How to Play to Your Strengths and Develop Competitive Advantage by Alison Warner. In this webinar Alison will take you through the reasons why there is no such thing as a ‘good all-rounder’ and it is only by recognising our true strengths and ‘stretching’ these, can we begin to really enjoy our work and add the most value. Alison will be introducing you to two different assessment tools – Strengthscope, that covers the benefits and potential pitfalls of different strengths, and Talent Dynamics, the only psychometric specifically for entrepreneurs. By understanding your Talent Dynamics profile, it is then clear the activities you should be focusing on where you can be most ‘in-flow’ and who you should surround yourself with. Alison will cover the importance of ensuring a business is in balance and the kinds of situations you may be experiencing if it is out of balance, often caused by having a lack of a particular profile in the business.

After looking after Resourcing for Starbucks for the UK and Ireland, I moved into PizzaExpress in an interim capacity looking after their Recruitment department, before starting my own business coaching and consultancy practice in February 2010 and have never looked back!
