Other topics include:

The afternoon session Introduction to the MBTI and Teams will help you understand your Myers-Briggs Type Indicator results and the relationship of those results to your contributions and effectiveness as a team member. As a member of a team, committee, task force, or other group, you will find the material helpful in understanding your own leadership style, your influence on teammates, how you contribute to team functioning, and how to maximize your effectiveness.
