How Do You Lead People Who Are Not Like You? Myers-Briggs and Leadership

Wednesday, May 25, 2016
12:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Have you ever wondered how your personality shapes the way you interact with other people? Do you prefer quiet time alone or interacting with a lot of people? Do you like to be highly organized or fly by the seat of your pants? This interactive workshop will help you learn not only about your own behaviors and preferences but also how people with different personality types might perceive those behaviors and preferences, impacting your effectiveness as a leader. Using an assessment based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, this workshop, facilitated by Shelly Hoover-Plonk, Ed.D., will help you apply your understanding to your interactions with others.

The registration deadline for this workshop has passed.

Detailed instructions for the assessment available upon registration; all participants must register and complete the assessment by Friday, May 20 at 5 p.m. This workshop is open only to current graduate students and postdocs.

Lunch will be served; please bring your own beverage to enjoy.
