Your Stories + Your STRENGTHS =Your Super Powers!
Don’t ignore the math folks; research shows that the best supervisors and leaders:
Invest in strengths.
Surround themselves with the right people to maximize their team
Understand their followers needs.
This interactive course will help you identify your SUPERPOWERS! Through a series of planned activities with fellow classmates, you will learn more about your top 5 strengthsfinder themes and how you can apply them for greater levels of supervisory/leadership and team effectiveness.
One you register for this course, you will receive your own “strengthsfinder 2.0” book with a link to the online strengthsfinder assessment. Take the assessment and you will receive a complimentary Strengths Discovery and Action-Planning Guide and additional summaries/reports that highlight your top 5 themes/strengths for you to review, print, and bring with you to our training session. The guide(s) feature an in-depth dive into the nuances of what makes you unique!
Before the February 27th session, please take some time to peruse the strengthsfinder book and review and reflect on your top 5 themes/strengths!
