StrengthsFind your Ikigai (生き甲斐): Reinventing your Life

Description


FOR STARTERS, INNOVATORS & ENTREPRENEURS.
We have a FULL HOUSE for our January cohort. To find your Strengths and learn new things while improving yourself and finding your ikigai (生き甲斐), enrol for our next cohort in February: https://strengthsfindikigaispring.peatix.com

ACHIEVING IKIGAI. In Japan, they call such a pursuit as 'ikigai' meaning 'a reason for being'. The word 'ikigai' is usually used to indicate the source of value in one's life or the things that make one's life worthwhile. Invented by Don Clifton, the father of Strengths psychology, StrengthsFinder helps you discover what you naturally do best, learn how to develop your greatest talents, and teach how to work better as a team. It helps you focus on your natural talents and exhibit the skillfulness of high-performance teams.

REINVENT YOUR LIFE. The ability to regularly and continuously adapt to changes in the environment by discovering and designing a new and better version for oneself is highly valued by employers and it is also helpful in your life.

An age-old proverb goes: "Everyone should carefully observe which way his heart draws him, and then choose that way with all his strength." Your next act in life starts now. You may be seeking a job, starting your new career or well into your career yet you are not satisfied in what you’re doing or you feel you are not where you want to be professionally or what you are working on daily no longer resonates with your heart.

If you feel as such, this innovation starterclass may help you. It has been curated by those who have reinvented themselves, made career changes, built multi-disciplinary teams and effectively impacted talents overseas using Strengths-based culture and philosophy. You will also get to listen to life-changing stories from those who have reinvented themselves and benefited from StrengthsFinding.



WHAT YOU GAIN. This starterclass has been curated by those who have reinvented themselves, made career changes, built multi-disciplinary teams and effectively impacted talents overseas using Strengths-based culture and philosophy. You will also get to listen to life-changing stories from those who have reinvented themselves and benefited from StrengthsFinding.

We understand that it is hard to start over and the idea of trading the security you have now for the unknown may bring you anxiety and poor decision. Through this starterclass, learn to get a more accurate picture of your natural talents and skills, craft a more compelling narrative as you pitch for job interviews, build confidence to develop expertise or apply for a different job scope based on a strength you did not know you had, gain appreciation of your team members and colleagues in your new workplace, or simply try out new roles without endangering your current job.


SCIENCE OF HIGH PRODUCTIVITY.
Research shows that many among the general population depend upon their strengths only 20% of the time, while for high-performance teams, that number moves closer to over 75% of the time.
Why? The general population often focuses on what they do not do well and work super hard to improve upon their weakness, while high performers connect deeply to their inner passion and purpose, and couple them with their strengths.


ART OF STRENGTHSFINDING. Whether you've taken your StrengthsFinder 2.0 test previously or this is your first time, experience and immerse yourself in a creative gallery to discover, explore and discuss Strengths in a unique way.


TESTIMONIALS. Here are several overseas and local professionals who have benefited from StrengthsFinding:



“I often have crazy days with my working team where we can't seem to see eye-to-eye with extremely different methods of tackling the same issue. Since understanding the Strengths language, the shroud of misunderstanding about myself cleared and I have had much better working relationships ever since.” - Eugene Goh, business developer in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology start-ups and social impact organisations


“I felt all of the activities and sessions were carefully chosen, well thought of and excellently planned to derive best results. Out of all, I relished much a few sessions like discovering strengths with Gallup.” - Yasmin Mubarak, educational coach and clinical psychologist, Palo Alto University


FAQs

1. Do I have to take the Gallup CliftonStrengths Top 5 Strengths test before coming?

No, you don't need to. While this starterclass fee does not include the Top 5 Strengths test, you may consider taking it here: https://www.gallupstrengthscenter.com/product/en-us/10108/top-5-cliftonstrengths-access

2. What is the Strengths movement and who administers CliftonStrengths?

The Strengths movement began in 2001, when Gallup, the American research-based, global performance-management consultant company, introduced the world to the original CliftonStrengths assessment in 'Now, Discover Your Strengths'. The book became a New York Times bestseller and sold 2 million copies. The creator of the CliftonStrengths, former Gallup chairman Don Clifton (1924-2003), was honoured by the American Psychological Association with a Presidential Commendation as the Father of Strengths-Based Psychology.
