Leadership RI Launches Strengths Tours
Leadership Rhode Island held its inaugural Strengths Tour on Friday. Leaders from five states were in the Ocean State exploring best practices in employee engagement, and economic and workforce development, while making stops at local businesses and government agencies where workers have been trained in Leadership Rhode Island's social enterprise “Make Rhode Island Stronger.”
"We have all these companies that use positive psychology to engage their work site and to get their workers more productive, more profitable and happier, and we get to share this with people from five different states and these individuals will go back inspired by Rhode Island," said Mike Ritz, Executive Director of Leadership Rhode Island.
Gallup recently recognized Rhode Island as the “First Strengths-Based State” in the country. A grant from the Champlin Foundation will allow the out of state visitor tours to continue monthly through 2019.
