Coaching: Integrating the MBTI Instrument

Increase your versatility as a coach

Use the MBTI Type framework to provide coaching insights in a wider range of coaching situations including the coach-coachee relationship.


You will learn how to provide Type-related insights in your coaching practice. You will gain experience in applying the MBTI instrument in a range of ways and be provided with related practical tools that enhance your coaching.

This course is one of a pair of complementary courses to support your coaching practice. Whilst this course takes a broad look at Type and coaching, our other course Coaching: Leveraging Type Dynamics takes a deep look at the application of Type dynamics in coaching.

Course flow consciously mirrors how coaching works: how at the heart of coaching is the individual, followed by an understanding of how the individual relates to others, and then their effectiveness in an organisational setting.
