Professional Development is excited to announce that this year for Staff Development Day up to 100 employees will have the opportunity to participate in the Strengths Finder assessment (formerly known as Strengths Quest). Mary Beth Haas will facilitate an exciting day of exploration and application of the results. If you have already taken this assessment tool we ask you not to take it again but rather send a list of your “signature strengths” to Mary Beth at email@example.com to use in planning for the day.
What is Strengths Finder?
Everybody has strengths, the unique combination of talents, knowledge, and skills that every person possesses. They are the innate traits and abilities people use in their daily lives to complete their work; to relate with others; and to achieve their goals.
Decades of Gallup research uncovered 34 strengths that exist at some level within everyone. But, each person has "signature strengths," which dominate their actions and behaviors. From Achiever and Activator to Strategic and Woo, the people you work with have unique combinations of strengths that represent their individual strengths profile.
People who have the opportunity to focus on their strengths every day are six times as likely to be engaged in their jobs. They are more productive, too, both individually and in teams. And they are more than three times as likely to say they have an excellent quality of life.
More information will follow as the date nears.
Additional training can be requested by completing the Training Request Form. Once your request is submitted, a team member from Professional Development will contact you to discuss your training and/or development needs.
