Personality Type Training & Consulting
Unlock the Superpowers of your Team!

Personality Type (aka MBTI) is a powerful lens that enables you to understand the strengths of your team. Knowing the individual types and group dynamics of your team allows everyone to be more effective, engaged, and energized in their roles.

We offer a comprehensive approach to unlocking the potential of your team. Using a combination of Temperament, Interaction Styles, Team Leadership Styles, and Project Leadership Styles, your team members will be able to tap into their own resources and those of their co-workers more effectively.

What you can expect as a result of learning Your Personality Type:

  • Personality Type (aka MBTI) is a useful lens that provides key insight into expectations that team members bring to groups and roles.
    Personality Type provides common language for building bridges and creating more dynamic teams.
  • When team member will learn their natural Personality Type (1 of 16), you can identify areas for improvement, blind spots where deeper understanding, humor, and a slower pace would be required.
  • You can learn ways to access the strengths of your people in daily interactions and strategic positioning of company, team, or department.
  • This is a practical and flexible model for making well-rounded decision that encourages engagement and buy-in.

Four lenses of learning & applying Personality Type to group & team development:

Dynamic Team Leadership & Project Leadership Styles act as a complementary system and are best used together.

  • Leadership (& Followship) Styles – How we make decisions and how this impacts group dynamics.
  • Project Leadership Styles – How we interact with time and deadlines and how this impacts group planning, projects, and goals.
  • 8 Essential Questions – Applies your knowledge of group’s Personality Types to a practical and versatile system of inclusion and diversity of all perspectives.

Temperament & Interaction Styles act as a complementary system and are best used together.

  • Temperament Styles – Why we do what we do and how it the influences culture norms of an organization.
  • Interaction Styles – How we do what we do and how it contributes to potential area of conflict.

Leadership Coaching

We highly recommend that after your team leaders learn about their Personality Type, that they have access to follow-up coaching. They will have questions and encounter challenges as they apply what they learned to their teams. Providing follow-up coaching is the best way to ensure a return on the investment you have made in training and developing your staff.

What Others Have to Say

Markey is an extremely knowledgeable and personable facilitator and coach. Her understanding and application of Psychological Type (as associated with the MBTI tool) makes her one of the Thought Leaders in this field. I find particularly relevant her work on Leadership Style, Cognitive Processes and Archetypes.

She ran a very successful session in the UK for my Type Academy group - a team of senior level consultants - which was very well received. In addition, she provides useful and timely presentations at Type Conferences globally.

There are many people certified to administer and train with the MBTI assessment, but the number of MBTI Master Trainers who are deeply steeped in Type and its effective application to our daily work and personal lives--the list of these people is very short, and Markey Read is up at the top of this list. A rarity in the OD field, Markey is a thought-leader who is able to go as deeply into her subject as her learners need without losing sight of application and practicality. As a long-time trainer and consultant, myself, I'm clear that there are not many trainers/consultants I would send "in my place," but any one of my clients would be lucky to work with Markey Read.

Hile Rutledge,
President & Principal Consultant of OKA, DC

It has been my pleasure to work with Markey on and off for the past 20 years. She is a dynamic trainer and coach who inspires change and draws out the best in everyone. A strategic thinker, Markey naturally focuses on the big picture, future possibilities and new paths forward, always with a strong focus on the client’s core values. Customized, practical plans for growth and development are delivered seemingly without effort, because she is diligent with her up front preparation. Her sessions are always organized, well structured, interactive … and just plain fun! When you see her in action, you recognize that not only is she very good at what she does, but she truly enjoys it as well. Markey’s engaging, creative style and her personal enthusiasm inspire even the most reserved participants. I give Markey my strongest recommendation without hesitation. If you work with her, you will find out why.
