Reminder: Wed Bring Out Your Best Workshop

Lori Rothstein will help attendees discover how to grow their talents into vital assets that enrich their personal, work, and community lives.

Identifying and developing our natural talents into strengths has a tremendous impact on our work and our personal lives. Did you know that when people have the opportunity to focus on their strengths every day they are six times more likely to be engaged in their jobs and three times more likely to report an excellent overall quality of life? (Rath, 2007).

Bring Out Your Best Workshop:

Date: Wed, January 27th
Time: 9am-Noon
Cost: $60.00 * (A snack will be included with the workshop).

* Prior to the session, we would like you to take the Clifton StrengthsFinder® assessment to identify your top five strengths. Please purchase your own copy of StrengthsFinder 2.0 by Tom Rath or Strengths Based Leadership by Rath and Conchi which come with a unique code to take the online assessment.
