The concept of polarities is based on the principle that some problems are inherently unsolvable. Polarities are opposite values which cannot function well independently. Examples are, ‘care for others versus care for self,’ and ‘getting things done versus deepening your learning.’ Your goal is to get the best of both opposites or “poles” while avoiding the limits of each. Completing a Polarity Map allows you to see a more complete system at play represented by the relationship of the two opposing values. As a result of this mapping and coaching, you will have a better understanding of these two “poles” as a partnership, and will better balance this tension in your life and work.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
The MBTI is a simple, well established assessment. This assessment helps people determine their preferences in four areas: extroversion/introversion, sensing/intuition, thinking/feeling, judging/perceiving. If you have never taken the MBTI, this is a broad, overarching assessment, and a nice assessment to use as a group activity with a work team.
