[PODCAST] The Importance of Knowing Your Team

The Importance of Knowing Your Team

There are plenty of personality profile tests out there. From Meyers Briggs to the Enneagram to Strengths Finders to DISC, the list can go on and on. These tools can be a great way to get to know yourself better and a great tool for team building… if you actually use and learn from them! On today’s episode, Meghan sits down with Jon Sarles to talk about the importance of emotional intelligence for leaders, the science behind why these tools help, and the growth an organization can have when the leader knows their team.

Jon Sarles is the president of Elevated Learning, LLC, a professional learning consultancy. With more than twenty years of experience in the field of adult learning, Jon is an expert in applying adult learning methodology to simplify challenging concepts and enable a successful transfer of knowledge. Jon specializes in designing, creating, and implementing learning for the telecommunication industry, leadership and team development, and non-profit organizations.  When not in the classroom leading learning, Jon can also be found facilitating keynote addresses, designing learning experiences, and enabling the growth of others.
