Professional Faculty Leadership Association Spring Professional Development Workshop

Discovering Your Strengths with Melissa Yamamoto (Workshop Leader)

Effective leaders know what they do well and find ways to apply their strengths productively. In this interactive session, participants will explore their results from the on-line StrengthsFinder test to better understand their strengths, how to manage their weaknesses, and gain insight into how to work well with people who have different strengths than their own.

Melissa Yamamoto is the Assistant Director for Leadership Development in the department of Student Leadership and Involvement. She has 27 years of experience helping people to further their leadership abilities, and is the self-proclaimed ‘StrengthsFinder Queen’ at OSU.
