The leadership development pro- gram at Texas Tech University’s school of nursing included online modules developed using the NCIN Leadership Toolkit and the “True Colors©” leadership training seminar, which teaches how to identify and work with various personality types that are labeled by color. Participants in the seminar learned about their personality types and how to break down barriers in order to work effectively with those with other personality types. Scholars were also invited to attend local Sigma Theta Tau International and American Nurses Association chapter meetings.
