Assessing Leadership Styles

October 17, 2011
9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Kellogg Center, MSU

Fellows will debrief and interpret the Myers-Briggs Type Inventory (MBTI) and examine how different styles and behaviors can conflict with individual and organizational goals. We will examine the question of how personality preferences and types influence the meaning that we bring to the process of change and explore how different styles and behaviors can impact various work settings. In addition, we will explore current knowledge and conditions that support collaborative learning teams. Guided discussion will help participants consider some explicit supports and expectations that can help collaborative learning teams to improve organizational outcomes.
