Leveraging Your Strengths for Personal and Professional Success
Join us for an exciting, interactive professional development workshop to help mid-to-senior level program staff identify their personal strengths using the CliftonStrengths assessment tool. Better understanding what you naturally do best can help you develop in your current role, be aware of where you may have blind spots, bring a new lens to your management style, and inform how you think about professional advancement through the lens of strength.
The CliftonStrengths assessment tool normally has a cost associated with it. This PLSN session, including the cost of the individual assessments, is covered for all participants.
Our Coach will also offer an “office hour” session on December 12 from 10am - 11am for those interested in continuing the conversation followed by another on January 10 from 1pm - 2pm.
Given that we are capping registration at 30 attendees, please only register if you can commit to completing the following pre-work:
1) take the online CliftonStrengths assessment by the morning of Monday, November 28 at the latest (estimated 30-40 minutes; a code will be sent to you to login; the trainer will send your individual results report before the 12/1 session) followed by
2) an additional 15-20 minutes of pre-work/reflection before the session based on your assessment results.
