Training Objectives:

Short exercises are given to illuminate some ways in which research, technology and financial changes impact each person’s life, right now. This occurs when you as training participants recall experiences, which have come close to being self-actualizing. These are then named “good experiences,” defined as: “something you feel you did well, that you also enjoyed doing and are proud of”. Through a combination of individual and group exercises, each of you will deeply explore your "good experiences" and articulate the core “Dependable Strengths” you possess. You will utilize a Dependable Strengths Profile Chart and a reality-test process to build on the earlier work you did. The strengths that are then uncovered are your most highly motivated strengths.  You will proceed to exercises that lead to incorporating your dependable strengths into high performance, enjoyable and career-developing activities. Care is given to valuing both paid and unpaid work, as well as to activities like education, play, hobbies and homemaking. During the course of the Dependable Strengths training, you will ultimately:

  • Identify good experiences
  • Develop a Dependable Strengths Report
  • Access your strengths and open up new opportunities
  • Learn to articulate your worth
  • Learn to make contacts
  • Succeed in interviews  
  • Learn to access support and increase self esteem.
