The first step to personal development
The MBTI Foundation Programme is your starting point for using the MBTI Step I instrument, the world’s most popular questionnaire for measuring personality Type.
Personal development starts with awareness. It’s only by understanding personality Types – both our own and others’ – that we can start to improve our interactions with the world and realise our potential.
The four-day MBTI Foundation Programme (MBTI Step I) is the start of a fascinating development journey. MBTI Step I explains personality Types according to the Myers-Briggs framework, and you learn about the differences, strengths and blind spots of different personality Types. The Step I Knowledge Bank provides continued practical support to help you to make the most of your training (see below for contents).
