The Gallup Organization has conducted research with more than 40,000 leaders across industries and sectors to identify and confirm specific abilities that can lead to success.
The research revealed seven important demands that are essential to the development of all great leaders: visioning, maximizing values, challenging experience, mentoring, building a constituency, making sense of experience, knowing self.
“Effective leaders have an acute sense of their own strengths and weaknesses. They know who they are – and who they are not. They don’t try to be all things to all people. Their personalities and behaviors are indistinguishable between work and home. They are genuine. It is this absence of pretense that helps them connect to others so well.”
-Gallup Management Journal
The Using Strengths to Meet the Challenges of Leadership Workshop introduces leaders to the features and benefits of utilizing their unique combination of strengths as identified by the Gallup StrengthsFinder assessment to meet these demands. As a leader, understanding your individual strengths and the dominant domains of your leadership strength provides awareness to lead more successfully.
Participants will be required to complete the StrengthsFinder assessment prior to the workshop.
