Great Leaders, Teams, and Why People Follow

Over a decade ago, Gallup launched the groundbreaking research project that jumpstarted a global team training movement called, StrengthsFinder 2.0. In recent years, Gallup scientists turned toward the study of leaders and mangers to discover what the best leaders have in common and how to develop those leadership attributes. They studied 1 million work teams, conducted 20,000 detailed leadership interviews, and over 10,000 individual contributors to find their answer.

Becoming An Effective Leader

This strengths based leadership training is based off of the #1 New York Times bestselling book, Strengths Based Leadership, by renowned authors, Tom Rath and Barry Conchie. This new leadership workshop explores the three keys to being a more effective leader by knowing your strengths, investing in the strengths of your team and colleagues, and understanding and meeting the four core needs of those who look to your leaders. These needs when met create powerful team engagement which affect business outcomes.
