Invisible Diversity…..Increasing Our Effectiveness by Understanding Behavior Styles
In an interactive conversation, Bruce Leamon will differentiate personality and behavior. The session will leave meeting participants with insights and tools to view other people as “different” vs “difficult”. While this discussion is especially relevant for organizational professionals, it is equally useful for parents, spouses, and any person who knows another person!
Bruce Leamon brings more than 30 years of executive experience in global businesses. In addition, he has served as a faculty member and administrator at two private universities. Bruce is one of a small number of professional coaches certified by the International Coach Federation as a Master Certified Executive Coach (MCC).
