ABOUT STRENGTHS COMMUNICATOR TRAINING
Strengths Communicator is for Strengths professionals who want to enhance their skills in order to help others understand the unique behaviors of Strengths. At the conclusion, you will learn how to lead others through a 1 to 1 StrengthsFinder conversation around their top five themes of Strength.
We developed our Strengths Communicator Training to help individuals enhance their skills in order to help others understand the unique behaviors of Strengths. Strengths are understood, heard and seen. Therefore, Strengths can also be misunderstood, misperceived and misapplied.
Strengths Communicator Training teaches Strengths Professionals the disciplines of hearing, seeing and understanding the behaviors and nature of Strengths. This training focuses on the disciplines needed to conduct a 1 to 1 conversation as well as the professional delivery of that information in feedback sessions, group training, etc..
The training consists of four days of in-person training at specified location (see below). The time between the two sessions of training will be used for you to complete your “Strengths Conversations” as well as an opportunity to check-in with members of our team.
The Strengths Communicator Training gives you knowledge of Strengths. This knowledge helps you understand, identify and look for the nuances of the Strengths in individuals. Leadership Vision’s best gift to me was the wisdom of how to help others discover this knowledge.
~ Todd Maas, Retreat Manager, Youth Frontiers

The twelve conversations allowed me to have specific conversations with twelve people in my life and listen to them describe 26 of the 34 strengths. I now have a better understanding of some of the most complicated people in my life and how they navigate the world.
