Team Building by a Certified StrengthsFinder Coach

Team Building and Development

Activate Your Talent’s Certified StrengthsFinder Coach has a team building process that has the power to build great teams by infusing energy into your team and giving them the ultimate competitive advantage- focusing on their unique and undeniable Strengths!

Why should you and/or your team focus on your Strengths? Listen to this from our founder, Katie Christy, explaining the basics and benefits of the StrengthsFinder assessment.

The process is designed to focus on team building, improve team cohesion, and give your team a vision for operating effectively in the future. Here is a list of possible session topics:

Finding and Flexing Your Strengths Group Session:

  • Finding and Flexing Your Strengths is a highly interactive 2-hour group session conducted by a Certified StrengthsFinder coach and is grounded in Positive Psychology that provides an introduction to the StrengthsFinder assessment. The first part of the session will provide an increased self-awareness of individuals’ unique Strengths. The second part of the session will focus on the successful activation of these Strengths within an organization.
  • Participants will be encouraged to take ownership of their personal and professional development by laying out an specific plan for leveraging both their own, and their team members’, Strengths. They will be challenged to intentionally incorporate their Strengths in their responses to events.

Powerful Partnerships Strengths Group Session:

  • Powerful Partnerships is a powerful 2-hour group session conducted by a Certified StrengthsFinder coach that provides a deeper understanding the StrengthsFinder assessment. The first part of the session will provide an overview of the team’s combined Strengths Grid. The second part of the session will focus on increasing productivity and engagement by leveraging their unique Strengths in Powerful Partnerships within the team.
  • Participants will be encouraged to come up with strategies for collaboration on both daily/rote and long term/creative projects. Participants will be paired up twice- once with team members with similar Strengths and once with team members with different Strengths- in order to show the diversity and depth of the Alchemy team.

Johari’s Window:

  • Johari’s Window is a dynamic session conducted by a Certified StrengthsFinder coach that provides individuals with greater sense of self-awareness via the StrengthsFinder assessment. The session will focus on helping individuals, and their respective organization, understand their known and unknown behaviors, potential, and talent by examining past examples of success.
  • Completing a Johari Window helps team members understand the value of self-disclosure and constructive feedback. Done sensitively, it can help organizations build better, more trusting relationships with one another, solve issues, and work more effectively as a team.

Theme Dynamics:

  • Theme Dynamics is an engaging session conducted by a Certified StrengthsFinder coach that helps individuals understand the dynamics that exist between and among their Strengths. This session will focus on building an authentic leadership style that draws on multiple Strengths. While each talent theme expresses itself alone in predictable ways, when combined, themes influence each other in myriad ways. The more individuals know about their themes in relation to each other, the more they will understand them and use them in day-to-day life. 
  • Participants will learn what theme dynamics are, how they shape our personalities and how they drive our actions. They will also begin to understand how to leverage their unique theme dynamics to maximize their contributions to the organization

AYT’s team building programs have watched make a significant impact on many different kinds of organizations. In fact, one of their sessions was selected as an offering at SXSW Interactive 2015 where it was met with rave reviews!

I feel like I learned so many things about my peers on a more personal level than I had known before, thus bringing us closer together. I was reminded that each team member has the same passion for and dedication to what our organization is trying to accomplish, but we each have our own strengths and our own processes in achieving those goals.
