Customized Webinars tailor training to your team's specific needs. 

Through customized webinars, HR Learning & Talent Development facilitators can tailor training content to meet a team’s specific needs, determined by research-based assessments, best practices and tools, in an interactive, remote environment.

Team Building with CliftonStrengths

CliftonStrengths, an online talent assessment created by Gallup Inc., is a powerful tool for developing high-performing teams. In this customized workshop, members of a team will take the CliftonStrengths online assessment individually (the cost is $20 per person, purchased by the requesting department, directly through the vendor), then the facilitator will guide the group through the corresponding CliftonStrengths activities that are proven to increase engagement, encourage collaboration, and improve productivity and results. Participants will take away knowledge and skills on how to develop their own, and their team's, efficiency and performance.

Customized Webinar Offerings

Team Building with CliftonStrengths and all Live Webinar topics may be developed into a customized webinar, finely tuned to your team's specific needs. However, if you don’t see a topic that aligns with your needs, please contact us so we can discuss how to develop the skills important for your team.
