I want to be honest about something. When it comes to strengths-based leadership styles, I am no ‘positivity’ or ‘woo.’ In fact, you couldn’t get me to touch those strengths (among others) with a 10-foot pole. As a middle-ground extrovert with a loud(ish) personality, I often get mistaken for an ultimate social butterfly that graces and flutters from social group to social group, making connections and friends with ease. I view this as the time to clear the air and make it known- despite colleagues and friends viewing me as a networking fiend- the thought of meeting people for the first time, interviewing, and socializing in the field of student affairs terrifies me.
