2:10 Consulting partners with individuals, organizations, families, and engaged couples as part of their premarital counseling process to help them improve their communication, understanding, and teamwork by offering the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and the Highlands Ability Battery.
Essential to effective communication and more harmonious, productive relationships is understanding yourself and others. When you understand your and other people’s personality type preferences and unique design of aptitudes, you are able to more easily appreciate your differences and recognize the strengths of others.
Knowledge of personality type preferences and aptitudes allows you to see differences for what they truly are – different ways of processing information, thinking, and acting. Because aptitudes are our essential hardwiring – natural abilities and gifting to do certain things quickly, easily, and almost effortlessly – we tend to take them for granted and assume other people think and process the way we do. This can lead to conflict, impatience, and miscommunication.
When you understand personality type preferences and aptitudes, you are less likely to make judgments that you are “right” and the other person is “wrong.” You are able to minimize the frustration that comes when you feel someone is just being difficult by adopting a new perspective that their behavior is an expression of their personality type and aptitudes.
Teamwork is fostered when you understand and are able to deploy your strengths while appreciating and utilizing the strengths of others. This leads to working together as a unified team, minimizing interpersonal difficulties while maximizing effectiveness.
Understanding personality type preferences and aptitudes enables you to:
- Communicate openly and effectively
- Appreciate strengths and respect one another’s differences
- Use a nonjudgmental language when discussing misunderstandings and irritations
- Honor one another and work together as a team
- Deal with stress and conflict in ways that lead to resolution
- Maximize learning and problem solving skills
- Increase decision making effectiveness
- Create a more supportive environment for greater overall success and satisfaction
I offer interactive seminars for groups and hourly personalized feedback sessions for individuals, engaged couples, and families utilizing the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and the Highlands Ability Battery, separately or together. I customize the seminars and mentoring sessions according to your objectives and goals, always with the focus of setting you up for success.
