, to interfere. I still say we/our when in reality it’s they/theirs. Every now and then there a pang of anxiety, a feeling that this is just a vacation, an interruption; a sense of the floor slipping under my feet. There...
