Leveraging Employee-Focused Leadership With Personality Testing

More than just a psychological evaluation, personality tests like the Myers-Briggs are being recognized in the business world as valuable tools that allow managers to more effectively understand and lead their staff. Not only that, teaching your staff to be keenly read people and be aware of different personality traits can help them serve clients better both on the phone and in person. Our team will provide an overview of the different personality tests available to business and show you how you can benefit from their adoption.

Part two, moderated by Kristen Carroll of The LMC Group and co-chair of our Education Committee, is dedicated to “human capital,” or your staff. The session—featuring highly respected industry veteran Kristina Bouweiri of Reston Limousine and Christina Davis of The LMC Group, author of our monthly HR Coach column—will explore areas such as preparing for the sudden loss or death of a key employee, or dealing with the departure of multiple employees in a short period of time, either of which could seriously damage a company of any size depending on the circumstances. Other topics include legal issues such as safety-related lawsuits stemming from car accidents to on-the-job injuries; understanding and effectively dealing with discrimination, racism, and religious protections; and everyone’s favorite: labor-related challenges and lawsuits on everything from overtime wage claims to EEOC rules. This seminar will tackle those thorny and often frustrating topics with proven strategies, balanced solutions, and a bit of humor.
