The Magic of Strengths-Based Training: Helping Your Clients Unleash Creativity & Innovation
Organizations, managers, and leaders today want and need to ignite innovation within their work groups. This session will teach you a unique and proven way to create training programs that generate a culture of greater creativity. By focusing our learning and development on people's strengths and “energizers” at work, we begin to tap into the discretionary energy of each employee, allowing them to bring their best selves to work while improving employee engagement and crucial business outcomes. In this presentation you’ll learn why a focus on “what’s right with people” is so counter-intuitive and how to put this philosophy to work to maximize your training!
KEY LEARNINGS / TAKEAWAYS:
- How to create training that motivates and inspires employees in a fresh and effective way
- A new path to creativity and innovation
- A better way to help your clients lead in a post-”command and control” world
