Strengths workshop for teams

Gallup research shows that strengths based teams have higher team engagement, less conflicts and more trust. When team members have common language of strengths, it will turn conversations into positive dialogue. When team members are able to use their strengths on day to day basis, it makes them feel valued.

Each team member will do CliftonStrenghts personality test. This test measures how you naturally think, feel and behaves. During the workshop each team member will have a chance to analyse own strengths and introduce them to other team members. It creates so much better understanding of each other when team members share what they bring to the team and what they need from them. Also we will analyse together your team strengths grid and look where you are collectively strong and where are your uncovered areas.

What you will learn during the workshop:

  • Strengths based approach – what it is and how it helps my team?
  • How to analyse your Cliftonstrengts34 report?
  • How to develop your talents into strengths and use more of them?
  • What is blindspot and what to do with weaknesses?
  • What are powerful partnerships and how to utilize each team member strengths in a best way?
  • Where are our strengths as team and where are our uncovered areas?

Feedback from clients

Anneli Luikmel

"After the Strengths workshop led by Aili, everything fell into place, everyone's roles in the team became clearer and trust in the newer team members grew. It was great to see how colleagues felt proud of their TOP talents, it gave them more confidence and empowered them. My first reaction to my own TOP strengths was - "those are boring talents", but after looking into them more closely, discussing with Aili and comparing them with my everyday life, I have realized that these talents actually help me to do my work the best every day."

"We participated in the development program with the goal to increase collaboration between leaders. Since we were in the middle of important changes, it was crucial that the whole team would breathe in one rhythm. We have now completed all the training modules and we can safely say that the goal was achieved and our team's leadership toolbox was replenished with several important instruments. We are also now aware of each other's individual strengths and know how to use them skillfully to achieve our goals. We would like to thank our trainers - Jaanika and Aili, whose dynamic energy made the whole program enjoyable and whose practical advice gave us extra courage to face big challenges."
