The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) Assessment is the most widely used personality assessment in the world—more than 2 million people worldwide take it each year. With over 70 years of supporting research, most fortune 100 companies use it for everything from better communication to conflict management. 

This full-day, tailored workshop is intended to help frontline care providers understand how individual personality traits affect their communication and patient care styles—and how small, deliberate changes in style can significantly improve the well-being and satisfaction of care providers and patients alike. Participants complete the MBTI® Step II assessment in advance. During the interactive workshop, participants identify their “best-fit” type; complete group, partner, and individual activities; and analyze video examples to better understand the patient perspective. In conclusion, participants craft an individual “Patient Care Plan” that incorporates the adjustments they will make in the hospital, clinic, and/or lab setting based on how their innate personality connects with various patient personalities. Implementing these Patient Care Plans will enhance positive outcomes for the participant, patients, and organization. This workshop is appropriate for all professionals who directly interact with patients, including but not limited to:

  • MDs and MD/PhDs
  • Nurses
  • Technicians
  • Administrators
  • Fellows
  • Medical and MSTP Students
  • Translational Science Students and Professionals 
  • Allied Health Students and Professionals

Participants will receive over $45 worth of materials, including:

  • Personalized MBTI® Report for Healthcare Professionals
  • Introduction to Myers-Briggs® Type Workbook
