A 2017 Gallup research shows that only 1 in 3 employees strongly agree that they have the opportunity to do what they do best every day. A multitude of research evidence and business impact results support the importance of strengths-based performance coaching. Yet, only 31% of employees strongly agree that their manager focuses on their strengths or positive characteristics.
Leaders across every level of the organisation can contribute positively to organisational results by unlocking talent and potential through the identification of strengths. By focusing on performance development from the lens of an individual’s strengths, managers can help employees think about how they can apply their strengths to achieve business success.
Brain science reveals that we do not learn and grow the most in our areas of weakness. In fact, the opposite is true: we grow the newest synapses in those areas of our brain where we have the most pre-existing synapses. Our strengths, therefore, are our true areas of opportunity for growth. (Marcus Buckingham)
This session enables leaders to:
- Understand the business case for focusing on strengths
- Gain skills in identifying strengths and develop a strengths-based vocabulary
- Understand their own strengths and opportunities for development and growth
- Using an individual’s strengths as a springboard for creating a future-oriented development plan
- Practical tips and strategies for having a strengths-based development conversation
