You have good people working for you. Keep their well-being high and they’ll be more satisfied in their jobs, more committed to your company, less likely to leave, and more likely to help co-workers.
All of this helps company performance.
Employees with higher well-being are:
|more likely to recommend their organization as a good place to work.1

Research shows: Manager-employee relationships are critical to employee well-being and engagement
Research shows that an employee’s relationship with their manager has an especially large effect on their well-being.2
The problem is—not all managers are skilled at maintaining relationships. They might not know the best way to communicate with their employees and give them what they need.
Why? Because different people need different things to have a great relationship. That’s where the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) can help.
Understanding personality differences can:
- Foster deeper relationships between managers and employees
- Help both people communicate with each other better
- Improve understanding of differences
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator helps people connect. And better relationships are built on connection.

Two routes to better manager relationships and employee well-being:
Run your own training for your managers by getting MBTI® certified
By getting MBTI certified, you can use your training to help your managers foster better relationships, be better leaders, and therefore help improve overall employee well-being. You can coach individuals, run team workshops, and help your organization perform better all around. Our certification program will give you everything you need to plan and deliver a workshop to help improve well-being.
The virtual delivery was seamless and the availability of (free) virtual support materials for practitioners is also excellent. Once you pass the exam you are ready to hit the ground running!

Invest in a workshop for your managers (or managers and their teams)
If you’re looking for an instant impact for your employees, consider this virtual workshop facilitated by an expert consultant. Participants learn their own MBTI personality type, and then apply type to better appreciate differences in how to communicate and make decisions. Each workshop includes an individual action plan for participants to leverage their learnings.
The session armed us with an invaluable tool to be more effective in achieving our organizational goals. We’re better able to move forward as a team thanks to the insights we gained. In fact, we found it so helpful we’re looking at doing a similar workshop with employees soon.
