About this workshop
We all have unique talents and gifts that we call upon in our daily interactions. Research shows that if we could find out more about how these talents impact our behaviors, our decision making, and motivation, we could work more from talents and strengths to fully develop our potential. When we learn to work from our strengths rather than those things that make us feel weak or insecure, we feel stronger, more energized, more fulfilled and more productive.
Join us in this workshop which uses the StrengthsFinder 2.0 assessment tool and enhances participant understanding of the full potential of these strengths.
The CoreClarity In-Powering methodology allows participants to categorize their strengths further to assist in making sense of the information.
Our work is based on the idea of shared responsibility between the facilitators and participants. At the end of the session it is our hope that you will walk away with:
A willingness to challenge the focus on weaknesses as a way to succeed
Have an improved understanding of your individual talents/strengths
Learn about the talents/strengths of your colleagues in the room
Identify ways to begin to apply your strengths in your life, to realize your true potential
...and to have some fun!
This session is designed for anyone who wants to gain a better understanding of their own strengths as well as people in their professional and personal lives.
The cost of the StengthsFinder 2.0 book and personalized course materials are included in the course fee. Each participant will need to visit Human Resources (600 - 6190 Agronomy Road) to pick up a book and take the assessment prior to the workshop.
In preparation for the session, we invite you to submit your enrollment early as registration will be closed by:
