At Our Best: Investing in the Strengths of your Team

There is no such thing as a 'well-rounded individual' - there are only well-rounded teams. A strengths-based approach comes from a place of abundance, where we recognize and invest in each person's unique strengths to ensure they can flourish and give their best to the project. By becoming more observant of the situations where your teammates are thriving and 'in flow', you can start to notice the kind of tasks and projects they are best suited to. And by doing a strengths diagnostic as a team, you can start to see where the strengths of the team are as a whole, as well as any risks or gaps.

takeaways
Understanding Strengths & Skills

Skills can be learned, but strengths are the unique combination of aptitudes and qualities that come naturally to us.  Strength = Talent + Investment, so we need to both identify our strengths, and put time and effort into cultivating them to ensure we are 'At Our Best.'

takeaways
Focus on Strengths over Weaknesses

According to positive psychologists, harnessing our own strengths and those of our team, rather than focusing on 'areas for development' or weaknesses, are a sure-fire way to create more engagement, and more powerful results.

takeaways
At My Best: Adopting Strengths-based Leadership

By reflecting on times we've been 'at our best' or 'in flow', we can deduce some of our core strengths that we bring to every situation. Peer-coaching is a strong method for drawing out these strengths, helping us own our unique talents and abilities, and ensuring we do not fall into too much arrogance or modesty. We can now ask ourselves - how can I harness these Strengths in service of a team? What kind of manager/leader do these allow me to be? Once we have identified our 5-6 core strengths, using At My Best or Gallup Strengthsfinder, we can consider how to invest in developing them further.

takeaways
Develop Self Awareness, Self Regulation and Self Generation

Every strength has a shadow side as well as the light. And we usually default heavily to our strengths when under pressure, meaning those same brilliant assets sometimes manifest as weaknesses. If one of your strengths is being positive, if you're too bright and happy during a crisis as a coping mechanism for yourself, others might think you're being naive, and not grasping the gravity of the situation. By recognising how to moderate our strengths, we can move from self-awareness to self-regulation (adapting our behaviour) and self-generation (sustaining the factors which enable us to thrive).
