How Personality Assessments Can Make You a Pioneering Leader
You know those quizzes that randomly show up on our social media feeds that inevitably draw us in? They reveal incredibly important information about you like, "Which color matches your personality?" or "Which pizza topping best describes you?" While those quizzes are just fun and games, there IS an underlying truth to them: we all want to know what makes us unique. We continue this month’s conversation on confident leadership by exploring the world of “assessments,” what they mean in the grown-up world, and learning how they can be used to help you be the best leader you can be. Alli Worthington, speaker, author, coach, and entrepreneur who cofounded the Blissdom Conference, discusses how using popular personality assessments to tap into your personality will help you discover and utilize your most effective leadership style.
