CMP encompasses a diverse range of leaders and managers, from administrative roles to those overseeing operations in the harbor. Recognizing the need for a tailored approach to leadership development, we partnered with Session to design a program for our newly appointed leaders. This initiative aims to align them with CMP's way of leading. What distinguishes Session's training approach is its practicality and straightforwardness, making it accessible to leaders across various roles. This effectiveness has not only equipped our leaders with new skills but also ensured the practical application of these skills post-training. We regard our collaboration with Session as a valuable investment and confidently recommend their services for impactful leadership development.

Key Benefits of Strengths Based Leadership Development

Session is an authority in the field of strengths-based leadership. We have more than 20 years of experience with leadership development, working with executives, managers and leaders, talents as well as MBA students from numerous organizations of all sizes. Here are some of the key benefits of the strengths-based leadership approach:

  • Increased employee engagement

    When leaders focus on their strengths, they are more engaged and motivated in their work (numerous studies by Gallup shows this!). When you use your natural talents and abilities, things flow easier for you and you bring your best self to work.

  • Improved productivity

    When employees are engaged and motivated, they are more productive, because when using your strengths, you put your full effort into the work and apply the best of what you have to the benefit of all.

  • Enhanced innovation

    Bringing your strengths to work, you are more likely to be innovative, willing to take risks and try out new things.

  • Increased team cohesion

    When leaders focus on the strengths of their team members, they create a cohesive and supportive team environment. This is because team members are more likely to feel valued and appreciated when their strengths are recognized.

  • Improved decision-making

    Wise decision making comes out of educated choices. The choices we make are dependent on our ability to spot what works and what doesn’t. Having an eye for strengths helps you in making better decisions.

  • Reduced stress and burnout

    Creating workplaces where people thrive due to high engagement, happiness and fun at work (an outcome of being able to bring your strengths to work) prevents stress and burnout.

  • Increased self-confidence

    When leaders focus on their strengths, they are more likely to develop a strong sense of self-confidence. This is because you - when using your strengths - are more successful in your work and thus also receive more positive feedback from others.

  • Improved leadership skills

    Strengths-based leadership development helps leaders improve their overall leadership skills by giving a clear framework for how to best conduct 1:1’s, solve conflicts, engage and develop the team, prevent stress, run strategic workshops, lead great meetings, and more.
