Let’s Get Strong: Strengths at Work

Jocelyn S. Davis, USMx

Effective leaders know that we are always better when we play to our strengths. There’s science behind that statement. In this course, discover the power of strengths at work through selected models, self-assessment & learning use your strengths more.

This course will help you build the confidence to bring your best self to work by identifying and learning to capitalize on your unique strengths. Strengths-based management is the secret ingredient to creating employee engagement which increases key performance indicators for all organizations.

This certificate offers an extraordinary opportunity for you to spend some quality time with yourself to assess your current level of soft skills, clearly define your core self, and build soft skills which are essential to professional, not to mention life, success.

Not only will your performance increase when you capitalize on your strengths, you’ll enjoy your work much more.

We have been schooled on fixing our weaknesses from grade school to the workplace. Weakness correction only gets you to acceptable, that is no weakness. Weakness correction alone does not get you to outstanding performance levels. Not individually and not as an organization. Identifying, accepting and embracing, and capitalizing on your strengths is the difference between good performance and excellent performance. Doing this with your team or your organization is amazing!

This course focuses on strengths, who you are at your best, not on skills, like knowing how to keyboard. Skill weaknesses, of course, must be addressed. They can be improved.

The course will define strengths, explore several strengths models, provide a free self-assessment of strengths for all learners, and help you learn to capitalize on your strengths and manage your weaknesses.

Verified learners who access the Power Lab to take additional self-assessments and receive confidential individual results from the Realise2 Strengths Profile. The Realise2 Strengths Profile provides strengths feedback along three axes: is it a strength, how often are you using it, and does its use energize you. This strengths assessment provides a dynamic tool to optimize your use of your full portfolio of strengths at work allowing you to increase your energy by how you deploy your strengths. It is a very insightful and practical tool which can be used with teams as well.
