We are each fearfully & wonderfully made with a combination of talents that God gifts us with that make you unique among everyone who has ever lived. The talents are the source of the strengths we have to serve God and accomplish the good works He has prepared in advance for us to do. Building on what is learned in the 101 Strengths Advocate, the goal of this course is to provide a concrete understanding of an individual’s strengths as well as an overall knowledge of each of the 34 talent themes.
The Strengths Advisor 201 course equips advisors to work with one-on-one with others to help them understand their God-given strengths and apply what they “do best” in their life and in ministry. As a result of this training, participants are equipped with skills designed to help others understand and express their unique ministry within their congregation or faith community.
These same strengths are the source of the best work we do and the ways we have to bless the people we live & serve beside. Come to this workshop where you’ll learn about your own top 5 strengths and receive tools with which to help others around you to understand their strengths too.

We know that developing new skills doesn't happen overnight. People need several touch points over time where past knowledge is built upon, new connections are created, and real-life practice opportunities are made available. Mastering Emotional Intelligence Level 2 was created to follow Mastering Emotional Intelligence Level 1 with this very goal in mind.
Mastering Emotional Intelligence Level 2 will push participants to think in new ways about how their emotions operate day-to-day, considering the moments at work and in life that often go undetected or dismissed—and unresolved. Through the latest in adult learning techniques, Mastering Emotional Intelligence Level 2 will facilitate conversations, self-reflection, thinking, and skill practice to build savvier approaches to dealing with daily hassles and big challenges.
