Developing our employees is key to the success of our organizations. In addition, selecting the right individuals to work on projects provides a win-win situation. We can provide our staff with an opportunity to work within their strengths as well as build teams that are diverse to allow for the best solutions to develop. We are using the assessment tools of StrengthsFinder and MBTI to faciitate the selection of these opportunities.

OUTCOMES: Assess how you can provide a positive outcome in projects or goals through the recognition of the value of your strengths, assess how your preferences can be combined with others to complete a common goal, and develop a template for coaching others on how their strengths and preferences can help them achieve goals
