Development Tools

MBTI - Myers Briggs Type Indicator

The MBTI tool provides a constructive, flexible framework that can be applied to all areas of human interaction and personal development. The MBTI profile reveals how we see and interact with the world, giving insight into our motivation and the motivation of others. This provides a strong foundation for personal growth and development, underpinning enhanced personal effectiveness.

It is particularly effective for leaders to use to enhance their own self awareness and also to use in a team setting to appreciate difference within the team.

Members of the staff training and development team (STDU) are qualified practitioners of the MBTI tool.

If you are interested in using the tool either in an individual or team setting – please get in touch via our contact section

360 degree feedback

360 degree feedback is just as it says – a process that allows you to view your performance holistically at a given point in time via the feedback of those that you report to, those that work with and for you as well as your own assessment of your performance.

Many of our leaders who have undertaken the 360 process as part of a leadership development programme have found it an illuminating experience – as the feedback gives you an idea of areas where you are strong, areas that you might want to strengthen as well as giving you an insight into how you impact on others.
It’s a confidential process. The report is for your own use and your feedback is given in a 1:1 session.

Action Learning

“there is no learning without action, and no action without learning” Reg Revans

Action learning is a development process which involves a small group of people with similar or complementary roles and responsibilities meeting together at regular intervals over an agreed period of time. The group are assisted by a facilitator whose role is to help the members develop and work together effectively.

Each person brings to the group, a current, real, leadership issue or challenge. The other members of the group, through challenging but supportive questioning, help the individual to gain insight and options, hopefully leading to action. The idea therefore is that participants draw directly on work based experience and take what they learn directly back to the workplace.

Action learning is available as a component of some of our leadership programmes or can be set up separately for interested parties.
