    WORKSHOP ONE OVERVIEW
    DISCOVER YOUR DESIGNER DNA

    WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF WE COULD FINALLY PUT A NAME TO THE THINGS WE DO BEST – OUR INNATE PERSONALITY STRENGTHS…AND ACCESS THEM DAILY TO HELP ACHIEVE OUR PERSONAL AND CAREER GOALS?

    We all have talents; naturally recurring ways of thinking, feeling, or behaving that can be productively applied.  We use them every day to achieve what we are responsible for.  The challenge is that talents are innate.  We just do them without thinking.  So it can be difficult for us to describe them to others and even see the value in them ourselves.  An example of this is to think about the question, ‘What is one positive word people used to describe you?’ Many of us find this difficult to quickly answer.

    This online workshop is designed to provide an overview of CliftonStrengths as a language of development. You will be sent a link to the CliftonStrengths questionnaire before the workshop.

     In this workshop you will:

    • Learn about the origin, theory and the power of CliftonStrengths
    • Identify your strengths, understand and see where you are leveraging them
    • Find out how to apply your strengths in your work by partnering with others

    We all love a personality test.  We start by completing a CliftonStrengths profile which helps to identify and describe your talents.  The trick with any profile is that it is most powerful when you understand how to apply them uniquely to you.  This workshop is designed to help you discover:

    • How to get the best out of you! Understand your 1 in 33 million point of difference.  Be able to confidently voice the unique way you approach your work.  What you are good at, and why?
    • How to get the best out of others. Increase empathy for others, consider how we all do things differently and that through intentional partnerships you can make our work more impactful
    • Tools to get right information from those you work with through adapting your style, by leveraging your talents and most importantly by asking the right questions
    Who is this for?
    • Creative Directors
    • Design Directors
    • Account Managers
    • Design Studio Owners
    • People moving into leadership roles, team managers
    • Employees across all functions and roles; whether designers or the teams and roles that support them
    • Freelance or contract designers looking to unlock natural strengths and turn them into their unique point of difference

    Consider more than one person attending from your team to improve the collaboration between you. This workshop is the starting point for other Strengths-based workshops, such as ‘Maker to Manager’ coming up later in the year.

    What will I walk away with?
    • One action to apply strengths within the work you do and the clients you work with

    I would be keen on my team also doing the questionnaire for themselves, as I found there were helpful insights in my report and was surprised by some of them." - Mary Adams, Pōneke workshop attendee
