Strengths Discovery & Application - We empower people to use their strengths everyday
Introduction to Strengths Discovery & Application
Positive Psychology has revealed that knowing and playing to our strengths has a powerful positive impact on both individual and team performance and wellbeing.
BUT WHAT EXACTLY ARE STRENGTHS?
Strengths are things we find energising, enjoyable and easy to use. Everyone has unique and enduring strengths, not just ‘top talent’. However, discovering strengths is not enough to increase performance and wellbeing – we need to know how to use them.
Strengths develop from birth until around the age of 17. After this age it is much harder to develop new strengths (although it is possible). Because they are so easy to use, it is common for people to overplay their strengths, using them too much and having a negative impact on other people and situations. Therefore, it is important that we learn how to manage our strengths skilfully.
