"Katie ran a great half-day workshop with two small teams based in Google Sydney Australia. Every member of the team came away significantly more insightful about what makes their colleagues 'tick'; what new behaviours they may need to adopt as a result of accommodating the needs of different people; and overall were a little more informed about their stress points and natural thinking and behavioural preferences. One team member mentioned "I look forward to applying what we've learned in day-to-day team situations." Another team member mentioned that the behaviour of "different types... was both fascinating and amusingly accurate. It has given me a much greater understanding of how to identify and communicate with different personalities in the future."
Our only regret is that we didn't rollout the course a few months earlier! Personally, I would strongly recommend this workshop for teams that are newly forming and/or in situations where work tasks demand quite diverse behavioural types. That said, it's beneficial to any team and at any point in time."

Thank you very much for facilitating our group on Friday! The Myers-Briggs session was a wonderful exercise and gave everyone a lot of insight into each other and themselves. The activity in looking at ways to work with and appreciate each others differences was invaluable, and I'm sure will help us in achieving our goals! You did a wonderful job in keeping everyone on track and focused.
Business Unit Manager
Thank you for the team building session yesterday. I gained some useful insights and was able to reflect on my preferred style of working and the ways that it can impact on my colleagues. It provided a useful starting point for us to consider more effective ways of working together as well as for working with our clients. You facilitated the session extremely well and did a fine job of managing our group of 'enthusiastic and imaginative' extroverts!

"Jane Anderson ran a half-day workshop with our divisional leadership team. It was a fantastic opportunity for all leaders to complete the Myers Briggs assessment and to receive a full explanation of their personality type and preferences. Of equal importance, everyone gained an insight into the personality types and working styles of their colleagues. This knowledge will support our team to interact more effectively and efficiently."
Succinct, punchy and valuable. A great workshop and outcome. Well done!

A really useful eye opening session far exceeding our expectations. Thank you Suzie!"
