Wanting to take your team from good to great?
Research shows that managers who create environments where their staff can make the most of their innate talents on a daily basis and apply strengths-based management practices have:
- more productive work units
- less staff turnover
- increased employee engagement, and
- greater profitability.
Significant gains can be observed by individuals and teams that invest in their own strength’s development and feedback. Managers who know and intentionally apply their own strengths, recognise that everyone is wired differently. Managers who genuinely seek to discover the unique strengths of each team member, and consistently leads, manages and develops them, will optimise the individual and the collective potential of their team and spur them on to greater performance.
Team members who know and understand their own strengths find it is easier to engage in facilitated conversations and appreciate the strengths and the perspectives that their colleagues have as they have a common language to describe their talents.
Successful teams seek ways on how they can leverage their strengths by identifying complementary talents, collaborate rather than compete, have more positive than negative interactions with co-workers, treat customers better, and tell their friends they enjoy their work and their workplace – they have a sense of belonging and greater commitment.
Strengths-based development programmes are based on the principles of Positive Psychology – the scientific study of optimal human functioning. Successful strength-based development results in positive outcomes when this is supported with strengths-based management practices.
