Participants will explore the concept of strengths as the activities that most energize us and how knowing our strengths can be an effective foundation for developing leadership capacity. At Minerva BC, we believe that people are at our most powerful when contributing from a place of our strength. We will uncover the myths and truths of strengths-based leadership and discuss the benefit of finding those activities that put us in
a state of “flow.” This interactive session will provide educators with valuable tools for identifying strengths in ourselves and our
students. There will be opportunity for small group discussion and reflection into how we as educators can more effectively play to our strengths. We believe that when people can focus more of their energy into their strengths instead of their weaknesses, they develop a more positive self-identity, grow their capacity for meaningful action, and live happier lives.
