Everyone wonders where their true strengths lie. Each year millions devote themselves to discovering those strengths for the first time, and building those strengths into true potential. What most people don’t realize is the level of confidence it takes to get there.

And that limits them.

In spite of decades of clichés and motivational speeches about confidence, true confidence has a radically different set of rules than what tradition tells us. Regardless if you’re in sales, marketing, consulting, public relations, finance or leadership, confidence is perhaps the greatest catalyst of human achievement, and deserves undivided attention.

Based on a fascinating, eight-year study of human strengths and confidence, Catalyst reveals the true confidence that sets top performers apart from everyone else. Discover the social science that redefines what it means to be confident, and get infinitely more from the strengths of every person in your company.

A workshop to help clients build the ultimate team and team players.

When you ask people the last time was that they were on a high-performing team, the average answer is 5.9 years ago. That’s 5.9 years too long. Being a team player ranked higher than all factors, including merit and performance, leadership skills, intelligence, making money for the organization and working long hours.

When Steven Smith works with teams from companies like Disney, Hilton, State Farm, Cox, Halliburton and Microsoft, they are 48.9% more effective once they’ve been through his training and measured their performance.
