LEA 112: Leadership Training – Building a Transformational Communication Toolbox for a Future Forward College

This interactive course presented by Amanda Sinodis & Sharon McMillian showed us how awareness of personality type could help us to enhance enjoyment, productivity, and teamwork in the workplace.

In order to participate in this workshop, I had to provide my Myers Briggs personality type code to Sharon McMillian at the time of registration. While it was possible to contact the ILC (independent learning center) to arrange for a personality type appointment, I had already taken this test as part of professional development with our department. I am an INTJ (mastermind classification), with a slightly introverted, highly Intuitive, normal Thinking, and highly Judging personality.

I found this session nicely placed and easy to understand. However, I felt that this presentation was, while well-presented, very closely styled after the notes. This two hour presentation could have had us read the powerpoint presentations individually, and then had a group session with 4 times as many people going over the talking portions in 20-30 minutes. I’d really have liked this material to have been presented in an online format rather than seated sessions offered in limited settings of time and day.

If I could not see these sessions in online capacity, I’d really like to see these offered in a professional development session in a campus-wide capacity rather than a limited setting of time and day during the semester.
