Knowing me, knowing you

Last night was the last of the WiSE UP series. It was a two hour workshop on Myers Briggs Type Indicators (MBTI). MBTI is a framework to understand your (and other people’s) preferences in operating (whether work or play). The evening was led by Geraint Wyn Story (even though it was his birthday…). It was really enjoyable and I hope people got a lot out of it. I confess to previous knowledge (and fondness) of MBTI. In fact, a couple of years ago I wrote four blog posts on its use and introducing the four dichotomies that make up the 16 personality types, hope you enjoy them:

To list or not to list?

Where do you get your energy from?

Big picture or eye for detail?

How do you make decisions?

We have to start somewhere…

On Tuesday the 2nd October I, and 40 other women, arrived at Lucy Cavendish for the first in a series of five WiSE UP career focused workshops. The idea is that through the course of the series, by coming to know ourselves a little better, recognising our skill set, learning to put our best foot forward and knowing how to get the best out of others we can all take stock and consider our options…….

For some this may be looking for a new job and for others it may involve switching careers altogether, taking the first step back into work after a break or indeed making the most of our current position. The world is our oyster apparently!

The evening began with caffeine and cake (is there any other way to start?!) and an engaging networking challenge which involved finding our place along the spectrum of careers in the group from ‘just starting out’ to ‘hey I might just have cracked this career malarkey’ (my personal viewpoint).  The noise levels soon revealed that the group were keen to share experiences (!) and learn a few tips from others along the way.

The workshop itself was based around the concept of Career Anchors, a self assessment tool by Edgar Schein. Through a mix of interviews with a buddy and a personal questionnaire, the purpose was to identify how our motives, competencies and values relate to our career choices.
