How to Lead and Support a Strengths-Based Workplace

Tuesday, April 2 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

No cost to participate


Tickets are not available as this event has passed.

The demands of nonprofit leaders can feel overwhelming at times, yet when leaders build upon their greatest natural talents they can draw energy from their work, lifting the engagement and productivity of everyone around them.  This workshop is based on the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment, a product of the Gallup Organization and years of research that indicate the positive impact of strengths-based workplaces.

Participants will experience a Strengths Discovery Session to better understand the results of their assessments and they will explore how to leverage their greatest talents in reaching their goals. The assessment will need to be completed on your own time at least a week before the session; the survey takes approximately 30-45 minutes to complete. A link will be sent via email for you to complete this work at your convenience. You must be part of an arts organization to participate in this session.

Presented by Danette Olsen McCarthy. Danette is an organizational consultant, using the arts and experiential learning to help teams reimagine their future and design a path to achieve it. Her work in both the private and non-profit sectors includes strategic action-planning and change management. As a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, Danette is particularly effective at helping teams understand how to harness their individual member strengths for exceptional results. She sees the power of understanding one’s strengths as the most exciting and effective path to personal and professional success.
