Why you need a strengths-based organization, and how to get one
Presented by Hilary Howard
In an ideal work environment, individuals and managers of a work group, team, department, or entire company each understand their own talents and strengths as well as the talents and strengths of others with which they interact. In doing so, an opportunity is created in which tasks and assignments can be matched with talents and strengths, allowing resources to be used to maximum effect, initially in identifying goals, opportunities and challenges, in creating strategies and then effectively mobilizing those resources towards action and completion…thus creating a unique competitive advantage.
During this fun and interactive session we will;
- Introduce the concepts of talents and strengths and reveal why focusing on them can positively change you and your organization.
- Reveal how talents and strengths are core drivers for employee engagement, retention and productivity and thus key contributors to profitability and customer satisfaction
- Show how strengths-based organizations obtain a unique and sustainable competitive advantage.
- Highlight the Facebook philosophy on using a strengths-based management style to attract and retain high caliber talent.
