In this highly interactive session, attendees will be given an introduction to Gallup’s Strength Based philosophy and will learn why focusing on strengths is a better assurance of success than trying to improve weaknesses. Attendees will be given an opportunity to identify at least one strength and to analyze how that strength has assisted them in the past; as well as try to ascertain how it may be useful to them in the future.
PLEASE NOTE: Although it is not necessary for attendees to have taken the Gallup Strength Assessment, the session will be far more engaging if the assessment has been taken at some point. The assessment can be found in the book, Strength Based Leadership by Tom Rath and Barry Conchie; StrengthFinders 2.0 by Tom Rath; or at https://www.gallupstrengthscenter.com/Purchase/en-US/Product.
