Influence and friends

 

Meeting: Wednesday 29 April 2009
Friends Lounge, National Library of Australia, Parkes Place, Canberra
6.30 pm, networking and nibbles from 6.00 pm

How to influence people and not lose friends will be presented by Brian O’Donnell. This participative presentation will consider how differences (and similarities) in Psychological Type can have an impact on our relationships with those with whom we live and work.

It will outline the essentials of the theory of Psychological Type, as developed by Carl Jung and expanded by Katherine Briggs and Isabel Myers, and then look at how to apply those ideas to everyday life and in particular to the work of editors.

The presenter, Brian O’Donnell is a CSE member, Editor and Technical Writer, Director of First Rate Solutions Pty Ltd and an accredited Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) practitioner. Brian regularly presents on Type related issues at events run by the Australian Association for Psychological Type (AusAPT) and seeks to apply his special interest in Type to his life and work.

Even experienced editors need all the help they can find in working with the wide range of people involved directly and indirectly with our profession. Considering the title of this presentation, it should prove very valuable in this regard.

Come prepared to participate actively and enjoy the results.
