    "What would happen if we studied what was right with people versus what's wrong with people?" That's the question Dr. Donald Clifton, creator of CliftonStrengths (a.k.a., StrengthsFinder), asked many decades ago. Since then, research from Gallup has shown that when we know how to leverage our natural talents - in other words, what's right with us - we are three times as likely to report having an excellent quality of life and six times as likely to be engaged in our work.  

    In this workshop, Marla Turner, Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, uses the CliftonStrengths assessment to guide your exploration into your unique talents. This highly interactive virtual workshop will help you discover how you've used your talents to be successful and how you can turn talents into Strengths by intentionally leveraging them every day.

    Your registration fee includes your CliftonStrengths assessment and report for your top five strengths. Once your paid registration is complete, you will receive instructions for completing the assessment. You’ll need to complete your assessment by July 11, 2022. 

    Our speaker will receive a copy of your report and email address; however, you will not receive any solicitations from her. 

    If you have completed your CliftonStrengths Assessment in the last three years and have access to your results, you do not need to take it again. You’ll receive $10 off your registration. So that Marla can incorporate your report into her presentation, you will need to share your results with her. We will share instructions for how to do this after you’ve registered.

      Our career success ties directly to our emotional intelligence. As many studies show, embracing emotional intelligence is a competitive edge. For these reasons and more, we’re all encouraged to grow our emotional intelligence, both for ourselves and our learners. ATD also makes it a key part of the Personal Capability model.

      To truly take this subject to heart, we invite you to join a “quest” in our new Community in Practice series. This opportunity will benefit instructional designers, leadership coaches, live instructors – in short, everyone who has a role in helping people to grow in this important way. You will embark on three stages:

      • Learn: Explore both classic and current research from experts. 

      • Practice: Design an instructor-led or e-learning plan for teaching an emotional intelligence skill. 

      • Grow: Share our learning plans with each other. 

      Your registration gets you into all three sessions, but if you miss a session, our facilitators can get you caught up. Don’t miss this unique chance to boost a vital learning & development capability!


      Target Audience: 

      • All L & D Professionals


      Please register for all three dates in this series: 

      • Learn: Wednesday, Wednesday, August 10, 2022, 5 to 7 PM (PDT)
      • Practice: Wednesday, August 17, 2022 5 - 7 pm PDT
