Have you ever wondered how to be a better manager or to get the most out of yourself or others at work?  We are bringing in an expert in Strengthsfinder, a powerful tool for management and leadership, to provide key insights.  We invite you to attend the Discover Your Strengths workshop, a fun and interactive session designed to provide participants with a basic understanding of Strengths-based development. Learn how to focus on what you do best in order to maximize personal effectiveness and performance.  Participants will address strategies and challenges associated with developing in their roles, as well as understanding how to maximize interpersonal communication by valuing the unique talents of other members of the team.

When: 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm – Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Where: San Diego County Bar Center – 401 West A, #1000, San Diego, CA  92101

Cost: Free to Paid members; $20 to non-members (Click HERE & scroll to bottom for payment)

To get the most out of this workshop, we encourage you to take StrengthsFinder, an online assessment that measures a person’s natural talents within 34 themes, then identifies the Top 5 most dominant themes (areas of strength) for an individual. By revealing the ways in which each person most naturally thinks, feels, and behaves, StrengthsFinder helps individuals discover and build upon the areas in which they have the most potential to develop and succeed.  To purchase a StrengthsFinder code and take the assessment, click here and purchase the “Top 5 Strengths Access” ($9.99 per code).

(Please note: StrengthsFinder is not a prerequisite for this workshop, however the results will allow you to gain more insight into some of the discussion topics as they relate to your own unique talent combination.)
