It's time to update our thinking about work. Marcus Buckingham (creator of StrengthsFinder) and Ashley Goodall (Leadership and Team Intelligence head at Cisco) wrote Nine Lies About Work: A Freethinking Leader's Guide to the Real World to expose the faulty assumptions we encounter every day at work. Helpfully, they replaced those falsehoods with new truths, recognizing how the power and beauty of our individual uniqueness has changed the long-accepted dogma of "what matters most at work."

This workshop explores three of those debunked myths and the more timely truths that replace them. It turns out who you are as an individual is a critical factor that must be considered when defining the core truths about work.

Participants will:

  • Learn three exposed lies/new truths from the book Nine Lies About Work.
  • Understand your organizational position through cascading meaning.
  • Affirm that the strength of the team is what matters most.
  • Link what you love most to your success.
