The 2013 Young Professionals of Ames (YPA) Leadership Symposium, in partnership with the Ames Chamber of Commerce, is holding "Uncovering Your Strengths through Strengths Finders" on Friday, Nov. 22, from 12-4 p.m. Lunch is included and the event will be held at the Holiday Inn Ames Conference Center (2609 University Blvd.).

YPA and the Ames Chamber of Commerce are jointly offering this opportunity to help individuals uncover strengths using Strengths Finders. During this symposium, participants will learn more about individual strengths, how to apply those strengths in different environments and how to leverage strengths in a leadership capacity. Led by Dr. Stephanie Zywicki, this symposium is highly interactive and engaging—participants will leave with a greater awareness of the strengths development philosophy and an action plan for their own strengths development.

The event is open to all Ames Chamber members for $35/each. Participants will need to come with their top five strengths determined by Gallup’s book, Strengths Finders 2.0. Access to the quiz will be provided to those who register and the quiz must be completed in advance. Register at by Nov. 15. For more information, call the Chamber office at 515-232-2310.

The event is sponsored by Kreg Tool and Munn Lumber.
