"Discovering Your Strengths and Thriving in Change: Skills Needed by All Women Working in Community Colleges"

Come to Hood River, a setting that inspires, to discover your particular strengths and how to use those strengths in times of change. Our facilitator is Dr. Cris Cullinen, Training and Development Administrator at the University of Oregon. She will lead this interactive day using the research of Marcus Buckingham. Buckingham and Curt Coffman co-authored a book in 2001, First Break All the Rules that looked at management strategies that successful companies use. Buckingham’s latest book Go Put Your Strengths to Work challenges us to take responsibility for identifying and using our personal strengths in our work and personal lives.
