Only 16 Types?
You can’t fit me in a box!
It’s true, we’re all unique snowflakes, but that worldview doesn’t help us understand ourselves, or one another, any better. The 16 personality types identified in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) are shortcuts to understanding how our brains are wired. Know your type—know yourself better, know others’ types—know them better.
16 Boxes gives your employees in-depth insight about their personalities so you can resolve conflicts, identify weaknesses, harness strengths, grow talent, improve communication, and develop leaders.
Research shows that today’s employees value culture over salary—16 Boxes gives you the tools to create a workplace where people are valued.
How We Help
Understanding your culture and people are the first steps to workplace improvement. We survey your staff to discover how they feel about the current environment, then use the MBTI Assessment to determine their individual personality types.
Through exercises and education, your staff members learn how to be the best version of themselves and appreciate the differences in their teammates. The measurable results: deeper relationships, stronger communication, increased effectiveness, greater retention, and a happier workplace.
Lastly, we work with you to develop tools and systems to maintain the healthy changes we’ve identified in steps one and two, making sure you can both bring new people into your improved culture—and pass it on to the next generation. We will survey your staff once more, giving you a quantifiable measure of how 16 Boxes has impacted your culture.
