Strengths, Derailers, and Gaps
Honoring Our Talents Skills are learned, but talents come naturally– often from an early age Talents are what we most enjoy doing. We may even lose the sense of time or “hard work” when using our talents Our Talents seek expression. We feel a drive to share and do that which comes naturally to us. Through our Talents we make our greatest contributions. Our legacy is likely to be associated with such contributions.
Some Hints about Strengths… Others tend to overlook our weaknesses if they respect our strengths In the absence of contradictory data, people extrapolate: “ He/She is VERY good in this area, therefore he/she must be good at everything else.” The “Halo Effect” means that a positive perception is easily reinforced.
Potential Derailers A derailer is not just a weakness. It is a weakness that is in the way of our progress and potential contribution. A derailer is weakness that has the potential to limit our progress in our career as well as other areas of life. No degree of success in other areas can compensate for a derailer. Sometimes, a derailer can be linked to a talent taken to an extreme.
Some Hints about Derailers… Others tend to focus on our weaknesses if they undermine the end result In the absence of progress, people see decline: “ He/She has not improved in this area, therefore he/she cannot continue working on this.” The “Horn Effect” means that a negative perception in one area easily poisons the well.
Potential Derailers What are some of the most critical derailers that could be faced in our work with HELP?
How do you Hope this Experience will Change You?
Why use the MBTI? To understand Self Preferences Strengths and Weaknesses To understand Others: Aware of Differences Communicate Effectively Work better as a team
Psychological Type Theory of personality developed by Swiss Psychologist Carl Jung Asserts that differences between people result from inborn preferences The natural, preferred way of using one’s mind and directing energy; the behavioral habits that develop as one uses these preferences
Psychological Type Is NOT about skills, intelligence, ability, or technical expertise Is NOT a psychological evaluation- it’s a tool Does NOT tell you what you can and cannot do Affirms that people are a lot more than their psychological type- environment culture education and training interests and motivation
The MBTI The way people naturally prefer to… – direct and get energy – take in information – make decisions – organize their external world By using… – Extraversion or Introversion – Sensing or iNtuition – Thinking or Feeling – Judging or Perceiving Identifies polar opposites (dichotomies) in four areas: There are NO right or wrong types!!
Extroversion and Introversion – E&I The ENERGIZING FUNCTION- 2 ways of orienting ourselves E= Energy directed outward in action I= Energy directed inward in reflection E= Seeking stimulation in the outer environment I= Seeking stimulation in the inner environment
Orientation of Energy Energized by Outer World Focus on People, Things Active Breadth of Interest Live it, then understand it Interaction Outgoing Energized by Inner World Focus on thoughts Reflective Depth of Interest Understand it, then live it Concentration Inwardly directed E (Extroverts) I (Introverts)
