The Freak Factor: Discovering Uniqueness by Flaunting Weakness

Speaker: David Rendall

Date & Time:  Tuesday, August 28:  12:30 PM - 4:00 PM (Lunch included)

Location:  Sheraton Imperial


What do you wish you could change about yourself? Are you too loud or too quiet, too hyperactive or too sedentary, too organized or too messy? You get the idea.

Most people think that they should find and fix their weaknesses. However, most of us never make much progress trying to eliminate our worst traits. In fact, our weaknesses are actually the best clue to our strengths. In this funny and counter-intuitive talk, David shows how to find success and improve performance by starting with weaknesses — and embracing them rather than trying to deny them.

We will also complete an assessment, which will help you identify your unique strength/weakness combinations, and discuss how to use the freak factor to improve employee engagement and productivity.
