Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
There’s more to Myers-Briggs assessment than personality profiling, though that is an important part. For decades Myers-Briggs indicators have shown us how people in all walks of life approach problems, make decisions, and process information – key components in managing the diverse members of an organizational team.
Working well together is crucial for your team to achieve maximum results, particularly when those results mean sharing resources and hope with others in your community. Understanding your leaders’ unique personalities will help you appreciate how they interact so you can more effectively approach challenges within your organization. MBTI assessments offer you a versatile, easy-to-use system for better understanding your team members’ approach to conflict-management, problem-solving and interpersonal communications.
Once you complete your MBTI assessment, Blackfish will help you analyze the results, and apply them toward improving your leadership platform, training methods and team-building initiatives.

Thomas Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI)
No matter how benevolent your organization may be, resolving conflict is an unfortunate component of working with people.
