Lead From Your Strengths
Do you spend most of your time playing to your strengths?
May 20, 2013
8:30am - 4:00pm
Champlain College Main Campus
LEAD is a strength-based process that draws on the principles of Appreciative Inquiry, Appreciative Intelligence, Positive Psychology and the Strengths Movement and grows out of the simple idea that what we focus on increases. We can choose to learn more about our weaknesses, or we can get smarter about the ways in which we are performing well.
During this highly interactive one-day workshop, participants will experience the LEAD four-step process, apply it to a current challenge, and leave with a strength-focused skill that will reap immediate benefits in their life and work. The LEAD process can be applied to any challenge by an individual, a team or an organization that requires planning to achieve positive change.
Facilitator - Ada Jo Mann, a partner in Innovation Partners International, has 35 years of experience collaborating with clients on strength-based approaches to strategic planning; organization design; whole system change; program development and evaluation; inter-organizational partnerships; team building, and training.
