How to build great teams by explicitly using Personality Profiles (MBTI, Archetypes, DISC)? | [Joe T.]
You’re doing great work – kudos. My question is around Jungian archetypes. I’m a fan of Myers Briggs to help people understand themselves and team dynamics. I’m at a stage now however when I’m interested in what drives that minority of people who are going to create an impact on the world. I think that’s only possible if we assemble self aware teams who double down on their individual identity type (anybody can get better at anything, but anybody can’t be world class at anything – our innate abilities and thinking styles lay the foundations for where we can be being exceptional). I think the archetypes are more profound and inspiring for this line of thought.
Do you know of any teams that have been created based on archetype and whether they have been effective? I’m specifically interested in teams of 10-15 in the entrepreneurial space (though any example would be greatly appreciated, as would any recommendations for learning more about Jungian dynamics in contemporary teams).
All the best
