Personality Mapping-a team-building strategy : (i) May 7-8, 2009 and (ii) June 11-12, 2009

Team chemistry is the most important determinant of team effectiveness. Companies spend millions of Rupees in team building exercises. Yet teams fail to click. Personality differences, inability to respect individual differences in thoughts, goal-orientations etc., are considered the most common factors behind personality clashes that ruin team effectiveness. Can we try to build teams comprising of compatible personalities ? Can we train individuals to understand, tolerate and to respect personality differences in their teams ? Can we map individual personalities using simple tools ?
