ABOUT THE EVENT
In this current volatile and uncertain employment climate, it is crucial to have a clear understanding of the value you can bring to current or potential places of employment.
There is also a need to be flexible and willing to diversify across industries. Being successful and adaptable to new contexts will largely depend on our ability to leverage our strengths, and rely less on learned industry-specific skills.
“Strengths are patterns of thinking, feeling, or behaving that, when exercised, will engage, and energise you, and allow you to perform at your optimal level” (Willars & Biswas-Diener, 2010).
By identifying, labelling, accepting, and using our strengths wisely, we are more adaptable to change, proactive in new work environments and have higher levels of resilience.
Extensive research of character strengths in the workplace has also discovered that individuals who can identify, accept and build on their natural strengths are more engaged, confident, have higher job satisfaction and perform better in the workplace.
This 60-min class will provide you with a foundation in using a strengths-based approach to enhance your career prospects.
In this session, you will:
Understand why you need to know your strengths in today's world (as opposed to your weaknesses)
Discover your realised and unrealized strengths
Understand how you have used your strengths in the past within your own work context
Gain a brief overview of how we can harness a strengths-approach for career development
Get certified and
accelerate your growth
With an addition of just $15, you will be awarded with a Certificate of Participation at the end of the course.
With a certificate, you can:

Get more networking opportunities
Become a better mentor
