Did you know there is a 1 in 275,000 chance that someone else has the same top 5 strengths as you? This makes you unique. This makes what you do and how you do it special. This means you have a combination of talents that make you stand out from the crowd. When you know where your talents lie, you can develop them into Strengths. When you operate from a place of Strength, you super-charge your results. You thrive, instead of just survive, in times of uncertainty.
The old way was to focus on where we were weak and then try and fix our faults. As Marcus Buckingham, one of the founders of the Strengths movement says:
"You cannot remediate your way to excellence".
People who know and use their Strengths are...
More Likely to be Engaged at Work
In a recent Gallup survey, only 15% of employees worldwide reported being engaged at work. Growing research has proven that engaged employees produce better outcomes, so engagement matters!
As Likely to report an Excellent Quality of Life
While subjective, when people perceive the quality of their lives as excellent, this has a massive impact on our work environments.
Productive people mean more sales, higher return on investement and significantly less safety incidents and absenteeism.
