Trinnie Houghton’s Prepared Presentations:

Strengths-Based Leadership:
Leveraging Your Best

We all know too well where we “need to improve.” How about those areas in which we naturally excel? How can we use our strengths to optimize our leadership? Using the StrengthsFinder assessment contained in StrengthsFInder 2.0 and Strengths-Based Leadership by Tom Rath, we identify our strengths, learn how to leverage them in leadership, and how we can maximize the team’s overall effectiveness.

Relationship Systems Intelligence:
The Critical Ingredient to Evolving Leadership

The presentation introduces relationship systems intelligence. Beyond emotional and social intelligence, which are paramount to effective teams, relationship systems intelligence looks at how we are interconnected, its impact, and how to proactively use it as our organizations evolve.
