Most corporate training programs focus on addressing employee weaknesses and skill gaps, but we take a different approach in our strength-based training. This progressive training program is centered around an employees individual strengths and based on a system established by the renowned Gallup organization. The CliftonStrengths program (formerly known as StrengthsFinder) follows a highly individualized development approach that identifies an individual's unique strengths and their value to the organization, and creates a customized training program to maximize their benefits.
The program also emphasizes the importance of creating a positive outlook for employees to their individual roles in the organization, and understanding how they can use untapped abilities and talents to add value to their workplace.
CliftonStrengths involves a three-phased process, starting with an online assessment of employees in order to examine and identify their top five strengths. This is followed by a two-day workshop that further explores strengths of trainees and their co-workers, and teaches techniques to improve individual performance and the ability to collaborate with others. The final phase, which is optional, involves one-to-one coaching with a Strengths certified coach to create an action plan that builds on strengths and implements learnings in the workplace.
Strength training for leaders
CliftonStrengths is a highly effective approach to use in the training and development for senior-level employees in organizations. It is particularly suited to leadership development due to its highly individualized approach, its focus on the unique role and value of employees, and its impact on creating a positive work culture - all of which work to maximize openness and motivation in leaders towards learning and development.
