Tuesday, Oct. 24 | 6 - 7 p.m. | KSC 313

How does your personality help you lead? Take a FREE Myers-Briggs personality assessment and learn from our certified MBTI instructor what your assessment means.  You will learn the impact of your personal preferences on group dynamics and be better equipped to empower your team. Effective leaders take time to become aware of different leadership preferences. This allows them to best support their team and accomplish goals. Space for this event is very limited!


Wednesday, Oct. 25 | 2 - 5 p.m. | KSC 310AB

Self-care is a must for all leaders! If you aren't at your best, you can't be your best for those that are counting on you. Take time for yourself to meet with therapy dogs, receive a massage, color and indulge in a sweet treat. We'll also have a quiet space set up for yoga, meditation and other relaxing activities.
