Strengths Based Leadership:  

After completing the Strengths Finder 2.0 assessment are you curious to learn more about this unique perspective? In this session, you’ll have an opportunity to think about your top 5 and how you can utilize those themes to motivate pique performance in all aspects of your life. This session focuses on Interactive activities to encourage teams to consider how leveraging the individual strengths of members on your team can create an increased ability to solve problems and overcome obstacles. We will also study each theme in both its balcony and basement form and focus on reframing negative assumptions about specific strengths to improve team dynamics and performance.  

Self-Exploration and Personal Growth:  

According to Parker Palmer, one of our deepest callings as individuals is to discover our authentic self. Individuals who are intentional about reflecting on their personal strengths and passion for working in a given field discover a rich source of inspiration for their work.
