Pre-meeting Trainings (February 27, 2019):

Your Stories + Your STRENGTHS =Your Super Powers!

Don’t ignore the math folks; research shows that the best supervisors and leaders:

  • Invest in strengths.
  • Surround themselves with the right people to maximize their team
  • Understand their followers needs.

This interactive course will help you identify your SUPERPOWERS! Through a series of planned activities with fellow classmates, you will learn more about your top 5 strengthsfinder themes and how you can apply them for greater levels of supervisory/leadership and team effectiveness.

One you register for this course, you will receive your own “strengthsfinder 2.0” book with a link to the online strengthsfinder assessment. Take the assessment and you will receive a complimentary Strengths Discovery and Action-Planning Guide and additional summaries/reports that highlight your top 5 themes/strengths for you to review, print, and bring with you to our training session. The guide(s) feature an in-depth dive into the nuances of what makes you unique!

Before the February 27th session, please take some time to peruse the strengthsfinder book and review and reflect on your top 5 themes/strengths!

“What great leaders have in common is that each truly knows his or her strengths - and can call on the right strength at the right time.”                                                                                       Tom Rath

Prerequisite: This training is only open for those who currently manage and/or supervise staff.

We hear about big data and analytics all the time in business, but how can we actually use the data we have in Human Resources? This all day seminar will be a hands on approach to transforming the HRIS data we have in our current systems and creating meaningful metrics and building a dashboard that you can use in  your organizations. Utilizing Excel and Tableau, you will leave this session feeling more comfortable and ready to become a data evangelist in your organization. Participants will use their own devices so that the work that is done can be taken with them.
