Harnessing Strengths in the Workplace

If only you had a team of mind-readers who could build trust, create team spirit and demonstrate superior communication!

If you’ve ever asked yourself:

  • How can I kick-start my motivation and make work easier and more enjoyable?
  • How can I rejuvenate my team members and help them play to their strengths?
  • How might playing to my own strengths help me to be invigorate and effective?

This course is for you.

In this session, we’ll be using the Emergenetics® profiling system to learn more about our strengths and how to adopt a strengths-based approach in the development of yourself and your teams.

Research shows that increasing your teams’ self-awareness specifically around their own strengths can significantly increase their engagement with each other and their effectiveness with clients.

Adopting a strength-based philosophy and practice gives people managers and team leaders a means of understanding and energising their teams, increasing empathy and optimising performance.

This session will enable people managers and team leaders first to explore and apply the thinking for themselves before going on to consider how they might adopt a strengths-based approach in the development of their teams – individually and collectively.

Training outcomes...

  • Ability to frame tasks to your own and others’ cognitive and behavioural strengths
  • Demonstrate appreciation of all team members & a reduction in team conflict
