During the month of October, HBA Dallas-Fort Worth had the pleasure of hosting a series of three webinars to highlight the chapter’s year-long initiative to make bold moves. Gallup certified strengths coach, Heather Johnson, led the hour-long educational sessions for HBA members across the globe on how to leverage their strengths for success in 2020.
The webinars were opened by HBA DFW president, Jennifer Whipkey, where she gave an overview of the mission and vision of the HBA and highlighted the HBA Mentor Circles to entice those on the call to join or ask for more information. The Q&As and chats were monitored by HBA DFW programming director-at-large, Brandy Walton and the webinars were moderated by vice president, Kristi Dover and Courtney Nall, director-at-large for the marketing and communications committee. HBA members and non-members had the ability to interact with Heather and the larger group, share their top five strengths and gain tactics to use their strengths in their daily lives or for the leadership of their teams.
This event reached 50 attendees over the three sessions. The attendees were introduced to the Clifton Strengths philosophy to discover what they naturally do best, learn how to develop their greatest talents into strengths and use their top five strengths to maximize their potential. The third webinar focused on maximizing strengths for their teams. Breakout rooms and real-time polling was used to gauge the audience’s understanding of the importance of their top five strengths, where themes supported their growth, or sometimes where they got in the way. This interactive experience allowed attendees to learn the concepts that Heather presented and gain an understanding of where to professionally grow using their natural talents.
In addition to serving as a Clifton Certified Strengths coach, Heather leads a team as a regional director for Aerie Pharmaceuticals where she mentors women to leverage their strengths for success.
Thank you to Jennifer, Brandy, Kristi and Courtney for volunteering to make this event a success.
