This workshop is designed to help you understand your talents to improve your own self efficacy, as well as those on your team/organization. Prior to the session participants complete the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment which generates your top five talent themes. Our facilitators help you understand your individual and team talents.

The ILC can also facilitate a follow up session beyond the introduction for a more in-depth look at how your talent themes impact your team dynamics.
