Leveraging Strengths for Organizational Success

A half-day workshop

Using the Gallup’s StrengthsFinderTM assessment, your team will gain awareness of their greatest talents and begin turning them into strengths. Strengths-Based Development: Your talents – those thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that come naturally to you – are the source of your true potential. The better you can apply these talents, the greater your potential to consistently act with more confidence, direction, and hope.

Your management team will:

  • Understand individual strengths and how these can be to create powerful teams.
  • Improve relationships with fellow team members.
  • Build confidence as individuals and as an organization.
  • Create an improved work environment for all.

“StrengthsFinders stood out. With power and clarity, it revealed to me how I work and contribute in the professional world, and gave me vivid language to describe those contributions to others.”

Customized Training

High quality, comprehensive career services from local experts with more than 20 years experience in Chicago.

Leadership Seminars

We know a course is only as good as its implementation in the workplace, so our program provides follow-up coaching sessions (individual or team-based) to reinforce learning and ensure new behaviors are being used.

Staff Retreats

Increasing team alignment and productivity, while helping teams work together toward shared goals and objectives makes a huge difference to their success. Retreats benefit employees of all levels – each individual will leave the retreat more aware of the contributions each team member makes to the shared success of the group and will understand how individual behaviors and actions impact the group’s results.


Enable your new employees to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, and behaviors to become effective professionals within your organization. Our facilitated onboarding sessions will help new employees to clarify expectations, learn organizational values and norms, and build relationships within departments and the organization as a whole.
