Myers-Briggs Certification Program



Re: Myers-Briggs Certification Program

I'm writing to ask for approval to attend the Myers-Briggs Certification Program on [program date]. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® assessment is the most widely used personality assessment in the world for organizations (including 89 of the Fortune 100 companies), improving the performance of people, teams, and organizations by helping individuals better understand themselves and others with a common language to explain differences.

By attending this certification program, I'll be able to administer & interpret the MBTI assessment for our employees, and spread this knowledge to enhance our current [employee development programs, leadership development programs, team building sessions, conflict management training, team processes, recruitment initiatives, retention initiatives, change management initiatives, employee engagement programs]. The total cost for the program is only $ XXXX , and 83% of MBTI customers say the payback period on their investment in the tool is 6 months or less. If I attend the program in Gainesville the cost goes down to as low as $ XXXX .

In particular, I'd like to focus on finding solutions or best practices that would benefit these initiatives within our department:

[add project name or initiative]
[add project name or initiative]
[add project name or initiative]

In addition, the networking during the certification session offers the chance to problem solve, discuss trends and similar challenges, and share best-practices around getting the most from the MBTI® assessment.

Here's an approximate breakdown of the certification costs:

Registration Fee: $ XXXX

Total: $ XXX

As has been the case for many others, I'm confident becoming certified to properly interpret and implement many aspects of the Myers-Briggs framework will provide incredible value to our business.

I'm currently working on ways to reduce the expenses, including hotel discounts, meals with vendors, and more. I'll also submit a post-training report that will include an executive summary, a summary of major takeaways, and a set of recommendations to maximize our investment in the Myers-Briggs tool for [company name].

Thank you for considering this request to invest in the future of our business. I look forward to your reply.
