Title: Discovering and Maximizing Your Strengths at Work!
Our very first meet up in 2017 will be happening on 10 January!
We have lined up 2 amazing speakers who will share with us about the importance on leveraging our strengths at work. Research showed that a large number of us spend more time fixing our shortcomings than developing our strengths. This robbed us of opportunities to do what we do best everyday. Our natural talents go to waste.
So come and learn how you can identify your strengths and use it for your career or business. Network with other like-minded individuals.
This is your community for 2017. Make the best of it!
