Are You Leading a Feeling Team?


In leadership and management, the MBTI preferences of thinking and judging are over-represented. (That’s statistically over-represented, not a value judgment.)

Leaders who take the time to look at the ‘people consequences’ of their decisions and address those concerns when communicating with their team or organization are way more successful than those who don’t.

My observation with change failures? The biggest misses in getting employee buy-in with new organizational initiatives stems from leaders ignoring of the MBTI feeling function.

Here are thirteen words that are music to a person with the feeling preference:

  1. Heart
  2. Subjective
  3. Relative worth
  4. Connections
  5. Warmth
  6. Affirming
  7. Appreciate
  8. Empathize
  9. Harmony
  10. Tactful
  11. Compassionate
  12. Values
  13. Caring
