Making Sense of Those Assessments

 
Do you cringe or get excited when someone asks you to take a behavioral or personality assessment? Whether you find them painful or joyful, they do provide insightful information for you, your employer and your team. With all the different assessments out there - from Colors to Strengths Finder how do we use them properly? During this interactive and informative talk, Karen Altekruse, MBA, PhD will share the benefits of different assessments; when and how to use assessments; and just as important, how not use them to label yourself and others, or excuse inappropriate behavior. As part of this learning opportunity, attendees are asked to take the free Values in Action assessment (Via Character Strengths) and bring a copy of your results to the session with you.

Take a free assessment to discover your character strengths:
