MBTI® Users Conference—“Culture Matters” Panel: Macro and Micro Perspectives

27 Dec 2016

For the second year in a row, I was asked to serve as moderator for the conference-wide panel session. Now that I have a little experience with panels under my belt, I was a bit more open to the idea of being a moderator. It helps to remind myself that the moderator’s key task is to encourage the audience to pay attention to the panelists and not himself. I just had to introduce the topic and the panelists and then keep things moving along. In the end of course, that is all easier said than done...

MBTI® Users Conference—From Diversity to Inclusion to Engagement

08 Nov 2016

There was a short break in between the keynote and the first breakout session of the day. I planned my day out the night before and knew I wanted to attend Dr. Pete Hammett’s session. Dr. Hammett is the director of HR at Oklahoma Gas & Energy. In his session he asked us to consider how personality type can influence a culture of inclusion.

I’m Next!

19 Jan 2016

Day 2 of the MBTI® Users Conference is filled with so much wonderful content. It was great to hear about how Procter & Gamble started as a company in 1837 making soap and candles, and today it does so much more—while encouraging openness and diversity along the way. DiversityInc lists P&G as one of the top 10 companies for global diversity, and HRC gives it a perfect score of 100. The MBTI assessment is a big part of its “honoring differences” approach. While I have enjoyed attending ...
