How is MBTI Used in Organizations?

  • Leadership development– understanding leaders’ personality type and the type of those they are leading to help them manage better, lead more effectively, give more meaningful feedback, inspire and influence effectively, and improve individual and team performance
  • Interpersonal skills development– promoting individual self-awareness and increasing effectiveness across myriad applications
  • Conflict Management– improving skills in identifying sources of conflict and intervening early to prevent under performance, disruption, and disengagement
  • Executive and line manager coaching– helping individuals stretch to accomplish ambitious personal and organizational goals and retaining top talent
  • Stress management– building resilience, increasing organizational focus and productivity, and offering strategies and action steps for identifying stress-related triggers
  • Career transition and planning– advising individuals on career choice, development, and the impact of organizational change to ensure that top talent is retained in alternative roles rather than lost to other organizations



Many Companies, big and small, have used the MBTI instrument to achieve results. Some of the more high-profile examples include JetBlue, Sony, Kaiser Permanente, Southwest Airlines, Ernst & Young, Hallmark, and Health New England.
