Organizations thrive when various groups of people work together efficiently and effectively to get things done. Our group and team workshops give participants the tools and experience they need to better understand themselves and their innate talents while developing a sincere appreciation for the unique strengths of co-workers. By focusing on strengths, individual members experience an improved sense of well being and take greater personal satisfaction in team accomplishments.
All workshops are offered as full and half-day programs, as well as a virtual workshop or in person.
This affirming workshop is the perfect introduction to the StrengthsFinder model and ensures participants leave with the best tools to take action and harness the innate potential of their strengths. Through an engaging and interactive presentation, individuals get to know their top-five talent themes and learn to apply them in real-life situations for maximum impact. The workshop can be designed for groups of various sizes.
Strengths Now, Inc. works with leaders and their teams to help them better understand and appreciate one another through the lens of the 34 talent themes. As a result, teams are better equipped to form strategic partnerships, build trust, improve communication, engage in healthy conflict, and maximize the inherent talent on the team. This workshop is especially impactful for teams of people who work together regularly and provides an excellent launch for a new team or a team-building boost for an existing team. Participants learn that the most effective teams know that no one is great at everything, but everyone is great at something. Through the experience of this powerful session, people learn to claim the best of what they have to offer, put their egos and personal agendas aside, and get the best job done.
We add a very popular segment called “Best of Us” where each team member explores and identifies key information about what they bring to and need from the team. Individuals are affirmed and supported as they share their findings with their team. In this training, members of strengths-based teams are aware of each other's talent filters and coached to understand how each person is inclined to think, act, and feel. This awareness helps the team navigate the issues all teams encounter with more understanding of how the team can work best together to accomplish its goals and performance objectives. This workshop is especially impactful for teams of people who work together regularly and can be scaled to work for small teams or entire departments.
All workshops and retreats are offered as full or half-day programs, as well as a virtual event or in person.
"We recently hired Sara from Strengths Now to provide a half-day workshop for our executive team. Sara is an outstanding presenter, and her style was a perfect match for our group of 40 leaders. The workshop exceeded our expectations, and many leaders are requesting workshops for their own areas. Sara built trust quickly with many different personalities in the workshop and follow-up coaching sessions. I highly recommend the Strengths Now team if you are looking to increase collaboration across your organization, break down silos, or build a stronger leadership team."

Imagine your group energized with each member bringing their full commitment and talent to the table. What if your group could have an honest conversation about what you need from one another to do your best work? Or, what if your team could push the re-set button and break through the same old team dynamics?
