SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Small teams are likely feeling more disconnected than ever being away from colleagues, Zoom-fatigued and potentially dealing with survivor guilt from layoffs or furloughs. But now virtual teams can connect more effectively with MBTIonline Teams from The Myers-Briggs Company for better motivation, cohesiveness, stress management and decision-making.

Building the foundation for better teamwork

“Teams work smoothly when people understand themselves and one another and trust each other. Even Google’s project Aristotle found that trust is the most important factor to successful teams,” says Jeff Hayes, President and CEO of The Myers-Briggs Company.

“By comparing their preferred approaches to their teammates’, MBTIonline Teams improves understanding and trust between team members, for higher self-awareness and stronger connections. And teams work together better.”

Team dynamics and team type

Small teams get visualizations, guided prompts and more to help them understand why their unique team functions the way it does. Sherrie Haynie, Director of US Professional Services, explains that “once teams get to the why of their inner workings, they can take actionable steps to utilize strengths and mitigate blind spots. It’s like having a visual map and explicit travel directions to higher team performance.”

In addition to individual and team personality insights, with MBTIonline Teams each person on the team gets access to a library of self-paced courses. These courses help individuals hone skills in areas critical to high-performing teams:

  • Motivation
  • Getting along with others
  • Stress management
  • Decision making
