You MAY realize these things. It's not easy. Like so much else, it takes

I cannot tell you how often I've been with a group of managers or
employees and I've heard something like. > Ya, we went through that Myers
Briggs stuff at our managers retreat, but it didn't do any good. We still
operate the same way with each other...

When I ask if they bring the materials with them at their next managers
meeting to use as a reminder, or if they as a group made plans on how they
would practice and implement their new learning, etc., I'm look at as if I
have two heads!!!! (I may have)
