I loved the insights into the generational differences and the tips on how to bridge those differences. Combined with the personality trait insights I can definitely see where it will help to smooth interaction and expectation.

Very engaging talk! Nancy gave us a little bit of self-examination of our own personalities which always ends up insightful. This presentation was very fun and educational, the only drawback is that the rest of my company wasn't here to participate in the same talk!

Great concepts. Knowledgable and enthusiastic speaker. Fun audience involvement. A valuable talk that was enjoyable to hear. The only piece I think was left out was more guidance on real world application of the concepts presented. Some high level examples were provided but the audience was left to fill in the gaps on their own on how to leverage these ideas in the real world.

I like the personality types and how understanding them eases communication between individuals. I also liked the productivity tips.

Inspiring, 1 hour long that did not seem that like, really well paced. A lot of great tips shared to master communication with peers.

I'll have to see if I can remember these tips the next time one of those entitled millennials start whining at me ;-)

Personally I didn't really care for the material presented, since it feels reductive to slot people into simple categories and treat them all like they're manipulable accordingly. That said, this was one of the most polished and well-delivered presentations of the conference; you are a talented speaker.

Topic very well presented and organized. I've read a lot about the topic of personality traits. The presentation remained in the general rather than the specific. To be fair it's next to impossible to dive into specifics in a short hour. That said, I think the information would have been very valuable for people attending, particularly those who hadn't been exposed to these concepts before.

It's so easy for software developers to think because most of our job is about interacting with computers that we don't have to think about interacting with other people. Unfortunately, that's not the case in the real world, and without being able to converse *and be understood* by others your career will definitely improve slower than if you know how to talk to others.

I immediately thought of the differences between my communication preferences versus some of my coworkers, and what "color" their communication style might be.

This is another one of those talks that would be much more useful at the very beginning of your career. But at the beginning of your career you wouldn't yet have the experience to understand why it's important.
