Strengths for Business

High Performing Teams Have One Thing in Common, They All Play to Their Strengths

We work with individuals and teams in businesses, helping them to deliver better business results. Individuals who utilise their strengths are more motivated, more creative and more productive.  Teams who understand and harness their strengths quickly outperform those that don’t, both in terms of productivity and profitability.

Are you tapping into the unrealised strengths within your team?

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 ones represent the untapped potential within your business.  We give you a proven way to tap into this hidden reservoir of underutilised capabilities.

Can a strengths-based approach actually increase productivity and profitability?

Absolutely!  This whole approach wasn’t dreamed up by a psychologist in an ivory tower somewhere.  It is the product of extensive worldwide research into top performing teams to uncover what makes them perform at their best.

Our work utilises the Realise2 Team Strengths Assessment Tool.

  • This online tool has been used by more than 70,000 people across the globe
  • Is used by blue chip companies, local authorities and academic institutions

 How does it work?

Stage 1- Discovery

Team members
Initially each team member will complete the online Realise2 assessment tool.  We will then conduct a 1:1 debrief with each team member to help them understand and interpret their individual results.

Whole team
We produce a team report and conduct a full team debrief to explore what the results mean for the team.   The team report includes:

  • The frequently realised strengths, learned behaviours, weaknesses and unrealised strengths that exist across a team
  • A SWOT Analysis identifying the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats for your team as a whole
  • A Team Profile Summary allowing you to identify all team members at a glance according to their realised strengths, learned behaviours, weaknesses and unrealised strengths

Stage 2 – Direction

Knowing the current strengths profile is only the first step and many teams understand the value of using an external strengths practitioner to help them.

To unlock the potential for growth within your team it is vital that they understand their shared goals before exploring how they can use their realised and unrealised strengths to achieve them.

Typically this would take the form of a four-hour facilitated team workshop….

Stage 3 – Development

We would be delighted to come back and work with your team, to ensure that they and you get the most out of this new way of working.   It does take a little getting used to, and there may be a temptation to slip back into old habits.  Our regular team tune-ups will keep you on track.
