The strengths-based approach offers an empirically validated framework and methodology, with a wide and varied range of psychometric assessment tools.
There is extensive research about the benefits of focusing on strengths. In particular, studies demonstrated that people using their strengths are happier and more fulfilled, feel as if they have more energy available to them and have stronger self-belief to achieve their goals.*
Research also established the link between working with strengths and higher levels of engagement, self-esteem and resilience.**
In addition to the individual benefits, specific benefits of using strengths within organisations have also been demonstrated, such as increased productivity and engagement, enhanced creativity, effective talent management, improved relationships and better communication.***
Working with a strengths' approach gives our clients a sense of alignment and authenticity, empowering them to be effective leaders aware of their natural resources.
