This is the 3rd of four courses on the Myers-Briggs / Jungian psychological types.
In this course, we explore using the 16-types framework for coaching. You don’t need to be an actual coach, counselor or such. You can “self-coach”. Really anyone can benefit from the exercises and ideas here.
The name of the course is TLC. That means Tender Loving Care: using type wisely is a great way to better care for ourselves and others. TLC also means Teams, Leadership, and Change. Foremost, type is a developmental model, so let’s start growing!
The course unfolds in steps. After some coaching basic concepts, we look at the 4 temperaments, each of which comes with 4 interaction styles, for 16 types total. This holistic approach to type focuses on people’s needs, values, talents, and typical behaviors.
Next, we look at the 9 self-leadership behaviors: Trust, Caring, Openness, Learning, Speaking Up, Feedback, Teamwork, Managing Dilemmas, and Creativity. These link to the 9 points on the enneagram. You will find type-specific advice here. This might all sound like a lot, but remember you can start by using the downloadable reference sheets and look up advice.
There’s more! We walk through 9 in-depth coaching exercises you can use for yourself and others to encourage growth. Each comes with a step-by-step, how-to worksheet. There are activities for priming the functions, cultivating a growth mindset, taking people through a coaching sequence, hosting a creative writing exercise, fostering new ideas in organizations, managing energy dynamics, navigating the "neurotic boundary", and steering toward healthier, more effective behaviors in general.
Finally, we go deeper into Jung, his general theory of the psyche such as persona and shadow, the Transcendent function, and “The Magic Diamond” approach to encouraging growth.
Like the other courses in this series, you get 30 years of expertise plus reflections by professional coaches and consultants. Materials are based on many years of facilitating workshops as well as brain imaging research. This toolbox course has enough resources to keep you busy for years to come!
Who this course is for:
- Those who want to coach, counsel or consult for others.
- Anyone who wants to challenge themselves with activities to stretch their comfort and flow zones.
- Anyone in a managerial or leadership position.
- People interested in frameworks that complement Jung: temperament, interaction styles, the enneagram, and so on.
- Students of “type” who want to get serious and apply the ideas rather than nitpick endlessly about them.
- Those who want to work from Jung’s core concept of the Transcendent function to overcome bias and one-sidedness.
