In today's challenging job market, counselors, coaches, and HR directors require skills that are at the forefront of assisting organizations with vocational counseling, job search strategies, and employee retention. In addition, counselors may find their clients in need of career development and assistance with career choices.
Learn how to use the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) instrument to assist clients in developing the skills necessary for optimal career strategies including best-fit careers, techniques for career development, empowerment, and decision making.
