Strength Based Teams

Supervisors and managers who have completed the Gallup StrengthsFinder® assessment and introduction through Supervising in State Government, Vermont Certified Public Manager® Program, or special workshop, may enroll their teams.

Cost: $24.99 per participant to cover the cost of the StrengthsFinder® assessment.  If you have already taken the assessment and can provide the results, there is no cost.  

Important HR Topics

HR topics for supervisors and/or employees are offered as electives at CAPS, and may be brought to divisions, departments, and agencies by special arrangement. Common subject matter includes:

  • Stepping up to Supervision
  • Respect in the Workplace (professionalism and inclusion)
  • Preventing Sexual Harassment
  • The SOV Performance Management System
  • Interviewing and Hiring
  • Special Wellness topics

These services may take the form of workshops which bring together several small teams to work independently on a common topic (e.g. team strengths). Or, we may work with Agency, Department or Division leadership to provide training or to help identify appropriate external resources.
