Discover Your Strengths: A CliftonStrengths Workshop
La Tondra Murray, Ph.D., Executive-in-Residence, Pratt School of Engineering, and Leadership Coach with Engineer Your Own Bliss
What are your natural, innate talents and why should you focus on the things that you do best? Knowledge about your strengths can play an important role in both personal and professional life. If you can leverage your strengths on a daily basis, you can add transformational value to your organizations and colleagues. Participants will complete the Clifton StrengthsFinder® assessment in advance for this interactive session, led by Gallup Certified Strengths Coach La Tondra Murray, Ph.D.
During this workshop, participants will learn:
- Why a strengths-based approach can yield positive results for you and your teams
- What your top 5 signature themes of talent are and how they look in action
- How to create a personal action plan to “name, claim and aim” your strengths

All eligible registrants will be offered a free code to access the CliftonStrengths assessment; instructions will be available in a confirmation email.
