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

Wednesday, June 14, 2017
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Have you ever wondered how your personality preferences shape the way you interact with other people? If you prefer quiet time alone to interacting with a group, how do you respond when you’re assigned a team project? What if you like to be highly organized with checklists but colleagues prefer to fly by the seat of their 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, whether in the classroom or beyond. Using an assessment based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, this workshop will help you apply your understanding to your interactions with others.

Detailed instructions for the assessment available upon registration; all participants must register and complete the assessment by Friday, June 9 at 5 p.m. This workshop is open only to current graduate students and postdocs.

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