Values Based Leadership, (Professor Harry Kraemer)
Personality type preferences describe the core of who people are. The focus in this session is for participants to understand the concept of personality type, to know more about their individual type preferences, and to explore ways to develop their individual personality types. A key tenet of the session is that individual leader development parallels the individual development of personality type. Participants will look closely at how they focus and direct energy, take in information, make decisions, and structure priorities. In addition, the session will help build a solid understanding of key communication and influencing skills needed to accomplish team and organizational goals.
