  2. 2. Setting the Stage <ul><li>Effective self-development and providing feedback to develop others requires: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>An openness to your own strengths and overdone strengths (also known as weaknesses). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Understanding the connection between the two. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Seeing the link between what you value, and what you most value in others. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Leaders must both understand their own strengths and development needs, and coach others in understanding theirs. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Where Are Your Strengths? Blind Spots? What Do You See in Others? <ul><li>Energetic or Pushy? </li></ul><ul><li>Calm or Withdrawn? </li></ul><ul><li>Detailed or Nitpicky? </li></ul><ul><li>Imaginative or Impractical? </li></ul><ul><li>Analytical or Cold? </li></ul><ul><li>Helpful or Subservient? </li></ul><ul><li>Decisive or Too Bossy? </li></ul><ul><li>Adaptable or Too Wishy Washy? </li></ul>What you see as a strength in yourself may be perceived as a weakness by another. What you perceive as a weaknesses in others may be a strength overdone. What possible strength lies beneath what you see as a weakness?
  4. 4. Overview of Psychological Type <ul><li>Cognitive model concerned with hard-wired preferences for gathering information and making decisions </li></ul><ul><li>Framework and vocabulary allowing people to speak more effectively about needs, expectations, preferences and styles </li></ul><ul><li>The MBTI® Assessment, which focuses on psychological type preferences, is a very popular assessment for this model </li></ul><ul><li>Broadening the focus from preference to behavior , in a very tactical way, helps people apply type principles: the Portraits of Jung Type Behavior™ provides a tool for this </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Preferences of Psychological Type References: Rutledge, DH (2004) MBTI Introduction Workbook. OKA (Otto Kroeger Associates); Fairfax, VA
  6. 6. Overview of Portraits of Jung Type Behavior™ <ul><li>Self-administered assessment </li></ul><ul><li>Draws from both the theory of psychological type and Relationship Awareness Theory </li></ul><ul><li>Highlights your behavioral choices, either in a whole-life focus, or in a specific area </li></ul>
  7. 7. Completing the Portraits <ul><li>Pick one set: Green or Orange. Separate the behavior stickers from the sheet you have chosen. </li></ul><ul><li>Use the green stickers on the green portrait; the orange stickers on the orange portrait. </li></ul><ul><li>Sort the stickers from top to bottom on the portrait, with one card per space: put the behaviors you use most frequently at the top, the ones you use least frequently at the bottom. </li></ul><ul><li>Stickers on the same row have the same weight. </li></ul><ul><li>You can score using the instructions on the Portraits. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Completing the Portraits
  9. 9. Applying the Portraits: Exercise <ul><li>Name a time when one of your top behaviors supported your success. What did you do? How did it work? </li></ul><ul><li>Name a time when one of your underused behaviors (near the bottom of the list) could have been used to increase your effectiveness. What could you have done? Lesson learned? </li></ul><ul><li>Each positive behavior is associated with an overdone one. Name a time when you OVERUSED a behavior. What happened, and what would you do differently next time? </li></ul><ul><li>What practical development actions can you derive from this exercise? </li></ul>
  10. 10. Extending to Feedback Delivery <ul><li>Who do you need to deliver feedback to about what? </li></ul><ul><li>What strengths or overdone strengths may be at work? </li></ul><ul><li>What might explain the other person’s behavior in positive ways? </li></ul><ul><li>What could you ask to explore root causes? </li></ul>
  11. 11. Three Guiding Questions: Use Them Often and Anytime! <ul><li>What’s working well? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What behaviors are strengths? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>What’s not working well? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What behaviors do I need more of, or less of? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>What should I do differently given this? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What actions could or should I take? </li></ul></ul>
