Continuing Education for Natural Resource Professionals

Leadership and Communications Advanced (LAC/A)


  • increase participants’ knowledge of Myers-Briggs psychological type, the many facets of each preference and how to apply this knowledge to improve personal effectiveness;

  • develop understanding of self and others’ perceptions of leadership behaviors exhibited by participants through use of a 360-degree assessment tool.

In this workshop, participants will dig deeper into Myers-Briggs psychological type through analysis of the MBTI Step II instrument. The second half of the workshop uses The Leadership Challenge 360-degree assessment tool to provide participants with a comparison of their self-evaluations and the evaluations of supervisors, peers, and people they supervise of leadership behaviors the participants exhibit in five areas: modeling the way, inspiring a shared vision, challenging the process, enabling others to act, and encouraging the heart.

April 1 - 4, 2014

Contact Dr. Steve McMullin for individual training option.

Individual Training Option Description: One-on-one leadership coaching experience; in the coaching set up, you receive personal feedback on your Myers-Briggs Step II profile. Step II looks at 5 pairs of facets within each of the 4 pairs of preferences and provides a lot of clarity for folks who find some inconsistencies in their MBTI preferences. You also receive 360-degree feedback from an instrument that you complete, and which is also completed by your supervisor, people you supervise and some of your coworkers. Leadership Practices Inventory (based on Kouzes and Pozner’s Leadership Challenge) were used in past Advanced LAC workshops, but shifting toward using the Emotional Intelligence tools for the coaching experience; can use either one.

Coaching experience will consist of a series of phone calls discussing the results of your assessments and how to apply what you learn to improve your personal effectiveness. Some information is exchanged electronically (including some assignments you would have as part of the assessments). Being a one-on-one experience, it is a work in progress and can be tailored to individual needs.
