Managing a team of employees can be tough, and it becomes even harder when your workforce is diverse. Different people respond differently to motivational methods and – if you want to sucessfully encourage all of your staff – you will need to learn what motivates different personality types and why. However, as daunting as that sounds, it’s easier than you think.
Even the most accomplished leader can struggle to manage a diverse team of employees.
Isabel Briggs Myers identified 16 personality types, with the help of psychologist Carl Jung’s theories, based on the preferences of different individuals. It’s safe to assume that your team members are either an introvert or extrovert, judgemental or perceptive, left brain or right brain. By identifying their main personality traits, you’ll find it easier to identify their individual needs.
