I love my job. One of the main things that I do is work with individuals and teams to help them to understand and utilise their strengths and work more effectively together. It is so rewarding helping people really understand how their core strengths can enable them to be more effective and fulfilled in their work. I also love seeing those “lightbulb” moments when team members come to understand each other in a deeper way.
I can help you to “play to your strengths”
I use the strengthsfinder© online survey which is a very accurate way of understanding your top strengths. Once you have your results we can chat in person or through skype about how your strengths can help you to be more effective, what things you might need to watch out for and how your strengths impact your leadership style.
I can help your team to “play to their strengths”
In my consulting work I take teams from the corporate and not for profit sectors through a team building exercise which focuses on strengths. What I have found works really well is this 4 step process in which:
1 Each team member does the online survey to highlight their top strengths.
2 I take each person through a feedback/coaching session on site or through skype.
3 I prepare a team report which also looks at the combined strengths of the team and creates a team profile and meet with the team leader to overview the results.
4 Then, in a team workshop, we discuss each person’s strengths, encourage them and look at ways that the team can function more effectively together.
A growing number of organisations around the world are seeing the benefits of a strengths based approach to team building. If you are interested in finding out more about how I can help your team to grow, please do not hesitate to contact me.
