Team dynamics: Working together through personality differences

December 19, 2016 / by / 0 Comment

By Marette Hahn GCU Career IMPACT Center We’ve all had them: coworkers, friends, family members and others who are drastically different than us and sometimes difficult for us to handle. But what was it our wise mentors always used to say? “It takes all kinds to make the world go ’round.” In many ways, this old adage is true, and by understanding more about yourself and those around you, you really can make it easier to get along in the workplace (and produce results). Could you imagine how ineffective a team would be if everyone on it thought the exact same way and had the exact same strengths? Nothing would get done! Therefore, it’s time to embrace those with whom you work, even if your personalities are vastly different and sometimes difficult to reconcile. Invest in an opportunity to get to know yourself better. (Ask a trusted colleague or mentor, take a personality assessment, research personalities, work with a life/career coach, etc.). Then, consider what someone opposite of you might be like and what kinds of strengths they can bring to a team. For example, you might be a fantastic visionary – a great idea person! But then there’s someone […]

Student Worker of the Month: Joey Marranca

November 11, 2016 / by / 0 Comment

By Marette Hahn Career IMPACT Center Joey Marranca is a perfect illustration of finding and living one’s purpose from the beginning, and he’s also the Career IMPACT Center’s Student Worker of the Month for October. An avid student of anatomy since he was 4 (yes, 4), Joey is a senior studying Biology with an Emphasis in Pre-Physician Assistant and is a default call representative in the Office of Financial Aid (OFA). No matter what he does, Joey’s enthusiasm is contagious, and he exemplifies Grand Canyon University’s mission, vision and values. Yes, Joey really has been studying anatomy textbooks since he was a toddler; he was influenced greatly by the example of his father, a P.A. at the Mayo Clinic here in Arizona. While he says his father’s career did not impact his decision to become a P.A., it did positively reinforce what he already loved. He even had a chance to scrub in and open a chest cavity! Joey’s goal is to become a cardiothoracic surgeon, and he is well on his way with summers of being an intern and an assistant at the Mayo Clinic, as a member of GCU’s AzHOSA, and doing well in his major. Not surprisingly, his homework […]
