Steve recently led my department in the Strengths Finder assessment. He managed our loud group very well and was very constructive in encouraging participation from all members. The activities he brought with him were engaging and we are continuing to use them. My team is still talking about how this was so helpful in their current position as well as thinking about their goals. I would highly recommend this training with Steve as your facilitator for anyone looking to gain some momentum, confidence, and understanding on their team.
