How much of your time is spent doing what you do best? At Your Best is designed for groups and individuals who want to dramatically increase their specific contributions by giving their best and living a strong life at work and at home.

Our emphasis is not so much on changing the work you do, but rather changing how you do the work you do. We’ll look at existing work and job descriptions, and look at ways for you to be happier, stronger, more effective, and more productive in your existing role. We’ll look for ways to spend more time doing what you do best, what you naturally excel at, and what you love within existing frameworks.

Identify your talents, build them into strengths, and become the consistently high-performer you were meant to be. By uncovering your strengths and seeing real-world examples of them in action, you will build a database of talent that you can access to target project roles for maximum efficiency and engagement. By engaging these strengths you will be able to give more effort, more enthusiasm and achieve better results.

At Your Best targets three ‘sweet spots’ for maximum engagement:

  1. The Fun Life – Increasing your happiness, savoring, sense of play and delight
  2. The Strong Life – Using your strengths to enter a zone of effortless productivity that psychologists have termed flow.
  3. The Meaningful Life – Focus beyond yourself whether it’s your work team, a common goal, your family, community, or spirituality

Best of the Best

At Your Best is the culmination of 20 years of working with teams and individuals, researching, coaching, and speaking for Rob Fletcher, founder of Quixote Consulting. This program, and the forthcoming companion book of the same name is a synthesis of his 20 years in the fields of strengths, positive psychology, music, resiliency and engagement.

Practical and Applicable

At Quixote, we know how important it is for any new training knowledge to be practical and applicable. Thatís why we put such great emphasis on immediate and realistic application. Participants leave with a plan in place for employing their strengths in the coming week and beyond.

Energetic and Fun

We also know that people respond best to presentations that are energetic, interactive and fun. There is always laughter in the session. And the unique methodologies we employ definitely help – we’ve used the modalities of chocolate and even wine pairing to explore team strengths. Any of our fun team building programs is easily combined with our training programs to create that magical mix of meaningful fun.

Lasting Impact

Participants walk away from the session with practical tools that can be immediately applied to their individual work situations, as well as a vision of the powerful productivity possible in a team that recognizes and leverages all team members’ strengths. We stretch our time together (and your training dollars) by offering (optional) pre-workshop assignments, post-event success tools and coaching.

Customization

We customize key components of the workshop to ensure that you get the right material to the right people at the right time, maximizing the return on your investment. We take into account your unique team situation and your desired outcomes.

We also recommend:

  • Individual coaching to maximize the effectiveness of your training investment
  • Fun team building events all of which are designed to explore the Strong Teams in an enjoyable, interactive setting
