Let’s face it, focusing on developing people’s strengths at work makes a lot of sense. After all these are their neurological superpowers and it’s what you’re paying them good money to access! But after having your people complete a strengths assessment survey, we find many teams are left wondering ‘what comes next?’
So, imagine what it would feel like if you have a toolbox of evidence-based, practical, done-for-you tools to take the guesswork out of how you recruit, manage, team and develop people’s strengths? How much value could you add to your workplace if you could:
If this is the kind of difference you want to be making in your workplace, then our Complete Strengths Leader’s Toolbox will give you everything you need at the click of a button.
Hi, I’m Michelle McQuaid.
When I first stumbled into the research on taking a strengths-focused approach to people’s work, I felt like it was love at first sight. As a leader, I had often struggled to bring out the best in my team, no matter how diligently and firmly I pointed out their weaknesses and explained what they needed to fix.
I knew from experience that most of us come away from conversations like this feeling frustrated and fed up that our bosses don’t appreciate our hard work – but I didn’t know any other way to give feedback as a manager. When I discovered the benefits of working with the ways people’s brain are wired to perform at their best, I set off to complete my Masters in Applied Positive Psychology, so I could learn everything possible about taking a strengths approach in workplaces.
But as it turns out, despite all the research and tools that my studies gave me, implementing a strengths-based approach wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be.
I didn’t understand that it wasn’t enough to just have people complete a strengths assessment tool and give them permission to do more of what they did best. I didn’t understand that without the resources and practical guidance I needed to recruit people for their strengths, have strength development conversations with my team members, map my team’s strengths, and give on-the-spot strengths feedback that an assessment tool only takes you a small step forward.
After my studies, it has taken me a decade of working with the world’s leading researchers and organizations from around the globe to understand how to truly be an effective strengths-focused leader. And with the help of my amazing colleagues – HR Leader Extraordinaire Elise Morris and Strategy & Facilitation Queen Rebecca Melville – we’ve packaged all our learnings together in this done-for-you, steal-it-with-pride ‘The Complete Strengths Leader’s Toolbox.’
The Complete Strengths Leader’s Toolbox is a collection of step-by-step guides and done-for-you playsheets, templates, and examples that you can steal with pride and use to help your team and your organization truly become strengths-focused.
Based on the latest evidence-based approaches to improve people’s levels of confidence, engagement, performance and wellbeing, this practical, easy-to-implement toolbox has been created for HR professionals, team leaders, consultants and coaches to help bring out the best in people in workplaces.
Designed for use with the VIA Survey, Gallup StrengthsFinder or any other strengths assessment tools, the toolbox provides everything you need to teach your people about the benefits of intelligently developing their strengths, to helping leaders and teams fuse their strengths to improve bottom-line business outcomes and aligning people management processes to be more strengths-focused to help you lower turnover and attract the best talent.
