The positive psychology model is here to stay! Many of us are familiar with Strengthsfinder and similar tools that highlight our strengths and deliver some good insights into our self-awareness. Sometimes we do the activities as a "team," but are we really using it effectively as a teambuilding tool? Or is it mainly just in the arena of an effective ice breaker?
A good leader will take the time to deconstruct the daily operation of his or her team, identifying where it bogs down and where it over-accelerates. Examining those areas from a strengths perspective can offer the leader insights about how to achieve a more complementary balance. Those insights can then be used as a basis for dialogue within the team, allowing each member to better understand his or her ideal role relative to other team members. In this way, the leader can ensure that the team operates as more than the sum of its parts.
Join us for this interactive session where we'll explore various ways to leverage the strengths based approach to create highly effective teams.
