The Patterns and Power of Personality
This exercise relies on familiar psychological profiling to help participants identify personality traits that both help and hinder group communication. Through an interactive (and humorous) activity, participants will learn ways to perceive the interactive preferences of others while learning to collaborate, motivate, and engage with people who live and lead differently than they do.
- Personality carries predictable patterns of behavior
- Learning to anticipate and honor these patterns can increase positive relationships both personally and professionally

About the Speaker:
Kristen Partridge serves as the Interim Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students at the University of Oklahoma. After serving as the Student Activities Coordinator at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, she returned to OU as the Union Programming Coordinator in 2000. She was the advisor to the Campus Activities Council before taking the Director of Student Life position in 2008. In 2016, Kristen moved to Student Affairs as the Associate VP and Associate Dean of Students.
She received her Bachelor of Science in Education from OU in 1999 and her master’s in Human Relations and Organizational Leadership in 2008. Over the years, Kristen has served as President of the Oklahoma College Student Personnel Association and the Region 4 West National Association of Student Affairs Professionals (NASPA). In 2012, Kristen was honored to receive the Sullivant Prize for Perceptivity sponsored by the Inasmuch Foundation.
Kristen’s focus is promoting leadership development and enhancing self-awareness in every person she meets. She speaks to thousands of students every year about becoming better versions of themselves. Her passion is helping people of all ages discover their worth.
Her husband Casey works as Associate Director for the OU Graduation Office and Director of the Sooner Success program. They have a six-year-old son named Sam who just started kindergarten, and just this past summer, met their new son Will, age 3, who has stolen their hearts (and a few crayons from daycare).
The Partridge family happily resides in Norman, Oklahoma and loves to volunteer at the Center for Children and Families. They also love OU sports, theater, reading, and traveling all over the world. Kristen believes whole-heartedly that gratitude is the key to a joyful life.
