Leverage Your Talents and Build a Culture of Collaboration
According to Gallup’s State of the Global Workplace report, we are experiencing a global crisis in worker disengagement. 87% of employees are either not engaged or actively disengaged. This dismal statistic is an urgent call for organizations to more effectively understand and leverage their people’s talents, skills and energy.
Where to Start
It starts with the individual. A leading benchmark for understanding an individual’s talents is the Gallup StrengthsFinder assessment. Academy Founder Mary Stelletello uses StrengthsFinder in leadership development programs and professional coaching to provide the starting point for the journey.
A person’s talents – those thoughts, feelings, behaviors that come naturally – are the source of his or her true potential. Contrary to traditional professional development that focuses on fixing weaknesses, Gallup’s research proves that building on talents increases employee engagement, productivity, retention and organizational profitability.
Thriving in the Global Workplace
You can’t do it alone. The complexity of operating in the global economy requires effective collaboration. Successful teams share purpose and vision; team members understand their own talents and the talents of each team member. Team members are aware of how each person is inclined to think, act and feel. This level of understanding and awareness helps the team achieve excellence.
