"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.
