The Typecoach Verifier tool is an online tool which enables participants to identify and understand their natural personality type in relation to Carl Jung’s theory of personality type (1971):

  • Extraversion or Introversion
  • Sensing or Intuitive
  • Thinking or Feeling
  • Judging or Perceiving

To use our skills and abilities thoughtfully, deliberately, and effectively we must first understand who we are, what impact we make, and how to modify that impact appropriately to any situation. Key to this is developing a deep sense of self-awareness and self-management.

We must develop our emotional intelligence to manage our own reactions and to communicate and influence effectively with others. We must develop the ability to discover and mobilize energy in others; to handle ours and others emotions and discomfort.

The TypeCoach verifier tool is an interactive experience – participants watch short videos explaining the different types and then complete an online questionnaire, completed in 20 – 25 minutes. This enables participants to identify their ‘best-fit’ personality type, and provides a highly practical 8-page report to support effective application of ‘Type’ in the workplace. On completion of the tool participants also have access to a range of online tools to support them in the application of their learning including coaching videos, and tips for working with and communicating with other ‘types’.

Here at the South West Leadership Academy we are passionate about the impact this tool can have; in enabling participants to gain valuable insights into their personality type; supporting individuals to maximize their natural strengths, minimize typical challenge areas as well as identifying stress triggers and understanding their natural responses.

This online tool has a new and modern approach using the 3 Type Coach Programmes:

The Type Coach Verifier

A 20 minute interactive video-based experience to learn about the four key aspects of personality type.  The user determines their own personality type (eg, ESTJ) and can access a 5 page report.

Coaching Videos

Engaging video modules that are unique to each personality type cover the top 5 ways to maximise your career potential, based on the natural strengths and challenges of each type.  Each of the 5 modules is 4-7 minutes long and collectively is the equivalent to a series of coaching sessions.

Type-to-Type Tool

This interactive tool is an ongoing resource, providing top ten advice for working with any individual based on the unique combination of personality types (ENTJ with INFP for example).  When teams complete the Verifier the results are populated into the Type-to-Type tool, providing the entire team with access to the advice on how best to interact with one another.
