Consultation

Individual

Every instrument you purchase includes an interpretation with a certified consultant. The interpretation is important because the consultant will be able to discuss your report in detail, answer any questions you may have and give you real-life application. The interpretation can either be done via phone or video conference.

Team

Every team would like to maximize their potential. Myers-Briggs instruments' impact can be transformational! For any team, the MBTI can be valuable in understanding others' preferred ways of interacting with others, taking in information, making decisions, and structuring their world. The information enhances understanding of yourself, your motivations, and your natural strengths, as well as helping you appreciate those who differ from you.
