Strong Cincinnati Institute
Research has also shown that employees who regularly use their strengths at work are up to 18 times more likely to be flourishing – to have higher levels of engagement, stronger relationships, and greater levels of accomplishment (Hone, et al 2015). These results lead to higher levels of engagement, performance and well-being in organizations – and we know that stronger non-profit organizations across our city will lead to a stronger Cincinnati.
The Strong Cincinnati Institute activates strengths in individuals and organizations to maximize employee engagement, performance and well-being. The Institute utilizes a blend of five research-based group learning experiences, strategic consultation and customized coaching designed to give participants a deep introduction to the application of strengths in the workplace. The Institute is structured as a cohort model, thus providing opportunities for connection and collaboration among participating organizations. Organizations that complete the Institute become part of the Strong Cincinnati network and gain access to a growing learning community of non-profit organizations across the city that are building strengths-based workplaces.
- 100% of participating organizations move from strengths knowledge to application in the workplace.
- 100% of participants agree that the Institute was a valuable professional learning experience.
- 96% would recommend the Institute to a colleague in another organization.
With sustained application and implementation, Strong Cincinnati Institute organizations can expect to experience increased measures of employee engagement, performance and well-being via the PERMAH Workplace Wellbeing Survey. The Strong Cincinnati network supports sustained culture shifts by providing access to additional tools, resources, professional development events and networking opportunities for member organizations.
