Understanding more about your personality type helps with understanding others, which leads to better management of relationships, which helps all of us collaborate to get the job done.
But lawyers work within an adversarial system that does not always value relationship. Are we different from everyone else? Find out in this interactive workshop with Kirstin Lund, of Collaboration School, and Jacinta Gallant, of Innovation for Lawyers.
We will start with you! You will complete your own personality type assessment with Kirstin, who is a certified assessor in the Myers Briggs Type Inventory. Then, in each day of our workshop, we will learn together about the various dimensions of personality type, and how they interact in conflict situations. You will learn about others' types, and discover whether lawyers have a "type" after all.
Throughout the Workshop, you will learn tips and tools for managing conflict with an understanding of the types involved.
Kirstin will send a link for each participant to complete the MBTI assessment. Then we will meet over two conseicutive Mondays to learn together about type and lawyering.
