“You cannot be anything you want to be – but you can be a lot more of who you already are”
Lead Facilitator Richard Brown outlines a new development programme for Spring 2010:
“Many organisations spend millions on training budgets to focus on staff weaknesses, whereas working on staff strengths is demonstrably more effective in many ways.
If your manager primarily focuses on your weaknesses, the chances of you being actively disengaged at work are 22%. If your manager primarily focuses on your strengths, the chances fall dramatically to only 1%.
Team members that spend more time working to their strengths are healthier, more productive, more engaged, take less time off and better ambassadors of the company than staff who are not able to use their strengths.
StrengthsFinder 2.0 is an assessment tool that gives you, your staff and your managers the ability to understand people’s strengths, understand why staff excel in certain areas and begin to work towards having the opportunity to “do what you do best every day.”
