It is strongly recommended that participants purchase StrengthsFinder 2.0 by Tom Rath. There is a code at the back of the book to take the online assessment to identify their top 5 strengths as defined by Gallup’s research. You may also purchase a code online to receive your top 5 report by clicking here. Participants will gain the most if they know their MBTI type.
Several weeks prior to the meeting, participants will receive articles that compare and contrast the two instruments. Meeting discussion will allow time for participants to reflect on their own results, and for the group to share insight they’ve gained from the readings.

"Type" as we know it, has revolved around measurement using the MBTI. But type itself is so much more than that. What we call 'functions' are our GIFTS as humans. They are essential and deep, yet abstract. Together we can improve our understanding of their strength and importance, and that could be a major benefit, not just for us practitioners, but for all people.
