Breckenridge Type Indicator™ (BTI™)
The BTI™ is a psychometrically validated assessment tool designed to help identify key elements of managers’ and staff members’ personality using the nine Enneagram personality types. The BTI™ can be used for both personal and professional applications, but it is especially effective when used as the basis coaching, leadership development, or teambuilding exercises. Organizations are collective-cultural entities that are led, managed, and changed one person at a time. Studies have shown that people who possess emotional intelligence and self-knowledge are often twice as successful as those who possess only high levels of intellectual intelligence. A person’s level of self-awareness and self-control is an indicator of their openness to feedback, change, and their ability to succeed professionally, especially when under stress. In your professional life, a better understanding of your personality using the BTI™ will help identify decision-making bias and predictable errors in judgment in both strategic and tactical issues. When used in your personal life, the BTI™ allows you to identify underlying patterns of behavior that frustrate and undermine healthy relationships with friends and family members.
Business Applications - The BTI™ is typically used by proactive managers and staff members who want to take charge of their careers and become even higher-performers. People who get the most from the BTI™ are those who use it to achieve higher levels of:
- Professional competency in decision-making and problem solving
- Personal competency in processing conflict and communicating more effectively
- Social competency in teamwork and more effective group dynamics
