November Monthly Meeting: Working Those Strengths: Strength Finders Revisited 8:30am-10:30am


November is your last chance this year to discover your strengths.

Earlier this year we took the first steps in our personal professional development based on each of our strengths. After taking the test we talked about how we can put our strengths to work in developing skills, improving how we work together and how we manage our jobs. For many it was an eye-opening meeting that offered great personal discovery.

In November we will come together again and talk about how we’ve used this new knowledge and learn new steps to take in furthering our development.
If you didn’t have a chance to join us for the discovery earlier this year, you have one more chance to join in!

Click here to send us a message requesting a Strength Finders code and link to take your personal test. For VAN members, the test is free. For non-VAN members, there is a $10 charge for the code.

To view the complete list of strengths as defined by the Gallup organization, see: http://www.strengthstest.com/strengths-finder-themes

Join us on November 17 to learn how other VAN members are using their strengths. Watch Facebook for the meeting location.
