Youth workers will be able to maximize their impact with the children they serve by better understanding how their personality types shape their interactions with others.
The Indiana Youth Institute is hosting a forum that will explore the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator.
Understanding one’s personal style can help individuals maximize their potential, resulting in greater professional and personal success. This forum will allow those who work with children to recognize their potential and reach their goals.
The forum will feature Carol Neary, IYI’s North Central Indiana field representative, who holds certifications for the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. Participants will take an abbreviated test. Neary will then explain how personality types affects energy, information gathering, decision making and working with others.
The forum will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 27, at the Community Mental Health Center Office, 215 E. George St., Batesville, 47006.
As part of IYI’s Youth Worker Café program, the forum is free and lunch will be served, but reservations are required. To make a reservation, email Becky Nobb at email@example.com or call 1-877-967-6263. You can also contact IYI Southeastern Indiana Field Representative Michelle Sanchez at 1-800-498-3219 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Youth Worker Cafés are designed to bring together local youth workers to build relationships and inspire collaborations that will benefit children. This Youth Worker Café is made possible by the collaborative efforts of One Community One Family and IYI.
