Coaching Using Whole Type

IMG_5971                    by Susan Nash

Psychological type is an invaluable tool in coaching clients. Research has shown that use of the Myers Briggs Type Indicator® in performance coaching tends to be limited to deciding best-fit type and trying to get to grips with non-preferred sides. In the Coaching Using Whole Type session you will learn how to use the three lenses of type (Temperament, Interaction Style and Cognitive Processes) to supplement your existing coaching practices and provide more depth to the coaching relationship.
The workshop comprises of four sessions spread over a span of two days. Only participants completing all for sessions qualify for the APTi Coaching Certificate and 14 MBTI CEU Credits ( which will be processed directly by APTi).
18th February
Morning Session
  Coaching using Temperament: 9:30 – 12:30
(Coffee Break : 10:30 – 10:45 a.m.)
Temperament is a separate and yet complementary theory to Psychological type. Temperament may be defined as a pattern of needs, values, talents and behaviors that underlies your way of acting and being in the world. Originally integrated with psychological type by David Keirsey, and brought into the 21st century by Linda Berens, temperament provides additional understanding of core drivers and innate stress responses.In this interactive session you will:
  • Learn about the four temperaments and what each expects from the coaching process.
  • Analyze your temperament and understand your innate gifts and potential blind spots as a coach.
  • Explore how to build commonality with different temperaments.
Afternoon Session
 Coaching using Interaction Style: 1:30 – 4:30 pm
(Tea Break : 3:00 – 3:15 pm)
Interaction Style is another separate and yet complementary theory to Psychological type. Interaction Style is a pattern of physical energy, pace, movement and outward behaviors correlated with mental aims, beliefs and innate talents that underlie the ways in which you might engage with others to get your needs met. Based on William Marston’s work, Linda Berens was able to articulate how this theory linked with psychological type.In this interactive session you will:
  • Learn about the four Interaction Style and how each naturally approaches the coaching process.
  • Analyze your Interaction Style and understand your innate gifts and potential blindspots as a coach.
  • Explore how to flex your style to build a more cohesive coaching relationship.
19th February
Morning Session
 Coaching using Cognitive Processes: 9:30 – 12:30
(Coffee Break : 10:30 – 10:45 a.m.)
When you’ve completed the MBTI® qualification program, it is very easy to focus on the four dichotomies alone. However the “four-letter code” was created by Myers and Briggs as a short cut for understanding which of the eight cognitive processes you naturally access and in which hierarchy. Understanding these eight functions (originally described by Carl Jung) provides type practitioners with innovative new ways to use type within organizations, adds another area of depth, and can overcome the objection “Oh I have done MBTI”. In this interactive session you will:
  • Learn about the eight cognitive processes (Extraverted Sensing – Se, Introverted Sensing -  Si, Extraverted Intuiting  – Ne, etc.
  • Know the hierarchy of functions for all 16 types.
  • Understand how this knowledge can be applied in coaching and working with others.
Afternoon Session
 Coaching using Whole Type: 1:30 – 4:30 pm
(Tea Break : 3:00 – 3:15 pm)
(Only for those who have attended the other three sessions. This session will comprise Coaching Case Studies and the Contextual Coaching framework)
In this session you will learn a model to help individuals develop their strengths, as well as learn new skills or overcome innate blindspots. You will then learn or review how these can be integrated with the Interaction Style/Energy framework to create a more effective and targeted coaching conversation. The session will be fast paced with exercises, knowledge checks and case studies. You will walk away with a performance development methodology to harness talents, and a greater understanding of how to adapt your coaching style to the performance level of the individual that you are coaching.
