You are focused on improving the performance, engagement and results of the teams, leaders and individuals you support. Interestingly, one of the common key indicators in measuring high performance is an affirmative answer to the question “At work, do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every single day?” 95% of Strengths Strategy® clients report an increase in this key predictive indicator. Educating people on how to draw out and amplify the strengths in themselves and those they work with is critical to innovation, collaborative management, effective decision making, and more. When individuals know, understand, and use their strengths every day, it changes the entire landscape of their work, themselves, and their organizations. 

Our speaker/facilitator for our May meeting will build on the amazing presentation by Paul Allen to ATD in April by focusing on strengths application to increase performance, engagement and results.

In this special interactive 2-hour mini-workshop, you will experience and learn:

  • The four places from which everyone operates, why they go there and what results are created
  • The two keys to unlocking potential and performance in Interdependence
  • How to unleash the power of effective strengths use
  • How to mitigate weakness through strength
  • Real world application to your “stickiest” relationship and task
  • How to design a synergized team

This is one session you will want to attend! (And bring your friends and colleagues too. They will be glad they came.)

To maximize your learning, please bring the names of your top 5 strengths as identified by the Clifton Strengths Finder 2.0 Assessment. (It can be purchased at )

Our speaker, Lisa Gregory, also has a free gift for each attendee. This gift will help you measure and support teamwork, engagement, proactivity and Confident Vulnerability™ in your work.
