All companies want to succeed. But many companies attempt to achieve success by following the conventional approach that you must find what is wrong with people and then try to fix it. Unfortunately, this method does not inspire and motivate employees to do their best and stay engaged. In a strengths-based organization, managers focus on what is right so the people on their team have the opportunity to do what they do best every day. As a result, these employees look forward to going to work, achieve more while they are there and stay with their company longer. The strengths approach is woven throughout the systems and processes of the company and reflected in its vision, mission and values.
Gallup’s research on strengths over four decades shows that when employees refine their natural talents to develop them into strengths and are given the opportunity to do what they do best every day, the effect on individual, team and organizational performance is powerful. They are more productive, perform better and are more engaged. Specifically, people who use their strengths every day are six times more likely to be engaged on the job. Teams that focus on their strengths are 12.5% more productive. Gallup’s research shows that people have greater success when they have the opportunity to lead with their strengths and focus on what they do best. The result is employees who learn faster, work harder, advance further and stay longer. The challenge, however, is that most people aren’t able to accurately identify their own strengths and therefore can’t intentionally use them.
We all need help to know what our talents are and to understand how to maximize them. To inspire employees worldwide to harness the power of strengths, Gallup created the CliftonStrengths Assessment, a 30-minute online assessment that measures a person’s natural talents within 34 themes and then identifies their top themes to help people discover and achieve greater performance and outcomes. The assessment results give people a way to discuss and develop their unique combination of skills, talents, and knowledge — also known as strengths. By revealing the ways in which each unique individual most naturally thinks, feels, and behaves, the assessment can help people identify and build on the areas in which they have the most potential to grow and succeed. After completing the CliftonStrengths Assessment, each employee receives a report with descriptions of each of his or her top talent themes as well as suggestions for maximizing and developing those talents. The assessment results together with insights from a coach give your employees valuable information into how they can cultivate their talents into strengths.
The Clifton Strengths Assessment 34 Themes can be grouped into Four Domains of Leadership. All themes are neutral and can be used effectively in various roles to drive performance:
FOUR DOMAINS OF LEADERSHIP
However, simply taking the assessment is not enough. These ideas and strengths principles need to be integrated and developed into the team and company to help employees step into their next level of leadership and development.
Talent X Investment = Strength
(Talent = a natural way of thinking, feeling, or behaving)
(Investment = the time spent practicing and developing skills and building a knowledge base)
(Strength = the ability to consistently provide near-perfect performance)
