Church – Everyone Has A Calling

“You just need to discover what it is. And that calling doesn’t come from God’s voice thundering from above; it comes from His whispers deep within you, from the very essence of your being. God expects nothing more from you than to live that life for which you were created. He wants you to be yourself.” From Living Your Strengths, p. 194

“I absolutely enjoyed the strength finder class. I went home to my husband that night and told him all about it and how interesting all of it was. I had never realized how many different ways people are able to work together and reach their goal. I could’ve listened to Dr. Cave all day!”

Employee, Henderson Engineers

“Dr. Sondra Cave is one of the best professional development/training experts in the United States. We recently had her come to work with a group of our elected officials from around the country. Her strengths-based workshop at our Spring National Meeting was received with open arms and the feedback has been off the charts. Dr. Cave’s desire to facilitate a professional relationship with each individual attendee resulted in a level of professional development unparalleled by other professional development opportunities.”

Derek Kreifels, President, State Financial Officers Foundation

We introduced Strengths Finder to our employees 3 years ago through Sondra Cave and SLC. In the dozens of training sessions she has conducted, Sondra’s passion and her ability to engage our employees is like no other facilitator I’ve ever worked with before.  The positive feedback we’ve received from our employees and the impact it’s had in building more cohesive and effective teams has made this program so worthwhile.  Thank you, Sondra!
