Strengths Leadership for Business Owners-Evening Workshop

Wednesday, June 20, 2018 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Self-discovery is the first step to great leadership.  This interactive workshop introduces the participant to strengths-based development and performance.  The focus is on the business owner’s innate strengths for effective leadership. This workshop is necessary for successful operations today – to help motivate and develop people for peak performance.  The workshop will introduce Gallup's "StrengthsFinder 2.0" online assessment, research, and findings. 

Owners, new or tenured managers will receive valuable practical information on how to best leverage their strengths and how to appreciate the strengths of their employees in their work roles.  Leadership, management and team engagement will improve, boosting production, quality and service to customers.
