Leveraging Team Strengths

A Talent-Focused Approach to Leading Teams


View Next Start Date

High-performing teams do not happen by chance. They are led by leaders who are intentional about creating an inclusive team culture where collaboration is the norm, who are focused on the goal, and know the only way they will accomplish the mission at hand is by acknowledging, appreciating, and leveraging the unique talents and strengths each individual brings to the table.

In the foundational leadership program, Leveraging Team Strengths, you will work alongside your peers as you make the shift towards a talent-focused approach to team culture. Leaving the program, you will see yourself and your team members through a new lens and have the tools to inspire your very own high-performing team.

This program was designed by two people; one who led a naval submarine and its diverse crew, the other who spent years leading organizations in the boardroom. These experiences are what make Leveraging Team Strengths highly-interactive and relevant.

Whether you are preparing to move into a leadership role, have been promoted recently into leadership, or have been a people leader for many years, Leveraging Team Strengths is for leaders who want tangible tools they can use to create a high-performing team by focusing on every member's strengths, talents, and contributions.

Reviews From Your Peers

"Simply the best training, the most practical, relevant, and effective training I have ever been part of."
"It was both insightful and revealing. It brought two seemingly disparate and unrelated environments together: the close confines of a submarine juxtaposed against the similarly close quarters of the business boardroom."
"It makes it clear that we should be creating an atmosphere of inclusion and treating our biggest investment, human capital, with respect. The contrasts between the Navy and organizations show a clear gap in the way inclusion should be done."
