Managing for strengths at TDN

by Viv on November 19, 2008

On Friday 5th December you can take a breather from the general negativity that is surrounding us as the economic outlook continues to deteriorate. Whilst on a macro level the picture is gloomy, there’s no reason on the micro level why you and your organisation can’t thrive if managed effectively. Find out how at the Trainers & Developers Network. If you’d like to come along as my guest, just get in touch.

The session is called “Managing for Strengths” and will cover:

  • The business case for strengths
  • An overview of the strengths literature
  • An exploration of what this means for managers
  • Exercises for managers to run with their teams
  • An examination of people management from a strengths perspective
