Personal Strengths and Leadership Styles

Have you ever wondered why you have difficulty working with a particular individual? Do you chalk it up to personality differences and just try to get along? There is another way. This session uses the self-assessment instrument, “The Strength Deployment Inventory,” to help you discover and re-confirm the strengths you use when things are going well and to realize how they change under conflict situations.

You will also learn a conceptual framework to help you “figure out” another person and what their strengths might be. This increased understanding of what motivates people to act as they do will lead to more effective strategies in working with them.
