Leadership Connections Conference

The Connection Conference is a conference designed for leaders across Central Michigan University Campus to come together to participate in different leadership workshops. This particular conference is to make connections by meeting different leaders from all around campus. The conference was held at the Great Wolf Lodge water park and hotel in Traverse City, Michigan. During the conference one workshop that stuck out to me personally was the leadership personality test workshop. Every person in the room had to take a test to determine their personality. After taking the test the instructors of the group separated the people with different personality traits into a large box sectioned off. The first separation was introverts on one side of the box and extroverts on the other side. Then we were separated into three more sections of personality. When it got to the end of it I found out that a member of my cohort of my Leadership Advancement Scholarship program had the exact same personality traits as me. That was a really important for me to see, especially since we are both introverts it’s nice to bond with the other introverts of the group you are working in. I don’t remember what our personality trait was exactly called, but we are more concerned for the people around us, and more on the quiet thinking side of things. When the day was over full of other workshops of speakers talking about being a leader, being creative, being proud, and much more; we got to spend the night at the water park with all the new people we met during the conference. My favorite part of the conference was to see all the connections we could make just at CMU. The girl that I sit next to in my biology class ended up being there ans that was great for us to connect outside of the classroom. Connections is a great way to meet new people, and make connections as corny as that sounds. You learn a lot about your self, learn a lot about your campus, and learn a lot about the people that make up your campus community. Which I believe that is truly important.
