I no longer feel like I’m guessing or winging it when it comes to managing my team to work better together. Core Strengths gave me a blueprint for how to communicate and engage each person, knowing what matters to them. I delegate more strategically and get better work in return because of it. My team feels more invested and even offer up new ideas and solutions we hadn’t considered before. I’m getting the best work out of my team now—because I know how to.


Core Strengths is foundational to our leadership development programs. Our managers are excited by what they learn, and are eager to use the tools and resources. The improvement in working relationships and communication has led to increased accountability, collaboration and innovation. As a result, our sessions are always over-subscribed, with entire divisions asking for sessions dedicated exclusively to their teams.
