Are you seeking to better understand your team’s underlying strengths? Or hoping to increase awareness around individual differences in a positive or strengths-based way?
If so, a facilitated strengths-based workshop might be the positive experience you are looking for.
Strengths are defined as those things we “perform well at, find energising, and do frequently”.
They are said to represent the way our brains are ‘wired’ to perform at its best, and the things we are intrinsically motivated to do.
When using their unique strengths, employees often feel more energised, satisfied and alive. They feel as though they are doing things that ‘light them up’, rather than feel drained or overwhelmed.
The answer is pretty simple. A growing body of research in the field of positive psychology suggests that providing employees with opportunities to regularly use and develop their strengths results in a number of benefits – for both individuals and the business.
These include higher levels of engagement, motivation, productivity, and well-being, and lower levels of turnover and stress.
In fact, more and more organisations are recognising the value associated with helping people to do more of those things they are already good at and enjoy – rather than continually focusing on addressing or developing areas of ‘weakness’.
Indeed, it is commonly stated that employees are the greatest asset of any organisation. However, this is only true of those who are fully engaged and productive, and effectively utilising ALL of their talents and skills.
Research reflects a number of significant benefits that can be gained from individuals identifying, understanding and regularly using their key strengths. Examples are:
