Topic: Did you know that teams with individuals who focus on strengths massively outperform teams with people who don't?
Do you find this statistic alarming? “Research shows that only 12 percent of people in the workplace play to their strengths "most of the time."
Have you ever considered the notion of prioritizing the focus on one’s strengths as opposed to opportunities?
As learning and development professionals, it's critical to engage each person's strengths and do it at a scale across the organization. The best companies are made up of great teams. Those teams have individuals who know their strengths, take them seriously, and offer them up to the organization. This engaging session will help you learn more about how you can begin to offer more of your strengths and help others discover theirs.
Prior to attending this session, participants are asked (not required) to complete the StrengthsFinder assessment. An access code for the assessment can be found by purchasing "StrengthsFinder 2.0: A New and Upgraded Edition of the Online Test” from Gallup's “Now, Discover Your Strengths" available at your local bookstore or favorite on-line book retailer.
The session will focus on helping you understand why it's important to:
