What Clients Say
“Excellent job keeping us moving forward and not derailing. I would like to use this training with my whole division.”
Middle School Principal
“This was super - perfect for our new team!”
Professional Development Director
“Well worth the time - great to spread in the school to share the strengths vocabulary.”
High School Principal
“It was great to see this group model so much of what we hope all learners across the school will do: building an understanding of our common purpose, working from (our own and each other's) strengths, collaborating on meaningful initiatives, and - maybe most importantly - having fun in the process!”
“Each of us has incredible strengths and our own networks. I'm encouraged by the way we are forging a more focused sense of purpose and vision, together, based on what we can each offer. With a shared set of principles to guide us, I'm excited about what future possibilities lie ahead!”
Director of Curriculum and Staff Development
“The interplay of realised and unrealised strengths in such a diverse group is fascinating and has so much potential to effect change.”
“It was motivating, stimulating and fun working with others to problem solve rather than alone. Experiencing a clearer vision as a team is enlightening and powerful. When we work as a team we forge a more powerful instrument for problem solving then when any one individual can provide. We all realize it takes leadership, commitment and teamwork to be successful and sometimes it is difficult when we are all so busy in our day-to-day work life/balance.”
High School Associate Principal
“I felt most engaged when we have been discussing each other’s strengths. This work goes beyond what we do together. We are enablers towards others understanding their own strengths and utilizing them effectively.”
Elementary School Associate Principal
“Working with a partner to discuss strengths was very engaging. I felt heard and valued.”
“I felt really engaged when we took the time to actually "listen" and "value" what each individual was sharing and experiencing - especially during the individual strengths session. Also being a part of the change agent process.”
High School Associate Principal
“The introductory activities identifying each others' strengths were uplifting and bonding.”
