Your Values are Showing!

Posted on January 22, 2007. Filed under: Blog--All categories, Management development |

Thanks to Cathy Brewster and the folks at Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC) for inviting me to be part of their January 2007 Professional Development Days.

My program, “Improving Your Leadership Fitness,” focused on understanding the six values and attitudes that drive us in our decision making. We spent a terrific 90 minutes going over the groundwork for values research and then learning the unique characteristics of each value. Then we practiced applying what we’d learned to various individuals in the workplace and their response to situations we presented.

The program was fun–primarily because the TMCC staff in the room were very interested in improving their effectiveness with their peers, coworkers, and supervisors. The program was important because the participants gained some real understanding of people they work with and learned why they have certain types of conflicts with the same people over and over. They also understood why they just clicked with some people right off the bat!

Kudos to all the TMCC staff–especially to Cathy and Queency for their help in arranging the program and making it a smashing success!
