    Vision: Create a World that Works Better Mission: Empower Professionals to Develop Talent in the Workplace


On April 11, 2014 Lorinda Schrammel presented The Power of the Strength Zone to our membership.  Our attendees enjoyed our discussion about identifying and leveraging our strengths in the workplace to maximize employee engagement and employee performance.  As supervisors and managers we are better equipped to develop employees based on their natural strengths which can promote higher performing workplaces and support employee engagement.
