"Understanding Personality Styles"
Nick Palkowski
Youth Leadership Speaker

Understanding Personality Styles is an in-depth session on how to not just understand your personality style, but others as well. The goal is to “lean in” to the personality style of the team or family member you’re communicating with. So many times, we learn our style and expect everyone to communicate to us in our style. Great communication doesn’t work that way.

"#IAmAg, are you?"
Rochelle Ripp Schnadt
Badgerland Financial

We believe the future of agriculture is bright! Those not involved might think it’s “dirty work” and have different perceptions based on what they see in the news and online. Together we can work to change that using tools that connect all of us, found in your pocket. Join me to learn how to positively share and show the great news and hard work in agriculture on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
