Topic: Type Motivators & Saboteurs: The Angels & Demons on Your Shoulders
Type, popularized by the MBTI, describes many of the positive motivators that drive our careers, relationships and passions. However, we develop other habits of mind to meet our needs for independence, acceptance and security. Known as ‘saboteurs’, those same drivers are what we go to for efficiency and to get our needs met. When we do, we can become our own worst enemies. Add stress to the mix and the results are not as anticipated. And what happens when people with different ‘saboteurs’ interact? We can set off other people, especially if we are at odds with each other. Working with the vocabulary of the saboteurs’ framework adds richness to our understanding of how type opposites clash when they see the world differently, and practical pathways to more productive encounters.
Join our presenters Jane Kise, Ed.D. and Ann Czajka Holm, MS PCC CPCC, for the keynote address they delivered at the Australian Type Conference in October. Hear their research about the connection between personality type and a Saboteur Profile, as described by Shirzad Chamine in Positive Intelligence.
