"Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day?" Chances are, you do not. All too often, our natural talents go untapped. Full human potential is realized only when people are in a position to use their greatest talents. The Bauer StrengthsQuest Series will help you to discover your natural talents, teach you how to develop your talents into strengths and help you begin to understand how to apply your strengths during your experiences on campus and in the workplace. During the series, we will have meaningful discussions and interactive activities that will help you develop strengths by building on your greatest talents.

StrengthsQuest Series Learning Outcomes

By participating in the Bauer StrengthsQuest Series, students will:

  • Understand the strengths-based approach versus the conventional approach to personal development.
  • Understand the difference between talents, themes and strengths and how to develop talents into strengths.
  • Evaluate their own understanding about what they do best and recognize the unique, but different, talents of others.
  • Recognize the evidence of and discuss the role of their themes of talent in their personal behavior.
