20 Jun 2017

In the next few blog entries I will give you my take on the MBTI® Step II™ facets. Those of you who have been through CPP’s MBTI Certification Program know what an interesting day exploring the facets in more detail can be. While the facets don’t cover every characteristic of each dichotomy, they are “important and significant subsets,” as one participant expressed it. We have to remember that the facet results don’t add up to the dichotomies, and therefore some clients could have more out-of...

Myers-Briggs Personality Types and Leadership

11 May 2017

A couple of years back I wrote a blog series on type and leadership, and I’m now following that up with a few additional ideas focusing on the MBTI® process pairs: ST, SF, NF, and NT. While the T–F and J–P preference pairs are the ones most often explored in relation to leadership (maybe I’ll write about the TJ, TP, FJ, and FP pairs next), I still like looking at the middle letters of people’s four-letter type the most.

24 Jun 2016

Farming, Leadership Development and the TKI Tool

21 Apr 2016

“Farming is a profession of hope.” ― Brian Brett [Author] In 1919, a small group of farmers from 30 states gathered in Chicago. Their goal – speaking for themselves and representing the needs and issues of fellow farmers through their own national organization. Not long after that initial meeting, the American Farm Bureau Federation became the voice of agriculture at the national level. “The purpose of Farm Bureau is to make the business of farming more profitable, and the community a bette...
