Introduction to Type and Innovation
Tap into MBTI® type and bring innovation to the workplace
Find out how type can help drive the process of innovation.
Why it’s useful
Research confirms that there is a link between personality type and innovation and that each of the sixteen MBTI types is critical to the innovation process. Introduction to Type and Innovation highlights the differences in how people define innovation, revealing why some phases of the innovation process feel comfortable, while others feel awkward and tiring. It enables you to develop type-friendly techniques that play to individual strengths in the innovation process, and shows how type-stretching techniques enable people to work “out of preference” and bring fresh perspective.
