Myers Briggs: Who are you?

Typically, leaders are seen as people with power – president, dean, maybe even mom? Well, it turns out that everyone can be and ought to be a leader. As college students you have this unique power and this workshop will show you how to use it for good! This interactive presentation will help you learn how you can be a leader in your personal and professional life.

Improvisational Leadership
