It is time to develop your strengths instead of focusing on fixing your shortcomings! You have probably heard of StrengthsFinder™, because the book that originally introduced the StrengthsFinder™ assessment spent over five years on the bestseller lists. Ann Mills (CLAS ’85) will provide insight into this widely used assessment tool, and discuss how you can identify your innate talents, develop them into strengths, and use them to reach your goals. In her presentation, Ann will:

• Describe the theoretical underpinnings of Strengths™
• Discuss how weaknesses are viewed
• Identify the 34 strengths used in the StrengthsFinder™ assessment, and
• Encourage participants to reflect on and set goals using their strengths

This webinar will be helpful both to those who have taken the StrengthsFinder™ assessment and to those who want to find out more about it.
