When You Join Us For This 90-Minute Virtual Training

You’ll walk away with a new perspective on job descriptions (and the control you have over them). Often, people feel like their job duties are unchangeable. Interestingly, roles shift over time more than most people expect.

Your natural talents give you an underutilized category to explore. It’s “The How” on the job. Most people focus on “The What” – what job title, what skill, and what knowledge they want their career to be about. This is great, yet it’s limiting. If you add “The How” – how you think, how you relate to people, how you make decisions, how you get work done at your best – this can give you and your manager an easily-accessible group of responsibilities to choose from. Since “The How” elements are simpler to assign and find, they’re easier to get right now. No more waiting for a job to open to move into a vacant role.

In this session, led by Lisa Cummings, we’ll help you:

1) figure out how you want to shape your job toward your strengths – know what you’re aiming at

2) come up with long-term and short-term strategies for moving in this direction

3) talk to your manager about it so that they can help you move in that direction.

Note: our resources lean heavily on your CliftonStrengths Assessment results. Can you attend if you’ve never done StrengthsFinder? Yes. Will it be better if you have your Top 5 results? Yes.
