We live in a world where we spend an awful lot of time fixing our shortcomings and too often our natural talents go untapped. Research shows that people have more potential for growth when they invest energy in developing their strengths rather than improving their weaknesses. In this session we will help you tap into your uniqueness by focussing on a strengths-based approach to learning, development and leadership.

During the session we will be looking at gaining greater perspective on your strengths & talents – what makes you uniquely suited to do your work!
