Maggie Harris, Gallup-Certified CliftonStrengths Coach
Nadia Paredes, MA, LMFT, ATR


A compassionate and authentic approach to leadership—whether it be in the context of the workplace, community group, or grassroots cause—is key to building resilience in those we are leading. Through expressive arts practices, along with the CliftonStrengths® for Leaders Assessment, we’ll support our own well-being while creatively exploring the blind spots of our current leadership approach. Using a self-care lens, we’ll come away with new intentions and goals based on our insights—and a practical understanding of how to apply our strengths so they can contribute to, and not interfere with, our success.

About CliftonStrengths® Assessment:
A tool developed by the Gallup Organization, the CliftonStrengths® Assessment is a 30-minute assessment that measures one’s natural patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving. This online session relies on the CliftonStrengths® for Leaders, which provides insights and advice on how to develop your talents into key leadership. For a closer look into the CliftonStrengths® approach to resilience in the workplace, check out this webcast, as part of a web series on workforce challenges.The fee for this program includes the CliftonStrengths® for Leaders Assessment, which is valued at $49.99.
