Strengths-based Leadership: An Overview
Engaged employees are more productive and less likely to quit. A strengths-based approach to leadership improves employee engagement and builds the capacity of your organization. In this workshop participants will discuss what defines an empowering workplace and identify leadership styles that support empowerment. Through the skill of critical reflection, leaders will identify how their own skills, attitudes, and knowledge compare to the core competencies of a strengths-based leader. Participants will also reflect on the strengths of their own staff and organization and discuss how to leverage the strengths to overcome challenges.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Identify core components of Strengths-based Leadership
- Define empowerment and identify the difference between being empowered and being empowering
- Practice strengths-based vision
- Describe the purpose of critical reflection and the steps to implement it
- Identify strategies for increasing structural and psychological empowerment in the workplace
