Leverage your strengths to unlock performance, energy and potential
Everyone has strengths and the potential to further develop them. Research shows that knowing and growing our strengths helps us feel energised and engaged. We learn faster, perform better and strive to do our best. Realising strengths and the energy that fuels them is a natural route to enhancing valued business outcomes.
The 2016 Gallup State of the Global Workforce report showed some amazing results from using strengths-based interventions on workgroup performance. The survey covered 1.2 million employees in 22 organisations in seven industries and across 45 countries. Ninety % of the workgroups studied had performance increases such as:
- 9% increase in sales
- 15% increase in profits
- 4% increase in customer engagement
- 10% lower turnover in low-turnover organisations
- 46% lower turnover in high-turnover organisations
- 6% increase in engaged employees
- 37% fewer safety incidents
Ultimately, the strengths-based management approach is shown to improve employee wellbeing and boost productivity in all areas. If you are keen to leverage this approach, there is a tool that you can use to maximise this opportunity and unlock the potential of individuals in your organisation.
Strengths Profile is a world-leading strengths tool that changes the way we assess, develop and leverage talent in people. Strengths Profile is built from a decade of theoretical and empirical research in positive psychology and has been taken by more than1 million people across 90 countries.
Designed by Professor Alex Linley and his team at Cappfinity in the UK, Strengths Profile is used by leading organisations including Schneider Electric, Salesforce, QBE and GE Health.
The Strengths Profile tool is unique and distinct from traditional one-dimensional strengths tests, assessing 60 strengths across three dimensions of energy, performance and use. This pinpoints people’s results in four quadrants:
- Realised Strengths are the things they find energising, perform well, and use often
- Learned Behaviours are the things they have learned to do well, yet do not energise them
- Weaknesses are the things they find it hard to do well and find draining
- Unrealised Strengths are the things they find energising and perform well, yet don’t use so often
This model provides a positive platform for development, enabling people to design strategies to maximise growth potential, minimise weaknesses and optimise performance and wellbeing.
Starting your journey towards being a strengths-based organisation is easy to do. Langley Group can help you implement the strengths-based approach by working with you to develop workshops to introduce strengths to your people. This would include assessments and debriefs for those attending.
Reports available include individual, team and manager reports. It can also be cost effective to have someone in your organisation become accredited in debriefing the Strengths Profile tool, giving you the opportunity to continue to use the tool with new hires or other teams.
Once you become accredited as a Strengths Profile Practitioner, you will be able to understand, interpret and debrief the Strengths Expert Profile, which reveals individuals’ realised and unrealised strengths, learned behaviours (or de-energising) and weaknesses.
You will also learn to facilitate positive, strengths-based coaching and development conversations.
The accreditation is ideal for:
- HR and L&D professionals
- Business and team leaders
- Recruitment specialists
- Trainers and facilitators
This intensive training programme includes small group practice, personal feedback and mentoring, as well as post-workshop assessments to help you confidently and successfully integrate the Strengths Profile model and tool into your coaching practice.
The Strengths Profile Certification is accredited by the International Coach Federation for 18.5 CCEUs (9.5 Core Competencies, 9 Resource Development) toward ongoing professional development for ICF ACC-level coaches and higher.
You can complete the course by face-to-face or as virtual live classrooms. Please contact us to learn more!
