So how can each of us start using our strengths every day rather than once a week? Think of the three “A’s” of awareness, action, and accountability.
- Make a personal strength chart.
When participating in an activity, write down the feeling of doing this activity – does it make you feel strong or weak? Through this, it will become easier to start to discover the strengths that lie within you.
- Dig deeper and work with a Strengths expert.
They can use assessments and coaching to help you identify your Strengths and, more importantly, bring them alive so that they become actions focused on your personal goals.
- Develop your strengths.
Once identified, it’s essential to nourish and cultivate this potential. Focus on activities that will grow your specific talents. For example, if a strength is communication and you enjoy public speaking, take additional training courses and workshops that will increase your storytelling impact. You will feel strong and passionate, and the measurable growth and your greater effect can be limitless.
- Strengthen your team.
The ability for teams to work in sync and rely on each other is crucial in most circumstances. With the identification of personal strengths, each person can depend on the Strengths of each other better. This also helps improve trust and communication and thus increases collaboration, allowing performance to expand — all because strengths have been identified and maximized.
Bottom line – People and teams excel where they are strong.
The reasons only 17% of us use our Strengths each day are many, including the belief in myths and a deeper understanding of our Strengths.
If you, your team, and your organization are ready to discover your Strengths and put them to work, we offer a free consulting session. Companies hire Churchill to help them understand how they can most effectively accelerate their performance and realize the potential of the people on their teams. They choose Churchill over other leadership development companies because all of our expert coaches have extensive corporate and business experience. This means we understand their needs and provide sustainable solutions that work.
