Leveraging Your Strengths

Monday, September 16, 2019
12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

How do you describe your five greatest strengths? How can you leverage this information to communicate your capabilities to colleagues and potential employers? Using the CliftonStrengths assessment, this workshop will help you explore a new way to talk about your skills. We will investigate strategies for communicating your strengths to others, the challenges that your strengths might pose for you, and ways you can use information about your strengths to thrive in a team setting. The online CliftonStrengths assessment is offered to all registered participants in this limited-enrollment workshop. Our facilitator is Melissa Bostrom, Ph.D., Assistant Dean for Graduate Student Professional Development.

Curious about the value of this workshop? Lucy Chikwetu, Ph.D. student in Electrical & Computer Engineering, reflected on what she learned from a past workshop: "That experience gave me the language that I needed to articulate my strengths and identify how they’ve helped me succeed." Read her full post here.

Because of the limited seats available for this workshop, all participants must agree to complete the online assessment by September 10 and to attend the 90-minute workshop on September 16. Instructions to access the online assessment are provided upon registration submission. Registrants who complete the assessment but do not attend the workshop may be asked to reimburse The Graduate School for the cost of the assessment. Registration closes Sunday, September 8 at 11:59 pm.

Pizza will be served; please bring your own beverage to enjoy.
