Jung Society of Utah: How to Become a Transformational Leader
The winner of City Weekly’s Best Soul-Stirring Discussions brings another free lecture this Thursday. Modern leadership demands an ability to adapt one's style to achieve the maximum effectiveness. Rather than using one's own preferred style, excellent leaders are able to take different approaches to suit the multi-faceted needs of various situations. Using an adaptation of Jung's personality type model, Dr. Grandstaff will show folks how a successful transformational leader develops flexibility and adaptability through their eight personality functions and attitudes in order to meet the differing demands of organizational situations. University of Utah Union Building, SaltAir Room, 200 S Central Campus Drive, Thurs., May 12, 7 p.m., Free, JungUtah.com.
