Modes of Engagement:

Do you understand your personal connection to the work you do? The way we experience our work can be incredibly empowering, unleashing tremendous energy and creativity – or dismally disappointing and draining. The meaning we[/fusion_text][accordian divider_line=”” class=”” id=””][toggle title=”read more” open=”no”]ascribe our work has a powerful, synergistic impact on how we experience its relationship to our personal identity – that is, who we are, how we think of ourselves, and how we present ourselves to the world. And that connection between our work and how it may inform our personal identity drives our decisions, behavior, and overall effort. In this 4-hour workshop, participants will learn their own current mode of engagement, realize the pros and cons that accompany it, and consider ways to adopt others that may better suit their values and goals, if desired. Whether your current mode of engagement is your ideal, this workshop allows both the organization and the individual to discover ways to enable a more fulfilled, engaged, and productive workplace.

Strengths-Based Teams and Leadership:

While many professionals recognize they must “overcome weaknesses” in order to have a successful career, they often do so at the expense of maximizing their strengths and thus miss the opportunity to thrive in their[/fusion_text][accordian divider_line=”” class=”” id=””][toggle title=”read more” open=”no”] organization. By way of synergy, organizations that foster a culture grounded in strengths also register greater levels of productivity, innovation, and retention. When employees are encouraged to do tasks they really enjoy, they experience increased intrinsic motivation and longer periods of concentration, and thus persist at tasks longer – all of which propel creativity and productivity. This 6-hour workshop includes the following modules: Introduction to the Strengths Paradigm, Business Case for Strengths, Myths and Truths about Strengths and Weaknesses, Identifying and Communicating Strengths, and Strengths at Play (with an organization-specific work application final exercise).

Chart Your Course – Creating the Life You Really Want:

A day for designing the next chapter of your life! In today’s hustle and bustle world, we can find ourselves going through the motions or on “auto pilot,” rather than truly living the life we really want. Wherever you are, have you considered,[/fusion_text][accordian divider_line=”” class=”” id=””][toggle title=”read more” open=”no”]what will you do with your one, precious life? In this full-day retreat, you’ll join fellow adventurers on a guided, creative discovery of rest-of-life possibilities. You’ll start by writing a 2-3 page life story and taking the Enneagram assessment (both pre-work), and then in the retreat gain a fresh perspective, develop a clarified vision for your life, consider transition fears and motivators, and build a personal plan of action. Whether you’re 60 or 20, male or female, if you’re stuck and want a fresh start, this workshop is for you. [/toggle][/accordian][fusion_text]

Cultivating a Strengths-Based Life – for Youth (ages 9-13) and Their Parents:

Kids who are alerted to their strengths early in life gain the advantage of building a satisfying and successful life grounded in their unique talents. They gain powerful self-confidence and self-awareness that allows them to more fully[/fusion_text][accordian divider_line=”” class=”” id=””][toggle title=”read more” open=”no”] blossom and make the most of who they are. When parents focus on their child’s strengths, they can have an extraordinarily positive impact on his or her development. Further, a child who can crisply articulate her strengths is better positioned for scholastic and future career opportunities. This 2-hour workshop is attended by both the youth and parent(s) and is facilitated by Alise who is a Gallup-certified Strengths Coach. Child participants will take the online Clifton Youth StrengthsExplorer assessment administered by the Gallup Organization. The workshop provides a guided exploration of the child’s strengths with activities and reflection.
