Self-awareness is often the key to overcoming challenges faced by creatives. Leading with strengths and increasing emotional intelligence gives creatives an edge in the marketplace.
In this two-part workshop, leadership consultants and college professors Beth Ryan and Cara Dehnert will teach participants to become more self-aware by conducting a certified Gallup StrengthsFinders coaching session and then leading participants through various Emotional Intelligence (EI) assessments. These tools combined will help participants to discover their core talents and strengths and to learn to communicate their offerings with more clarity and confidence for sustainable and successful careers.
