Introduction to Strengths

from 60.00

Discovering, appreciating and applying the gifts and talents God has given each person helps us to recognize the grace of God in our lives, and to value one another as uniquely and wonderfully created in God’s image and likeness (Gn 1:26-27, CCC 356-361).

Introduction to Strengths provides pastoral leaders with an understanding of talent research and the use of the StrengthsFinder in parish, diocesan and ministerial settings.
