Using the StrengthsFinder 2.0 assessment tool, this course is for those interested in learning how to identify and leverage personal strengths to be more productive, energized, and satisfied at work. Participants will explore how managers can use a strengths based approach in supervision to maximize staff motivation and productivity while strengthening interpersonal relationships. We will also introduce a tool for how to use strengths when developing and working with teams. Finally, we’ll strategize about weaknesses and discuss ways to ensure they do not get in the way of excellent performance.
