Title: Just My Type: Harnessing the Power of Personality
Lead Presenter: Kristen Young
Date: October 23, 2022    Time: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Room: D136, OCC
Abstract: It's not all about me...but, it kind of is. Effective communication is at the heart of building and maintaining strong relationships with our students and colleagues. In this interactive workshop, we will utilize our Myers-Briggs Personality Type (MBTI)®, to take a deep dive into our individual preferences and examine how they influence our interactions. Then, using case studies, we will apply techniques for "flexing" styles and traits outside our preferred approach to find common ground. Acknowledging our preferences and others, we can better understand why we communicate the way we do and are mindful of how others speak and act towards us. The results can be impressive - improved communication and collaboration - and more effective advising strategies. (If you don't know your Type, please complete a free assessment on the 16 Personalities website.
