Learn how to incorporate your individual strengths in your everyday work.

Taking the StrengthsFinder assessment to uncover your top 5 strengths is the first step toward fully leveraging your gifts and talents. The real challenge is figuring out how to ensure your day-to-day tasks and responsibilities capitalize on those strengths. Doing so can make you more effective and more satisfied with your work.

In our first session, we will focus on your individual strengths. How can you make small adjustments to ensure that you are taking full advantage of your strengths on a day to day basis? We will work to map your strengths to where you draw energy at work to help you work in that space more regularly. You will leave with a deeper understanding of the “why” behind your job satisfaction and your contributions.

In our second session we will focus on your teams’ strengths.  Truly effective teams tap all leadership domains, and you’ll learn how you can build a composite view of your team’s strengths and blind spots. We’ll talk through ways to use this information to play to the team’s strengths and manage weaknesses.
