Using Type in Career Development


Class Overview

In today's challenging job market, coaches, counselors, HR directors, and career professionals of all backgrounds require innovative skills for assisting organizations with career-related topics, including vocational development and employee advancement and retention. In addition, career professionals may find their clients in need of assistance with career choices, transitions, and career development.

In this two-day class you will learn how to use the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) instrument to assist clients in developing strategies and skills necessary for optimal career management, including best-fit careers, techniques for career development, empowerment, and decision making.
