On March 4, HR.com is hosting my complimentary webinar on Double Learner Motivation with Revolutionary Strengths-Based Leadership. In this fast-paced session I’ll discuss why a huge part of the leadership development gap is caused by traditional needs assessments and gap analysis. This weakness-based approach is ineffective and undermines participant motivation for change. I’ll show pre and post studies examining the impact of leaders choosing to fix weaknesses versus building on existing strengths. 12 to 18 months later, the leaders who magnified their existing strengths showed two – three times more improvement in leadership effectiveness than leaders who worked on fixing their weaknesses.
The archived webinar is open for everyone to join once you register on the HR.com web site (no charge for either). Following the webinar, participants who are working on their IHR designation will be asked to complete the following quiz based on what I’ve covered.
If you’ve been a regular blog reader since last fall you should have no trouble answering this online quiz. Complete the quiz online or send us your answers by email and you could win one of two copies of How to Be Exceptional: Drive Leadership Success by Magnifying Your Strengths. We’ll draw the two most correct responses from American and Canadian participants and mail you a complimentary copy of the new book.
