|Personal Style and Communication||
This course is all about self-discovery. What defines our individuality and personal style? Is our behavior just random, or is it somewhat predictable? We'll use the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator (MBTI) to answer these and lots of other intriguing questions about personality and behavior. The purpose is to understand ourselves better in order to be more effective as individuals and team members. This is required course for Track Two participants.
Mentoring and Networking systems are composed of people who provide one another with information, support, advice, coaching, and practical assistance to accomplish individual and team goals. This program provides guidance and tips on how to establish and participate in mentoring relationships. This is a required program for Track 2 participants.
