Leadership Style Indicators & Assessment Tools - The Enneagram & StrengthsFinder

August 26, 2019
2 pm Eastern, 1 pm Central, 12 pm Mountain, 11 am Pacific

Leadership development begins with self-awareness. Understanding and appreciating individual differences is important in creating a strong and empowering working environment. Community leadership programs can benefit from sharing a wide variety of assessments and opportunities for self-discovery with our participants. Throughout this webinar we will focus on two of the many dynamic tools on the market- the Enneagram and StrengthsFinder. We will also have opportunity for others to share what works best within their individual programs and communities.

The Enneagram provides a template for understanding motivations and values that drive our behavior. The Enneagram is a framework that is essential as we seek to enhance working relationships and collaborative leadership. The Enneagram helps individuals gain unique and valuable insights into their own personalities that will explain in a comprehensive way why they feel, think and act as they do. Used by more than 90% of Fortune 500 companies, the CliftonStrengths psychometric assessment, completed by over 22 million people globally, identifies and reveals people's natural talents. Routinely leveraging those talents individually or through the strengths-based management of others boosts better business outcomes while improving individual and organizational well-being.
