Using our strengths to perform at our best

45-minute webinar

Why focus on improving your weaknesses when it’s your strengths that get you from just ‘okay’ to ‘excellent’?

Positive Psychology focuses on helping people to identify their strengths, to use them more and to develop them wisely. People in the strengths zone at work are more engaged, energised, have better working relationships and have the potential to perform at high levels.

If you are working with teams or leading others in your workplace and you want to stimulate them to become more motivated and productive come along to this session to give you some ideas and tools for working with your own strengths and those of your team.
