|Course Name||Building the Strengths-based Organization|
November 17, 2016 - November 19, 2016
Thursday - Saturday
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
“What leaders have in common is that each really knows their strengths, has developed their strengths, and can call on the right strength at the right time." - Donald O. Clifton
Each employee is different. The organization must capitalize on these differences. It must watch for clues to each employee's natural talents and then position and develop each employee so that his or her talents are transformed into genuine strengths. The entire enterprise is built around the strengths of each person. The organization whose employees feel that their strengths are used every day is more powerful and more robust.
“Building the Strengths-Based Organization” helps individuals capitalize on talent to increase productivity and effectiveness. It proves that the best way to develop people is to identify their talents, then help them add the skills and knowledge that build strengths – the ability to provide consistent, near-perfect performance.
The program makes clear that talents do more than make persons unique individuals. It substantiates Gallup research findings that when people follow their talents – the ways in which we naturally think, feel, and behave - they also serve as our best opportunities for true excellence.

Set in motion an appreciation of the impact of strengths on the organization along the areas of self-awareness, engagement, and well-being.
