Embrace the guide within

A Masterclass on Enhancing Leadership Impact with the Inferior Function July 28, 2021, 2 - 6 p.m.

In the dynamic system of Typology, Carl Jung referred to the Fourth or the Inferior function as ‘the royal road to the unconscious.’ The Inferior function is also referred to as ‘the guide within’. While its presence can be felt in a disruptive way during times of stress, fatigue and illness, it also plays a critical role in regulating our energy and bringing balance to our personality.

This information can be particularly helpful to leaders who, under stress and challenge, overshoot into unhelpful behaviours that lead to business and personal derailment.

Practitioners can support leaders make sense of their unproductive behaviour under stress with the help of insights from their MBTI personality Type and their Inferior function, and devise strategies that can enhance their resilience and psychological well-being. 

Understanding and accessing the Inferior function intentionally can help leaders develop greater versatility in their leadership styles. 

Masterclass Objectives: 

Participants in this master class will learn how they can assist their clients in exploring the following aspects of the Inferior function:

  • Revisit Type dynamics and the hierarchy of the four mental functions 
  • Explore conscious use of the inferior function in intentional activities and in non-work activities 
  • Recognise when it is likely to erupt unintentionally and what events trigger it 
  • Reflect on how they can return to their resourceful states and what can facilitate this 
  • Appreciate the contribution the inferior function experiences make to their psychological well-being. 
  • The workshop will offer participants a unique opportunity to interact, learn and exchange experiences with other MBTI® certified practitioners who are applying MBTI personality type in leadership development and coaching.
