The staff of CivSource Africa along with colleagues at the American Jewish World Service (AJWS), participated in a two-day learning retreat. The retreat was based on the Clifton StrengthsFinder, an assessment tool that enables one find and work from their strengths. The ethos of the StrengthsFinder is that we work best when we know and maximize our strengths. In other words, there is no more effective way to empower people than to see each person in terms of his or her strengths.
It was a great learning experience for the staff of the two organizations and we are confident we will enhance the productivity of our staff. CivSource Africa and AJWS share a mutual work relationship.
