Great workplace teams don't just happen. Leaders build them. This highly interactive class will be held on two mornings separated by a week with some prework. A helpful tool for team leaders is Gallup's CliftonStrengths™. This well-researched and established assessment instrument enables individuals and groups to identify and explore 34 themes that describe the diverse talents we all have. Discover the strongest talents within yourself and your team members, gain important insights and leverage the potential that could go untapped. Use knowledge of team member strengths to assign tasks or projects, facilitate collaboration, improve decision-making and more. Build your strategic awareness so you can leverage your team's talents and lead with authenticity and confidence.
