Look to your leaders to increase well-being

Why employee-manager relationships are so important


Research shows that an employee’s relationship with their manager has an especially large effect on their well-being.2

The problem is not all managers are skilled at maintaining relationships. And positive relationships are not achieved with a one-size-fits-all strategy.

Why? Because different people need different things to have a great relationship. That’s where the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) can help.

Three routes to better manager relationships and employee well-being:

Run your own training for your managers by getting MBTI® certified

By getting MBTI certified, you can use your training to help your managers foster better relationships, be better leaders, and therefore help improve overall employee well-being. You can coach individuals, run team workshops, and help your organization perform better all around. Our certification program will give you everything you need to plan and deliver a workshop to help improve well-being.

The virtual delivery was seamless and the availability of (free) virtual support materials for practitioners is also excellent. Once you pass the exam you are ready to hit the ground running!

Develop inclusive leaders for better business results

Leaders set the tone for inclusive workplace cultures. And research shows inclusive workplaces have better decision making, improved performance and higher morale.

But do your leaders know what to do? How to be inclusive? The Inclusive Leadership: Harnessing Diversity of Thought virtual workshop is a high-impact, interactive development experience that teaches leaders the behaviors and skills to build cultures of inclusion.

Invest in a workshop for your managers (or your teams and their managers)

If you’re looking for an instant impact for your employees, consider this virtual workshop facilitated by an expert consultant. Participants learn their own MBTI personality type, and then apply type to better appreciate differences in how to communicate and make decisions. Each workshop includes an individual action plan for participants to leverage their learnings.
The session armed us with an invaluable tool to be more effective in achieving our organizational goals. We’re better able to move forward as a team thanks to the insights we gained. In fact, we found it so helpful (for our board members) that we’re looking at doing a similar workshop with employees soon.
