Introductory Strengths-Based Talent Development: For Individuals or Ministry Teams

Introductory Strengths-Based Talent Development is a six-hour group process (delivered in two consecutive three-hour sessions), which focuses on individual strengths development through the lens of Christian discipleship and ministry. The strength development process is rooted in Gallup, Inc. Strengths Development Principles and uses the CliftonStrengths® (StrengthsFinder®) tool to help individuals identify their talents. Participants will gain a basic strengths-based talent development foundation, learn how to use the CliftonStrengths® talent assessment results to intentionally develop and use their talents and strengths in their ministry contexts, and begin to develop an appreciation of their colleagues’ talents and strengths. Session Content will be delivered through PowerPoint presentations, Gallup videos, session activities, and short take-home activities.
