Teams that use their strengths perform better than teams that don’t. This workshop enables you to discover what you naturally do best through the Clifton Strengths assessment tool. You will learn how to develop your greatest talents into strengths and how to use your personalized results to maximize your potential. This seminar will help you to focus on your strengths and increase your effectiveness at work and beyond, maximize your strengths and mitigate your weaknesses, effectively communicate your strengths and weaknesses to other team members, and capitalize on the strengths of others to work effectively in a team situation. You will have stronger team dynamics, better conversations, and increased collaboration. You will receive the Clifton Strengths assessment free of charge, but register early – registration is limited to the first 75 participants and closes on Oct 15.
