The greatest gift you ever give is your honest self.” - Fred Rogers

Are you exceptional?  Every person has special gifts to share with others, which brings a purpose to their life. Do you know yourlife's purpose and your gifts? Leadership begins by knowing yourself, and what makes you unique as a leader.

 Just as companies and organizations have mission statement, it is important to create what your leadership mission statement is.  This document gives you a way to communicate your passion, gifts, values and goals to yourself and others. Your mission statement allows you to be  an authentic leader, and gives you a navigation tool to share your unique gifts.  When you live your mission you set an example that helps others share their unique gifts too.

Participants in this workshop will:

·         Determine and define what special gifts she/he has to offer
·         Develop a personal mission statement and development plan
·         Create strategies to live his/her life’s passion and gifts

What benefit does this workshop give to your department or organization?  When an employee knows, understands and has a plan for living her/his gifts, he/she brings energy and excitement to work.  Having a life's mission allows the employee to utilize her/his gifts and strengths to perform at his/her best at work on a daily basis.  Research shows that employees who are using her/his strengths and gifts are six times more likely to be engaged at work, which equals higher productivity and a great contribution to the success of the team, department, and organization.
