How to adopt a Strengths Culture
Strengthen your experts
By building a group of strengths champions in your organisation, you will be enabling experts to be on hand to build a positive culture
Strengthen your people
When everyone in your organisation knows what their strengths are, transformation can happen
Strengthen your teams
By sharing individual strengths, team members can learn what motivates their colleagues and what they may need support on
Strengthen your managers
After individuals and teams know their strengths, the final step is to ensure managers are enabled to sustain the engagement
1. Strengthen your experts
By building a group of strengths champions in your organisation, you will be enabling experts to be on hand to build a positive culture. It’s important that everyone in your business gets to play to their strengths, not just your top talent, so we’ve built the tools to make this an easy and positive experience for your experts. They will have access to resources to embed strengths in your business through coaching and development of your people, teams, and managers.
2. Strengthen your people
When everyone in your organisation knows what their strengths are, transformation can happen. The language changes as conversation shifts to what your people love to do and they are keen to share their success stories and strengths journeys. Our Profiles are holistic and reveal every person’s uniqueness by uncovering their realised and unrealised strengths, learned behaviours and weaknesses. With your experts, help your people to maximise their results by debriefing their Profile or bring them together in self-awareness workshops.
3. Strengthen your teams
There are two steps to strengthening teams. Firstly, team members need to share their individual strengths with each other. They need to know what motivates their colleagues and what they may need support on. Next, comes understanding what the collective realised and unrealised strengths, learned behaviours and weaknesses of the team are. This will help your experts increase performance and unlock talent by understanding more about the team’s successes, future potential, and areas to address.
4. Strengthen your managers
After individuals and teams know their strengths, the final step is to ensure managers are enabled to sustain the engagement. It’s important they keep up the great work carried out by having informal and formal conversations about strengths and consider how they might delegate and set goals and tasks on this knowledge. Our Team Manager Profile is easy to use and gets to the point, giving direct advice on developing and applying each team member’s top 2 realised and unrealised strengths. Our Team Manager Toolkit gives templates and advice on being a strengths-based manager.

How knowing our Strengths helped us
We’ve been able to use the Profile and strengths cards to underpin development initiatives, coaching, strategic planning, and many meetings across different business areas, levels of leaders, and teams. The results have been outstanding and have created a real buzz. I am continually excited by the strengths conversations I still continue to have with leaders, teams, and small business owners at Aviva.
