Why Can’t Everyone Be Just Like Me…..
Understanding and Maximizing Your Unique Talents
Presented by Irené Turtle
An individual’s core talents are those recurring patterns of thought, feeling and behavior that are determined by the basic ‘hard-wiring’ of the brain. Increase self-awareness by understanding your own unique talents and those of the people you live and work with.
During this session, we’ll focus on the importance of:
- Appreciating unique talents - of yourself and others
- Understanding individual and group talents and needs
Applying this information to work more effectively, improving productivity, communication, and teamwork
Note: If you have ever taken the Clifton Strengths Assessment (formerly called Strengthfinders) you are encouraged to bring your top 5 talents to this meeting.
