DIFFERENT DOESN’T MEAN WRONG. PERSONALITY, RELATIONSHIP AND POSITIVE ATTITUDES
An interactive Digital Landscape to better understand ourselves and best relate with others
Not only in respect of what happens outside of us, but also what happens within. Here's why Logotel’s sixth Digital Landscape was entitled: Personality differences in times of (un)limited interpersonal space. An introduction to Jung's MBTI theory. An appointment in English, also for our Logotel people in France and Spain.
It was a double experiment, respecting both the topics covered (awareness and diversity) and the technology used. Over 80 people connected via Zoom, a software allowing for the design of an interactive experience from multiple points of view, with surveys, conversation rooms in subgroups and virtual backgrounds. By that mix we were able to manage our conversations with a light irony, which contributed towards making the appointment both smooth and rewarding. In sum, it was an opportunity to reflect on our DNA, both through didactic elements and with moments of discussion.
The Digital Landscape was held by Tristan Rigendinger, Logotel Senior Partner and licensed MBTI Step I and II coach. Reflecting upon the 16 different personalities of the MBTI model offered us an important perspective: “Different doesn’t mean wrong, especially over these complex weeks during which limited distance between people has emerged. Near and far they combine in an alienating mix: quickly we move from moments of unbridgeable distance (deprived of social contact among colleagues and Customers) to an intimacy of which we had no idea (inasmuch as we project ourselves into people's homes during calls and get in touch with their private life)".
Confronting these issues has allowed us to understand how each of us reacts differently to events, focusing our energy, processing the wealth of available information and making decisions about a future that appears uncertain.
Our individual assessment on these issues proved an excellent starting point for understanding more about ourselves - a condition for better relating to others, and developing a positive attitude with our customers, our colleagues and our families. Because social distancing still remains a must, though -on this day- we all felt close again.
