Did you know the very basis of Positive Psychology and Performing Psychology tools that specifically help high achievers, is discovering, then focusing on your natural strengths?
It is the over-riding belief of most organizations and their managers that the talents and skills of a company and its employees should be built up from their weaknesses. The underlying premise is that weaknesses should be strengthened, leaving the stronger aspects to look after themselves.
Gallup research proves that individuals, teams and entire organizations succeed when they play to their strengths. Therefore professionals will perform better and achieve more by concentrating on and utilizing his or her strengths.
Too often, ambitious and driven women, in particular, fall into the trap of focusing on what’s holding them back in their careers rather than celebrating their strengths and moving forward.
There’s rarely enough recognition of enabling qualities, but rather a strong drive to fix perceived faults instead.
Be honest, do you know definitively what your personal strengths are, and how you use them to succeed?
Perhaps you constantly berate yourself for feeling disorganized or have a hard time arriving early to meetings. Whatever it is, there’s likely a few of your personal ‘weaknesses’ lingering in the back of your mind, that you can hold against yourself.
It’s easy to pinpoint and pick apart our ‘faults’, but how often do you stop to think about your aptitude for strategy, innate ability to learn on the job, or the empathy that enables clients to listen and trust you? Do you truly know what your strengths are?
Be honest, how frequently do you focus on your strengths instead of your weaknesses?
Do you feel as though your productivity would skyrocket, if only you could improve your “faults” in some way?
Does the idea of letting go of everything holding you back, and yet driving your success even further, sound like a pipe dream?
If so, the Signature Strengths Workshop was designed specifically for you. Learn to bypass those obstacles and hone your focus in on what really matters.
