Description

This group is a place to share resources and ask questions related to the June 15, 2011 webinar:

Personality differences can lead to misunderstanding, which can lead to conflict. For instance, Thinking types prefer directness, while Feeling types prefer tact. This presentation will explore how an understanding of personality types can help workplace teams turn differences from liabilities into assets.

Thanks for posting these links about the MBTI and teamwork, Andrea. I'm going through the Types on Teams site now. Lots of interesting perspectives. I've also read the book GIFTS DIFFERING, which is a great introduction to the MBTI.
