    October Education Program
    The Freak Factor:
    Discovering Uniqueness by Flaunting Weakness
    Keynote: David Rendall

    Event Description

    What's your problem? I'm serious. What do you wish you could change about yourself? What is the complaint that you hear the most from those closest to you, your friends, co-workers, and family members? Are you too loud or too quiet, too hyperactive or too sedentary, too organized or too messy? You get the idea.

    So, what should you do? Most people think that they should find and fix their weaknesses. Unfortunately, this just leads to frustration and failure. Your weaknesses are actually the best clue to your strengths.

    Furthermore, building your strengths, not fixing your weaknesses, is your best strategy for success.

    Learner Outcomes

    • Discover your distinctive strengths and weaknesses
    • Frame your unique characteristics in a positive way
    • Find situations that highlight your positive qualities
    • Maximize your self-control Implement permanent procrastination
