Exploring the Six Types of Working Genius

June 18, 2024

Who Should Attend:

Supervisors and managers, and anyone who works on a team.

Webinar Description:

Whether you're leading a team or working within one, this course offers valuable insights and practical strategies that can enhance team dynamics, boost collaboration, and elevate overall workplace satisfaction.

Imagine your daily energy as a cup of hot coffee or tea. After a regular day at work, does it feel like your energy remained consistently hot throughout the day like it would in an insulated thermos, or do you feel like you were drinking coffee out of an old paper cup covered in holes? When it comes to productivity, there are certain tasks that are more energizing and fulfilling, and other tasks that drain the life force out of us. Thus is the nature of our working genius.

There are six types of working genius—two will energize and fulfill you, two will be life-sucking, and two will be tolerable but slowly draining over time. When the working geniuses of team members combine in positive and productive ways, they transform an entire team’s potential and enhance the results the team achieves.

Curious about what your working geniuses might be? Join us for this engaging and informative program as we explore the Six Types of Working Genius.
