Attend a Core Strengths Workshop to Learn the How of Working Better Together and Improve Team Effectiveness.
It’s a big promise, but we mean it — and we have 43 years of results to back it. Those results include more than two million people across thousands of organizations, who work with more purpose, satisfaction, and success with the help of Core Strengths.
That’s because the ability to interact effectively with people isn’t a ‘nice-to-have’ – today – its non-negotiable. New goals, different team members, and changing roles, structures and account-abilities are realities that generate poor performance. Faulty work relationships often result in conflict that impact every aspect of delivering projects on plan and on budget. It is not the lack of knowledge, skills or motivation, but the mismanagement of relationships that creates the greatest cost to work teams.
People are complex, and that can make interacting with people challenging. At times, it can make them downright difficult – but relationships don’t have to be. Today, managers need people to understand that everyone speaks a unique ‘collaboration language’. That’s where Core Strengths comes in. Our training helps managers and teams understand their own language, and the languages other people speak. It provides even further understanding of how those languages change during conflict and, in turn, how to prevent, manage and resolve it. Therefore, improving team effectiveness within organization.
“A large bank was concerned that its managers weren’t being accountable for problems in their branches. They were referring too many interpersonal conflicts to Human Resources. Core Strengths improved their interpersonal skill ratings by 67%. Additionally, a subsequent study showed that these managers cut the amount of time they spent dealing with conflict by 25%. When the managers chose to take accountability for their high-stake situations, they not only improved real-time results, they also cut their employee turnover rate in half.”

This brings the learning to life by connecting key concepts with real-world challenges from a familiar and time-sensitive context. Not only are participants encouraged to put their new insights to an immediate test, but they are also given a clear and repeatable process to follow in other situations, thus making Core Strengths sustainable long after the initial classroom experience.
