The fee for the seminar is $35, which includes a pre-assessment of strengths to be taken online that will help individuals understand how to harness their top five strengths out of the following list:
Achiever, activator, adaptability, analytical, arranger, belief, command, communication, competition, connectedness, consistency, context, deliberative, developer, discipline, empathy, focus, futuristic, harmony, ideation, includer, individualization, input, intellection, learner, maximizer, positivity, relater, responsibility, restorative, self-assurance, significance, strategic and woo, which stands for winning others over.
To sign up, go to www.recreatestrengths.com, registration closes March 17.
The seminar will be conducted by Sarah Davis, a member of the Coronado Auxiliary whose company, reCreate, works with organizations and individuals nationally, helping them identify, embrace and focus their personal strengths into the most fulfilling and constructive paths for personal and professional development.
“We’re going to ask participants to bring their reports with them to the seminar,” Davis said. “We’ll then participate in activities that will help them understand their strengths and how they can apply them to their lives..”
For those who want to go further, a follow-up workshop may be scheduled.
Davis holds a bachelors degree in marketing from Kennesaw State University in Georgia, where she attended on an academic scholarship. She relocated to California in 2008. Davis is a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach. Gallup is a 75-year-old research-based company, which also certified Davis’s partner, Jennifer Fore. A third partner, Amanda Flisher is obtaining her certified coach certification through International Coach Federation. She is also a Gallup Strengths Coach.
It was while working in the field of private education, that Davis’s company selected her to participate in their Future Leaders Program and she was introduced to Clifton StrengthsFinder. After completing the leadership program, Davis decided to turn her own passions and abilities into her career of strengths developments in others, which led her to found reCreate.
Rather than teaching new traits or skills, strengths finding is about taking talents that already exist in a person or team and recreating them into strengths through coaching, training, and consulting.
Davis coaches teams in corporate America, particularly in the fields of real estate and education as well as nonprofits across the country and also has several independent clients including college students that she works with one-on-one.
A portion of the proceeds from the seminar will go towards In - Unit fundraising of the Coronado Unit of Rady Children’s Hospital. The Coronado Unit was formed in February 2013 and is still accepting members. For information on membership, contact chapter chairman Dr. Rev. Marilyn Menges at 619-791-6344.
