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. For more information, click here. Cost: $19.99 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.
