HBDI: Thinking Styles with Dr. Jim Friedman (September 25, 2013–Registration Deadline: Sept 11th!)

Are you more emotional, analytical, structural or strategic?  After answering several simple questions on the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument assessment online, each student will receive a comprehensive Profile Package containing his or her HBDI® Profile results.  This profile breaks down the individual parts of your brain and the ways in which you utilize these different parts.  Through the September 25th workshop with Dr. Friedman, head of the Entrepreneurship department and certified HBDI facilitator, you will learn more about how you personally think and work best and how to better work with others who may not share the same thinking styles.

More than 50 years after the Civil Rights Act, people are still debating the role of gender in leadership effectiveness and emergence. Using the best selling book by Sheryl Sandberg, Lean In? Women & Leadership, this workshop will focus on an in-depth conversation and debate on whether there are important gender differences in leadership–an essential discussion that important for everyone to have. Participants will receive a copy of the book Lean In to read prior to the workshop.

Strengthsfinder: Discovering Your Strengths Based Leadership (Date TBA)

Developing as a leader might be one of the most significant and important opportunities you will have as a student. Chances are, at some point in your life, you will have the opportunity to lead; in fact, you may already have served as a leader several times. Learning and emerging as a leader is a process that takes knowledge, skills, and practice, and it requires you to be intentional in how you use your talents.

StrengthsFinder workshop participants debrief after discussing the results of their strengths-based leadership assessment.

Students experience group dynamics and leadership through the dramatic setting of a Mount Everest expedition while playing one of five roles on a team of hikers. As they attempt a climb to the summit, students must reach individual goals while also sharing information to maximize group achievement” Source:
