Strengths-Based Development

StrengthsFinder® for Individuals: Developing and Engaging Employees by Identifying Their Strengths

4 hours


Strengths-Based Development is based on extensive research of organizations that have successfully unleashed human potential to drive bottom-line performance. The key finding is – when there is a
deliberative focus on identifying, developing, and leveraging strengths versus fixing weaknesses, individual and organizational productivity can increase. In addition, the research conducted by the
Gallup Organization shows that employees who feel that their strengths are being used every day are:

  • 38% more likely to work in more productive business units
  • 44% more likely to have higher Customer Satisfaction scores
  • 50% more likely to work in business units with lower employee turnover

In fact, employees who say they are able to use their strengths every day are SIX TIMES more likely to be engaged in their jobs.

Utilizing the Clifton StrengthsFinder® assessment, and through interactive activities, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the value of a strengths-based approach to developing one’s skills and talents
  • Name their unique, Top 5 Signature Talent Themes from their comprehensive reports
  • Claim their unique talents by looking at ways to leverage their talents more productively in their work and on their teams
  • Direct their talents productively by creating a “strengths-based” development plan that leverages their talents and strengths
  • Complete a framework that will guide effective development conversations with their leaders and teammates
