Extraversion and Introversion Sensing and Intuition Thinking and Feeling Judging and Perceiving
We are extraverting when we: Talk to other people Listen to what someone is saying Cook dinner, or make a cup of coffee Work on a car We are introverting when we: Read a book Think about what we want to say or do Are aware of how we feel Think through a problem so that we understand it
We are “Sensing” when we: Taste food Notice a stoplight has changed Memorize a speech Follow steps in a plan We are “Intuitive” when we: Come up with a new way of doing things Think about future implications for a current action Perceive underlying meaning in what people say or do See the big picture
Thinking Mode Research a product, buy the best one Do “The Right Thing”, whether we like it or not Choose not to buy blue shirt, we already have 2 Establish guidelines to follow for performing tasks Feeling Mode Buy something because we like it Refrain from telling someone something, in case of upset Decide not to take job, don’t like work environment Decided to move to be close to someone we care about
We are using Judging when we: Make a list of things to do Schedule things in advance Form and express judgments Bring closure to an issue so that we can move on We are using Perceiving when we: Postpone decisions to see what other options are available Act spontaneously Decide what to do as we do it, rather than forming a plan ahead of time Do things at the last minute
What’s Important To You
Determine appropriate preference in situations (i.e., Feeling & Thinking) Recognizing others’ behaviors as a preference rather than an annoyance or flaw
Grade level teams and/ or committee teams
The Nature of Teams “The word team usually refers to a small task group in which the members have a common purpose, interdependent roles, and complementary skills” (Yukl, 2010, p. 333).
Emphasize common interests and values Use ceremonies and rituals Use symbols to develop identification with the group Encourage and facilitate social interaction
Tell people about group activities and achievements Conduct process analysis sessions Conduct alignment sessions Increase incentives for mutual cooperation
How will you use this information to improve your leadership skills? Will this be you when it comes to leadership? I refuse to help!!
Guidelines for self-development of leadership skills
Develop a personal vision of career objectives. Seek appropriate mentors. Seek challenging assignments. Improve self-monitoring.
Seek relevant feedback. Learn from mistakes. Learn to view events from multiple perspectives. Be skeptical of easy answers.
