Gain insight into the CliftonStrengths talent theme of Woo: how to invest in it, if it's one of your dominant talents, and how to develop it in others.
Many of us buy into the myth that talent and motivation are totally separate things. A strengths-based approach, however, debunks this. Simply put, your talents are your motivations; they're usually inseparable. A strengths expert explains.
Corporate managers routinely subject employees to performance reviews that emphasize people's "areas for improvement," not their talents. The problem with this approach is that by focusing on weaknesses, organizations fail to capitalize on their employees' strengths. It's time to view your people differently.
People strong in the Woo theme love the challenge of meeting new people and winning them over. They derive satisfaction from breaking the ice and making a connection with another person.
