Increase compassion and reduce judgement in 12 hours*
How well your internal team functions impacts everything from your employee retention and customer satisfaction to your sales and revenue.
But you already knew that.
You might not know, however, what to do when interpersonal friction threatens to derail your team’s success.
That’s why teams call The Strengths Encourager.
* 12 hours is the total workshop hours per participant and can be spread out over 12 weeks if broken down into hourly sessions
When we use our strengths daily, we are more resilient, productive, energized, hopeful, and impactful.
When you book a Team Wellbeing Package, your leadership comes away with a greater awareness of what motivates and demotivates each team member. This knowledge has the power to significantly improve how you interact with, appreciate, and collaborate with each other.
And it gives employees what they need to feel fulfilled in their roles.
Package 1—Intro to CliftonStrengths
Four interactive workshops, each 60-minutes in length, personalized for your team. These can be delivered weekly or bi-weekly via Zoom, or in-person at a full-day event.
All participants also receive codes and instructions to complete Gallup’s CliftonStrengths 34 assessment (+$45 per participant).
Everyone receives personalized Strengths Insights Guides, a Team Grid, and access to Gallup’s portal with a library of resources, videos, and more.
Package 2—Strengths-based Wellbeing
Four interactive workshops, each 60-minutes in length, personalized for your team. These can be delivered weekly or bi-weekly via Zoom, or in-person at a partial-day event.
All participants receive personalized reports about their talent needs, details about what it can look like when our needs aren’t met, and practical tips about how to handle areas of “weakness.” Everyone also completes team exercises designed to bring out the best of us, with the end goal of this package being “less judgement and more compassion.”
Package 3—Strengths-based Leadership for Managers
Four interactive workshops, each 60-minutes in length, personalized for the people-leaders in your team, plus one private coaching session with each manager.

Increase team compassion and reduce interpersonal judgement.
We all have needs that often go unmet. Add a pandemic to the mix and it can sometimes feel as if we’re trying to function with both hands tied behind our backs. This can lead to a lot of judgement and friction within teams.
These Team Wellbeing Packages give you language to talk about how everyone is feeling in such a way that reduces judgement and increases compassion, all while maintaining individual dignity and privacy. The result increases job satisfaction and reduces burnout.
While the information was immediately engaging and practical, I am realizing days out just how profoundly helpful this material will be for years to come. Wendy stirred up needed conversation by providing tools and shared language to better understand our diverse team.

These sessions help you really understand how to utilize your strengths and others around you, which is such a great feeling!

I really enjoyed learning about how strengths work together to create a well rounded team and learning more about my teammates, especially being a new member of this team.
LindseyTeam Session (Virtual, 2021)
I think I understood the concept of Clifton Strengths before the workshop, but Wendy opened up my eyes to many new possibilities for putting that knowledge to work. I feel much better armed and prepared to not only make my job easier, but to provide meaningful support to my teammates.
PatrickTeam Sessions (June 2022)
I enjoyed learning about the strengths of the team for a better understanding of how we fit into our roles and how we work together. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my strengths with the team to feel more understood.

JenniferTeam Session (Virtual, April 2021)
The best self awareness and understanding of the fact that I have strengths and how I can use them to be a better person and a better manager training I have ever had, and I have been taking many classes over the past 3 years. Thank you!
DebbieTeam Sessions (June 2022)
Joining this company/team during a pandemic in a virtual world made it hard to build connections and understand people. This exercise has taken down any walls I may have felt about others on my team and I have a better understanding of them.
GloriaTeam Session (Virtual, March 2021)
This was a great experience! Thanks for facilitating! What was most valuable was understanding how the negative words [sometimes associated with my strengths] are not defining for me.
DorranceTeam Sessions [2020, 2021]
[My session] helped me to embrace my strengths and acknowledge my growth areas with a positive outlook.

Wendy, this was fantastic. You are a gifted facilitator. I would love to work with you again!
JenaTeam Session (Virtual, June 2021)
Knowing yourself is the key to unlocking so much in your own life but we're so quick to judge and compare who we are against other people. What I've learned through this assessment and with the help of Wendy has given me permission to just be myself, because I'm the only one who can do that.
DavidTeam Session (Sept. 2022)
The most valuable aspect of this workshop was finding out what my strengths mean and how I can better apply them in my life and career. What aspects were least valuable? None!
SageTeam Sessions (Virtual, 2020)
We really enjoyed it and it was very well done! Having honest conversations about where there are struggles or differentiation as a team was super helpful and we will have you back when we add to the team!
SamTeam Sessions (In-person, May 2021)

Wendy was absolutely amazing with our group. Her knowledge and passion added an extra level of enjoyment to the workshop. I would do this 10x over to obtain new knowledge on how to better serve my team.
JeromeTeam Session (Virtual, 2022)
The personal deep dive was great because I got to know why I am the way I am. That leading into a team time was valuable to understand that I am important to other people as well.
NoahTeam Sessions (In-person, May 2021)
It's fun to watch someone using their gifts... a coaching session with Wendy is not only learning about my strengths and others, but witnessing someone use theirs to build up others! That's Wendy!
TimTeam Sessions (2022)
Wendy best exemplifies the art of facilitation. Her deep knowledge of StrengthsFinders, her ability to communicate clearly, and her contagious positive energy, made this workshop and the end result of developing ours strengths beyond enjoyable to be a part of.
SergioTeam Session (Virtual, 2022)
The first half was familiar because I have taken a workshop before. But the second half—Core Needs, SLATHY, Balconies, Basements—was all new and extremely helpful!
