Course Description

When leaders focus on employees’ strengths, engagement levels increase to up to 73% (Gallup, 2008). Individuals who are given the opportunity to use their strengths at work will perform better, they are more innovative and proactive and have better well-being at work. By acknowledging employee strengths and focusing on developing these further, leaders, individuals and the team, are likely to be much more effective.

This training course explores the importance of a Strengths-based approach to assessment and development, and how organisations can maximise the benefits of individual strengths. With the use of our BeTalent Strength Insights tool, we will teach delegates on how to integrate a strength based assessment into the team and the benefits of doing so. We will share with the delegates how to interpret the Strength Insight reports and how to engage in strength conversations for assessment and development. If delegates would like to become accredited in our Strengths tool, they can do so by submitting a written report from a feedback session with a partner.
