Strengths-Based Leadership: Utilizing Your Natural Talents to Maximize Your Prevention Leadership Potential
March 2, 2023 @9:30 AM - 11:45 AM
Ohio’s prevention professionals work diligently in their local communities to provide education, awareness, and advocacy that promote healthier individuals and communities. To fulfill their vital missions, prevention professionals are expected to have the ability to communicate well, motivate individuals and teams, handle and delegate responsibilities, and solve problems. However, many prevention professionals lack specific leadership training, thereby inadvertently employing a weakness-based leadership approach, when just the opposite – a strengths-based leadership approach – is backed by an undeniable amount of research demonstrating its benefits. Utilizing CliftonStrengths as a framework, this session will help prevention professionals learn how to use a strengths-based approach to name, claim, and aim their natural talents to advance their leadership potential while also assessing the strengths of their team members and collaborative partners in order to capitalize on their skillsets and get more done in less time! Participants will walk away with new information that will not only advance their ability to function more effectively as a prevention professional, but they will also be able to apply this knowledge to other areas of their personal and professional development.
