Leveraging Your Leadership Strengths

Recent research has revealed that successful people invest more in developing their innate strengths and talents, and pay close attention to what intrinsically energizes them. Conventional approaches of fixing weaknesses have shown to be ultimately ineffective, leading only to individual and organizational mediocrity. This course offers ways for leaders to identify and leverage the strengths of their people to increase work engagement and innovation. You will learn to identify and advocate for your personal strengths using pragmatic strategies.
