Strengths-based development emerged from the question, “What will happen when we think about what is right with people rather than fixating on what is wrong with them?” In doing this, we shift the paradigm of excellence by focusing on each individual's unique strengths to develop excellence in a few areas, rather than encouraging “well-rounded,” average performance in many areas – and it works. Research from Gallup shows people who use their strengths every day are 6x more likely to be engaged at work and more than 3x as likely to say they have an excellent quality of life, and teams focusing on strengths are 12.5% more productive. Who wouldn’t want that?
For this highly interactive strengths-based development workshop, attendees are required to complete the Top 5 CliftonStrengths assessment ($19.99 cost) before the event, which reveals natural patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving that inform your life and leadership. This assessment is based on 50+ years of research on human performance and behavior by Gallup, and has been taken by over 17 million people worldwide.
As a participant, you will walk away from this workshop with a deeper understanding of your own strengths, language to articulate what you need to thrive, and strategies to put your strengths into action.
There will be time for Q&A and networking.
