Public Allies is a national nonprofit on a mission to create a just and equitable society and the diverse leadership to sustain it. Earlier this year, their DC chapter reached out to M Powered Strategies in search of qualified experts to deliver a high impact Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) group leadership workshop. MPS staffers Andrew MacDonald and Jimmy Church, both professionally certified MBTI practitioners, were quick to volunteer. In early May they conducted an intense four-hour workshop for nearly thirty aspiring leaders. The energy in the room was high and the participants were so engaged they skipped the regularly scheduled recess, choosing instead to hunker down with the material. The aim of MBTI workshops is to increase awareness about each individual’s personality type, as well as the full range and variety of types, which in turn fosters patience and understanding.
Public Allies’ Program Manager/Training Lead thrilled with the way the session went.
“The wonderful balance between content and process in your workshop design was engaging and effective. Your knowledge and competency pushed our understanding of ourselves and our group… There wasn’t a question that you were not prepared to answer. I wasn’t sure if our group this year would have an opportunity to participate in such a beneficial workshop. I am thankful [for] your willingness to volunteer your time for our group.”
Jimmy and Andrew were equally enthusiastic about the experience. According to Jimmy, the Public Allies participants were “smart, fun, capable and eager to bring about positive change.”
