What is Power Up Your Strengths?

Doesn’t it make sense that we’ll be most effective if we align work with what people naturally do well? Power Up Your Strengths is a certification program designed to help you become better equipped to bring out the talents of others. Inspired by the CliftonStrengths® assessment, you’ll finish the program ready to help people do what they do best. And you’ll enjoy doing so, too!

Who is this for?

If you’re:

  • Passionate about transforming company culture
  • A leader who wants to deeply understand your team’s strengths
  • A coach or trainer
  • Doing some work with CliftonStrengths® but haven’t gotten certified yet
  • Strengths curious and want to understand it better

This program may be for you!

Whether you want to coach others on their strengths or simply be the strengths cheerleader at your organization, this certification will get you doing just that.

What will I learn?

It’s all about focusing on what others do well instead of fixating on their weaknesses. Using the CliftonStrengths® tools, you will learn how to help others understand their top strengths and how to put them into practice. We’ll accomplish this by diving into your own assessment, with plenty of hands-on experience, and through the guidance of several strength experts.

Module 1 Take the CliftonStrengths® assessment, personalize your report, meet your cohort and deep dive into ten of the Talent Themes.
Module 2 Deepen your knowledge of the CliftonStrengths® tool by experiencing a four hour workshop. Post work will include learning about additional Talent Themes and reflecting on your learning.
Module 3 Review the final group of Talent Themes to deepen your knowledge then prepare for a 1:1 debrief.
Module 4 Learn how to provide a 1:1 debrief to others including best practices, what to avoid and customizable tools to help you prepare.
Module 5 Review a full 60-minute debrief and complete a 1:1 meeting with one of your strengths coaches.
Module 6 Apply what you’ve learned by completing three practice debriefs and submit your best debrief assessment for certification.
Module 7 Explore techniques and tools for ongoing client goals to aim their strengths. Celebrate completion of the program. Establish connections for future networking. Explore opportunities to build on a strengths culture.
