Who said you can’t mix business with pleasure?If you’re looking to inspire some fun into your team while also strengthening the bond between team members, then look no further.
The 16Personalities tool is just the thing to increase better working relationships and thereby productivity by understanding each other’s personalities and workstyles.
It gives each individual an insight into what makes them tick across areas such as strengths and weaknesses, career paths, workplace habits, romantic relationships, parenting and friendships.
It’s also a great tool for understanding how we can best work with our team-mates – what communication style will be most effective or how you can best approach feedback so that it lands as effectively as possible.
As a tool for the team, 16Personalities is fun.
It gives each person a character and assigns well known people, such as actors, actresses, presidents, notable theorists and historians, to that character.
This is fun for teams to compare and enjoy mixing and matching the personalities within the office.
For managers, it’s a great tool to help you understand how to get the best out of your staff and how to help them grow in their role and their career.
Why not give it a try as a team building exercise?
Have each team member take the test, digest their results, gain some insights and the come together and share some work-related things about each other.
