'Playing to Your Strengths' Workshop

Learn How to Apply Your Strengths to Achieve Personal Fulfillment and Rise to Your Strengths-Edge


Do you know your strengths? Are you living your strengths? More than any other factor, playing to your strengths enhances personal fulfillment, effectiveness - and is the greatest opportunity for excellence in all aspects of your life.

Come prepared to discover and explore your top 5 talent themes as identified in the Clifton StrengthsFinder Assessment. By doing so, you will realize the impact that strengths awareness can have on you personally and on your performance at work, home and in your community.


In our time together, we will bust the myths that may be holding you back from true fulfillment. You will learn the components of and recognize the signs of a strength, explore ideas for how to manage around your weaknesses, and finally, leave with an action plan to amplify the strengths in your top areas of

“Taking the Strengths evaluation not only helped me to clearly identify strengths on paper but also to see them show up in my everyday life. After attending the class, I felt that I could embrace my strengths and be able to work with them, and to stop lamenting the strengths I do not have.

I highly recommend this training and strongly encourage others to try it too!”
