Strengths In Your Career

This workshop is for employees who have taken the StrengthsQuest or StrengthsFinder assessment and found out their Strengths. We would prefer that individuals have gone through the Exploring Your Strengths Workshop, but that is not required.

The following will be covered:

•             How to utilize your Strengths in your chosen career path.

•             How to recognize the Strengths of others and work better with them.

•             How to understand when you are operating in the balcony and basement of your Strengths.

You must have taken your StrengthsQuest assessment to find out your top five talents before registering for this workshop.
