The Ripple Effect of Strengths
A strengths-based approach also provides the language to create a strong company culture throughout the organisation, providing a progressive flow from initial recruitment through all stages of the employment cycle.
By exploring patterns of strengths in individuals, the emphasis becomes one of leveraging what people are best at while recognising and managing those situations they may not handle so well. We can address weaknesses and unrealised strengths through considered task allocation, complementary partnering, or strategic team building.
Gaining an in-depth understanding of your strengths beyond commonly recognised ‘talents’ offers genuine insight and can lead to self-development opportunities and the discovery of genuine passions.
Perhaps you have the strength of an ‘Enabler’ – where you create the conditions for other people to grow and develop for themselves. Have you considered yourself a ‘Counterpoint’ – having a communication strength where you always bring a different viewpoint to others, whatever the situation or context? Are you a ‘Time Optimiser’, maximising your time to get the most out of whatever time you have available? Have you appreciated your teammates ‘Moral Compass’ as a strength lately? Do you recognise those who ‘Bounceback’ from setbacks, using mistakes as springboards to go and achieve more? The possibilities are endless when we truly understand our strengths and those of our team.
