Thought Leadership: Lead, Lean, and Leverage: Being & Becoming a Strengths-Based Leader

December 7, 2023 @ 1:00 pm 2:30 pm EST

According to Gallup, followers (and each of us are leaders who are also following others) need four things: trust, compassion, stability, and hope. Strengths-based leadership not only acknowledges these four needs but prioritizes them in the work environment and in relationships with safety and care at the forefront. During this session, we’ll focus on leading others from their places of strength, leveraging the strengths of others, and intentionally leaning into your own strengths. Whether you’re a die-hard CliftonStrengths fan or have yet to become familiar with your Talent Themes, this session is designed to help you tap into your natural ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving to lead and be led using the very best of what you bring.
