Why manage using Strengths?
When you manage using a strengths-based approach, your people will enjoy what they do, as well as do it well. This benefits the individual, you as a manager, and the organisation as a whole.
By understanding what motivates your people and why, they will be happier, more confident, and able to achieve their tasks successfully
By doing more of what they love to do, your team will be more engaged, perform better, and be more productive
When your people complement each others strengths, you are able to delegate effectively and improve communication and working relationships
How do I use Strengths?
Understand my team
Reveal your team’s unique strengths and weaknesses through their individual Introductory Profiles to understand what motivates and de-energises them. Next, the Manager Profile collates all team members’ top strengths into one report and gives you direct advice for managing and developing each member.
Develop my team
The Manager Toolkit enables you to get the best out of your individual team members everyday through approaches, tips, and conversations. Used in conjunction with your Manager Profile, you will be able to have focused one-to-one conversations with each team member to set and achieve the right goals.
Transform my team
Take your strengths journey to the next level and become an expert in using strengths to coach your team, delegate tasks, and have meaningful conversations, enabling them to succeed and flourish in their roles.
1. Understand my team
Invite each member of your team to complete an Introductory Strengths Profile. Everyone will receive a unique report revealing up to 7 realised and unrealised strengths, 4 learned behaviours and 3 weaknesses. The descriptions and advice will help you and your people understand and develop their strengths.
Once all team members have their individual Profiles, you can create a Manager Profile. It features all the team in one report, and focuses on giving you advice for managing and developing each team member’s top two realised and unrealised strengths, as well as some 'watch out for' tips.
2. Develop my team
An interactive Toolkit that enables managers to apply strengths every day in their team through approaches, tips, and conversations. We help you understand your own strengths as a manager too.
3. Transform my team
Complete the online Strengths Profile Accreditation Programme to give you the theory and best practice to get the most from your manager conversations. It will give you the confidence, with plenty of practice, to coach with the 60 strengths and the 4 categories. The final session is a live coaching session.
With over 20 suggested strengths conversations that could be used in a single or group setting, the Coaching Toolkit will help you to apply strengths with your team members in any situation.

How Strengths have helped my coachees
As someone who manages a team of coaches and trains coaches globally, the Strengths Profile is an exceptional value tool. The Profile is highly insightful for your coachee, helping them identify how their strengths play out every day, as well as identifying ways strengths can assist with weaknesses or activities they do not enjoy at work. I love that it is not a tool that puts people in a box, but it is dynamic and helps people show up as the best version of themselves.
