Uncover Your Strengths:
Develop you, develop your team

Uncover Your Strengths: Develop you, develop your team

Join us as we uncover and learn about our individual strengths, and how to best leverage them in the workplace and in our personal lives. You’ll have the opportunity to take the GALLUP StrengthFinder 2.0 online assessment prior to the event and then learn how to interpret and leverage that report with a presentation by Kari Saddler, a Certified Professional Coach.

Our panel will share their personal stories and how they’ve leveraged their strengths to get where they are, and in turn, how they have helped their teams leverage their own strengths.
