The Discover Your Strengths team workshop is designed to provide participants with a basic understanding of Strengths-based development.

Participants will address strategies and challenges associated with developing in their roles, as well as understanding the unique dynamics of their team’s collective talents.
As part of this workshop, participants will be reviewing their results from the StrengthsFinder, an online assessment that measures a person’s natural talents within 34 themes, then identifies the Top 5 most dominant themes (areas of strength) for an individual.
