Have you ever  wondered why some people who don't have as much knowledge and experience seem  to be more successful than those who do?

Attend this session  and begin the journey towards developing your EQ to find that unique blend of  social skills to achieve the greatest results.


At the conclusion of  this session, participants will be able to:
(1) explain how your personal preferences and emotions impact your  effectiveness within project teams;

#505 Apply Your Strengths to Build Productive Teams
**This workshop includes 45 minutes of pre-work.  Space is limited - reserve your seat!

Decades of research have proven that when people are given the opportunity to do what they do best every day, the effect on the individual, team, and organizational performance is powerful. The problem is that most people aren’t able to accurately identify their own strengths and therefore can’t intentionally use them.

In this interactive workshop, you will learn more about the research behind a strengths-based approach to leadership and management.

Pre-work
In order to maximize the learning from this workshop, participants will need to complete a personal StrengthsFinder Assessment in advance of attending this workshop. Once completed, you will need to bring a copy of your assessment results to this workshop. Details regarding how to complete this assessment will be emailed to participants once your reservation to attend has been received.

Space is limited.


At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
(1) identify how you use your innate talents and learn how to focus on your strengths in a weakness-based world;
(2) explain what you bring to a team and where to form complementary partnerships to be more effective.
