Use your unique talents to build influence, create stronger relationships, and reach your highest potential.

To excel, governance professionals need to master both the expected and unpredictable aspects of their work. There are many key relationships to build, moving parts to coordinate, deliverables to meet, and people to influence. This workshop will give participants the opportunity to discover their distinctive combination of talents that can make them truly powerful in their roles as governance professionals. Participants will learn how to apply their natural talents to help them develop a confident presence – regardless of circumstances or conditions that may arise in the workplace.    

The positive psychology program is based on Gallup’s Strengths-based Development. The workshop will be divided into two components, first understanding talents and how they are present in each participant. Then, focusing on their practical application in the various roles and responsibilities of a governance professional.

Participants will have the opportunity to see how an individual’s Strengths Profile can be applied to a variety of corporate secretarial functions: compliance, maintenance of governance framework, communicating and relationship-building with directors, executives, and other stakeholders, ethics, and managing the annual cycle of meetings.


During this workshop, participants discover a clearer path to success, learn about their top talents and acquire strategies/techniques to develop them. The program will allow participants to:

  • Sharpen their positive self-awareness as the CliftonStrengths focuses on potential
  • Understand their natural tendencies (act, think, behave)
  • Discover how they filter their world (emotions, preferences, talents)
  • Develop their influence
  • Increase performance and productivity while navigating the many demands and busy schedule of a governance professional, and 
  • Focus on their areas of greatest talent, while learning to manage blind spots within their overall profile.


Each participant will receive the following:

  • A code for the CliftonStrengths TOP 5 assessment (formerly known as the StrengthsFinder)
  • Strengths Performance Centre workshop workbook
  • A Strengths name badge insert to be shared/displayed during the session

The program was created for both individual and team discovery. Thoughts will be shared around how the program can be leveraged for personal, work team, and even board performance.
