January Supervisors’ Connection, Strengths-based Management Styles


North Shore Community College will hold their January Supervisors’ Connection, Strengths-based Management Styles, Wednesday, January 16, 2019, from 8-10 a.m. at NSCC’s Corporate Training Solutions (CTS), 1 Ferncroft Road, DS106, Danvers. Cost is $49 per workshop.

As a manager, what do you notice when you focus in on the people that work for you? Think of your mental checklist as you scan for how things are going at work…do you see any issues or problems that rise to the level where you need to say or do something, to keep things on track? Wait – I thought you were focused in on the people that work for you? What they do wrong or could do better for sure, but equally, are you looking for what they do and say that adds value and is good (or great) about their work? Strengths-based management is when you notice how people and teams are using their talents & strengths to deliver positive outcomes and impact. Being able to speak openly about the talents & strengths you see, and to offer insight, feedback, and coaching that encourages the growth of these strengths and capacity to use them even more at work is the most significant impact you’ll ever have as a manager (and leader). Where do you want to spend most of your time at work: looking for employee’s problems or growing their talents into strengths?
