Career Decision-Making Using the MBTI
The Myers Briggs Type Indicator can increase awareness of your personality style to better manage career decisions throughout the course of your career. When selecting, transitioning, or growing your career, understanding personality type can help explain why some careers feel like a good fit and others are a challenge. Your MBTI results can help you understand past careers and select a future career that best suits your personality. Participants will complete the assessment prior to the class and receive their results during the session. If you have previously taken the assessment, please provide your results prior to the class so materials can be prepared.

Introduction to Hostmanship: Customer Service and Leadership Reframed: The Art of Serving Others
"Hostmanship in the art of making people feel welcome. Meetings where genuine hospitality is present and has its origin in that person, that organization or that place that has invited you. Good Hostmanship means understanding the art of serving and realizing how much it enriches our lives."
Jan Gunnarsson, a hospitality industry veteran from Sweden in his book Hostmanship co-authored with Olle Blohm, challenges individuals to reframe their views of customer service and leadership. At its core, Hostmanship invites us to rethink the customer service experience seeing ourselves as connected to the customer as host. This shift transforms the interaction creating a "welcoming attitude" where we are able to share ourselves and our knowledge with our guests in every interaction.
In this introduction to Hostmanship, we will discuss its foundation and principles as well as its application for personal and professional growth. Register.
