I’m just returning from the 20th Biennial Association for Psychological Type International Conference. Jerry Black, Conference Chair, challenged everyone to come up with an “aha” for each session they attended. Those who wrote them down were even eligible for prizes. Big ones!
I decided to organize my top three aha’s into an acronym—ALPs. Besides helping me remember these actionable learnings, the acronym reflects that the conference, which went quite smoothly, was a bit of a peak experience for me as Program Chair.
- Action Tomorrow. Susan Nash of Em-Power and Type Academy (which houses all kinds of great type resources) opened the conference with a great keynote on ensuring that your message reaches people with different learning styles. The last step in her TEACH process involves helping people identify how they can make immediate use of new knowledge.
