Gallup’s CliftonStrengths Discovery instructor-led learning session will help participants understand the importance of identifying what they do best and discover how to use their natural talents to be more successful. Gallup research proves that people succeed when they focus on what they do best. When they identify their talents and develop them into strengths, people are more productive, perform better and are more engaged. The challenge is that people often take their most powerful talents for granted, and many are not fully aware of them. This learning session helps people learn, discuss and develop their unique talents.
