Leadership: Personal Style and Personal Effectiveness

Leaders need to know who they are and what strengths they have in order to be effective. Participants will use three assessments to better understand themselves and others, identifying ways to self-motivate and help motivate those around them — a key skill for leaders of teams and organizations. Participants will self-assess using three profiles: the McClelland Social Work Motives; the InQ, or InQuiry; and the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). They will develop a broad picture of needs, information processing strengths and preferences when gathering information and making decisions. This information allows a leader to encourage diversity of thought and style.
