At work, do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day?

Did you know that your long term success comes, not from focusing on your weaknesses, but from developing and realising your strengths?

The Flourishing Business works with both individuals and teams in business and education, helping them to Discover, Direct and Develop their strengths.

What are strengths?

In a nutshell, your strengths are the things you are skilled at and which energize you.  Contrast that with weaknesses which, by our definition, are those things which you are not good at, and which drain you.

There are actually two types of strength.  Realised strengths and unrealised strengths.  Realised strengths are the ones that an individual is already utilising effectively.  Unrealised strengths represent the vast untapped potential within your business.

Imagine how much more motivated and productive you and your teams could be if you could spend more time playing to your strengths.

A proven methodology that delivers real results

This isn’t some happy-clappy, mumbo-jumbo.  It is cutting-edge science and management theory, developed by studying teams and individuals that consistently deliver outstanding results.  When a strengths approach is adopted by individuals, and organisations, they flourish.

How do I know what my strengths are and if I am using them?

To get an accurate picture of your current behaviours we use the Realise2 strengths assessment and development tool. It’s a sophisticated online questionnaire that looks at 60 different strengths and produces a detailed report which identifies your realised strengths, learned behaviours, weaknesses and unrealised strengths.  Of course, an awareness of your strengths profile on its own won’t get you very far.  It’s only the first step on the journey to higher performance.  The magic actually happens when we tap into that hidden reservoir of unrealised strengths.
