Why do we constantly try to judge a fish on its ability to fly – rather than its ability to swim?
In other words, why are we focusing on people’s weakness, rather than their strengths?
Too often we focus on a weaknesses when we should focus on the employee's unique strengths as part of a team and leverage off those combined team member strengths to achieve.
It isn’t until we know what makes us talented and unique that we know how to perform better in our job and to be better co-workers.
A focus on employee strengths and building on them to achieve outcomes will lead to the greatest successes for our business.
People who know and use their strengths are:
- 6 times as likely to be engaged at work
- 7.8% more productive in their role
- 3 times as likely to have an excellent quality of life
- 6 times as likely to do what they do best every day.
Research proves that a focus on individual strengths is essential to creating an exceptional culture… which is why 90 percent of the Fortune 500 have already adopted the strengths-based approach.
