Creating a strengths-based, high-energy culture in your school

Athletics and extracurricular activities are vital to extend learning beyond the classroom. The student leaders of these organizations are often elected to positions of leadership without sufficient training or opportunities to learn the important aspects of leadership that will maximize their performance. In addition, the leaders need help to coordinate the unity of all the extracurricular programs in the school where all student interests are honored and recognized.

We develop customized programs to address the specific challenges of your school. In these programs student leaders, teachers, and coaches will identify their personal strengths so they can better understand how they apply in their roles. In addition, they will gain an appreciation for the strengths of others, understand the importance of diverse strengths on a team, and how they can be leveraged for success. When you understand what matters, and how to work with the strengths of your teammates, anything is possible!

If you’re looking for a way to motivate your student-athletes or team, then look no further than Daneli Partners! This program is something every student needs. Enjoy watching their faces when they recognize they have the what it takes to be great.”

How It Works

Each program is two to three-hour, half-day session with a minimum of twenty students. Programs include a combination of instruction, video, team exercises, student sharing, small group activities, and leader stories. The program is typically broken down into three parts:

Introduction to Gallup CliftonStrengths and understanding your individual results.

Learn how to own your individual innate talents and invest in developing strengths.

Learn how to leverage and communicate your strengths, in order to have all of the extracurricular activities work collectively to enhance all aspects of your school.

Prior to each session, students complete the Gallup CliftonStrengths Top 5 online assessment. Daneli Partners will provide access codes for everyone. Students often complete them as a group in a computer lab prior to the meetings. They should arrive with their personal printed Strengths Insight Guide.
