Please note: this is an advanced StrengthsFinder workshop.  Participation in the introductory to StrengthsFinder is required.

As a leader it is important to know what talents you possess, that you bring to the leadership table. Do you know what strengths you possess? Every leader possesses her/his own unique set of talents. According to the Gallup Organization, "we spend too much time focusing on our weaknesses, trying to make them stronger rather than recognizing our strengths." When you focus on your weaknesses, you miss out on utilizing what you do best for your organization.

This strengths-based workshop will help teams go further in understanding how their strengths help the team achieve success. Our individual talents help influence how a team cooperates and communicates to reach success. The more that teams collaborate and utilize the partnerships when strengths are combined can move a good team to a great one.

No one person works in a silo, therefore, we need to together, by tapping into each person’s strengths. Finding teammates who have strengths that complement yours, and you can team up together, you will accomplish more than if you work independently.
