Leveraging your Strengths as a Career Differentiator
August 19 | 12:00-1:30PM PDT
Until the end of the last century, psychology was one-sided, centered primarily on what was wrong with people. Conventional wisdom and office policies focused on where employees were lacking and worked to shore up weaknesses. Fortunately, Dr. Don Clifton, a forward thinking man who believed in the power of research and individual excellence, spent more than 40 years of his life studying successful people. His work culminated in the identification of 34 talent themes that provide a workplace lexicon for understanding the patterns around how we think, feel, and behave on a regular basis. Just knowing the top talents for yourself and others is powerful. Learning how to intentionally grow and apply these talents is priceless. Those who learn to create teams that leverage these talents, however, will be in perpetual demand in the workplace.
