Strengths Quest is used by more than 600 universities in North America. More than one million people have used Strengths Quest to gain insights into how to use their talents to achieve academic, career, and leadership development. Participants will learn about their specific strengths, how to interpret them, and how to apply them for career success. Learn how to identify and build on your talents to further your career and personal success!

Goal setting is a powerful process. Effective goal setting allows you to impact your career and provides a tool to motivate yourself, turning your vision into reality. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve professionally, you know where you have to concentrate your efforts. This training builds on employee's Strengths and aligns goal setting with personal talents. There is a great deal of difference between the most successful 5 percent of the population and the rest of the nation. The top 5 percent establishes clear, positive, and effective goals for themselves. Learn how to develop effective, specific, and measurable goals that will be included in your annual performance evaluations.
