March 28, 2008 - PRLog -- Psychometrics Canada announced it will be hosting a bilingual, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Professional Development Conference, the first event of its kind to be held in North America.

On October 30-31, 2008 professionals from across North America will go to Ottawa to learn about improving organizational and employee performance through a better understanding of personality type.

"This is an exciting year for conference attendees, because there will be sessions in both English and French. We have experts from across North America and also France sharing their knowledge.  With the help of the MBTI instrument managers can better understand themselves and their staff, allowing them to improve communication, employee engagement and motivation. This leads to higher performance and employee retention” says Mark Fitzsimmons, Managing Director of Psychometrics Canada Ltd.

As companies struggle with employee retention in today’s labor market there has been an increased demand for staff development programs. More and more companies in North America have realized that understanding personality is important for developing current staff.

The MBTI tool is a powerful and versatile, indicator of personality type that is used throughout the world in a variety of languages for individual, group and organizational development. People attending the conference will learn to use the tool for team building, career direction, leadership development and conflict management.
