Fall Forum Registration

StrengthsFinder

One of the breakout session choices will be an introductory session about StrengthsFinder and how to make the most of your strengths. If you have not taken the StrengthsFinder or StrengthsQuest assessment, you can purchase a code and complete the assessment on the Gallup website. If you are interested in purchasing a book about Strengths, we recommend Strengths Based Leadership. The book includes a code for the Strengths assessment. If you plan to attend this session, please bring your Strengths results with you.

Listening/Conversation Session

An additional Listening/Conversation Session will take place on Friday, November 14, from 11:30-1:30 p.m. in Harper 3023. People who cannot attend the Fall Forum are encouraged to attend this luncheon to discuss Creighton's strengths and campus climate. Registration is now open!
