MBTI (Myers Briggs)

One of my favorites is the MBTI (Myers-Briggs). I learned about this profile when I got my first Leadership Coaching at the age of 19 and realized that I need to be a person who leads others and helping them to develop their potential and that was why I felt so different around my friends at that age. MBTI is an introspective self-report questionnaire designed to indicate psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is the most popular personality assessment tool.


CliftonStrengths assessment is very helpful in identifying the areas where you have the greatest potential for building strength and how to use those strengths. It’s important to focus on your strengths in your career rather than trying to improve your weaknesses. You’ll be more energized and fulfilled if you are working in your strengths which is why this is one of my favorite personality assessments.  This is a must for all job searchers and entrepreneurs.

Insights Discovery begins by helping you to uncover who you are and how you interact with others. Every Discovery Personal Profile provides information on an individual’s strengths and weaknesses, communications style, and their value to a team.
