Have you ever wanted to find out your true strengths and how to leverage those within your organization? Have you ever thought if you knew the strengths of your coworkers you could harness this information to work more effectively as a team? The Women In Defense Board was looking for a great team building exercise to start off our FY2015-2016 terms and decided to leverage a session with Marie Murray, a leading Human Capital Strategist trained in building high-performance teams using the Gallup StrengthsFinder.™ Gallup asserts that teams that know their strengths become “more engaged, more productive, and happier.”
Last month the Women in Defense Executive Board took part in the Gallup StrengthsFinder™ guided by Marie Murray, our local Strengths coach. She was able to effectively draw out the strengths of each individual WID board member and taught them how and why they should “borrow” others’ strengths in order to push their organization to peak performance. Marie personalized a Gallup StrengthsFinder™ workshop to our team’s time constraints and specialized purpose. She took the results of the Board’s Gallup reports before the team building session and had real insight prepared. Marie led us in an engaging session and taught our team how to leverage our strengths to work together and how to engage with our members and the greater Tampa Bay defense community. After reflecting on the team builder, WID GTB President, Janel Brown, said “I highly recommend Marie and this type of strengths based team builder. It would be a true asset for any company or organization that is committed to success and wants to form a stronger team. “
