May RoundTable: StrengthsQuest / StrengthsFinder

Date: May 16, 2012
Davanni’s Meeting Room
2500 Riverside Ave
Minneapolis, MN 55454

Presenters: Laura Lankton and Jennifer Kaysen Rogers

StrengthsQuest/StrengthsFinder (SQ/SF) books and concepts have been taking corporations by storm since they came out. Based on the Positive Psychology movement, the Gallup organization developed an assessment of sorts to help people identify their talents.

This RoundTable discussion will ask career professionals to share their StrengthsFinder stories — How have you used this with career clients? Why is this helpful to clients? What questions do you have? Facilitators will share their experiences using the assessment with college students and alumni. Applications in many areas are welcome!

The Minnesota Career Development Association (MCDA) offers monthly RoundTable meetings that focus on selected career development topics to help us become better practitioners. Round-Tables also serve as a time to network with colleagues working in a variety of sectors. Note that you do not need to be a MCDA member. We encourage you to spread the word to your non-MCDA member colleagues.
