- Leading A Strengths Based Team: Notice What Works To Get More Of What Works
65% of employees reported receiving zero recognition for good work in the last year. Ouch. No wonder employees have a tough time nailing it. They get feedback that implies “not it, not it, not it” throughout the year, yet they are often oblivious to the factors that can make them a star performer. They’re often blind to their own strengths. And managers tend to neglect telling them when they see their talents in action. Those two factors leave most workplaces full of untapped potential. Join this event to find out why teams that focus on strengths every day have 12.5% greater productivity (source for stats: Gallup).

Leveraging your strengths at work makes you stronger. Wallowing in your weaknesses makes you a weaker performer. If that concept resonates with you, it's time to get another StrengthsFinder on board. The world seems obsessed with fixing what's broken with people. Filling gaps. Worshipping failure. Instead, when you bring this keynote to your event, you'll take a stand for investing in the audience's natural talents. Your productivity and employee engagement will see a boost when you invest this way.
