Expressing Yourself: Improving Communication by Understanding Preferences - Cancelled

Tuesday, September 22, 2020
2:00 pm to 3:30 pm

Have you ever wondered why a colleague always wants an agenda to prepare for a meeting or needs to know the big picture in order to work on the small details of a project? Using a free online assessment to explore your Myers-Briggs personality preferences, we’ll focus on how you can leverage a better understanding of others’ preferences to improve your communication with your research colleagues. Dr. Hugh Crumley, Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs, and Dr. Melissa Bostrom, Assistant Dean for Graduate Student Professional Development, both MBTI-certified facilitators, lead the workshop. Zoom meeting details will be shared with registrants.

In preparation for the workshop,

  1. Complete the free 16Personalities assessment
  2. Report your results by Friday, September 18, 2020 at 11:59 pm.

To facilitate small-group discussion, workshop size is limited to 25 participants. Because space is limited, please do not register unless you are sure you can attend. This workshop will be highly interactive and require that you have video and audio enabled to participate.

This workshop is part of the Mentoring and Communication Series, co-sponsored by The Graduate School and the Office of Postdoctoral Services. Questions? Contact The Graduate School's professional development team at
