Strengths are an important feature of the Positive Psychology field. There's a key difference between a Strength and a competence. Using a Strength – something that you're not only good at but that also energises you – gives you more satisfaction, challenge and joy from an experience*. And given we spend most of our time at work, we can find huge benefits in applying our strengths to our roles.
Following an online strengths assessment (Realise2 from CAPP), this workshop helps individuals explore what their strengths mean, the extent to which they're using them already, and practical ways in which they can use them more at work (and at home). With an intact team, they also get to know each others' strengths – giving them ideas for where projects and responsibilities could go to get the best performances, as well as a common language.
Participants leave with increased self-awareness, as well as a communication plan for 'how to get the best from me'. This understanding allows people to know who they truly are, and begin to cultivate who they truly could be.
