Significant Seven Strengths
As part of our new coaching service we work with the Strengthscope program. This is a strengths-based assessment tool that seeks to identify the core capabilities of employees and ensure each individual is utilising them in the correct manner and/or in the correct role, to develop both their personal performance levels and the collective output of the organisation.
Our coaches all took part in our Strengths Discovery exercise, and found out what their seven most significant strengths are…
- Critical thinking
“Unfortunately as with the others no real surprises…. I think it’s a good reflection of me and my behaviours, especially the decision making e.g. critical thinking, creativity and decisiveness…. My optimism strength has very much been challenged by the situation of the last 12 months and I do think I have used this a lot to help others who don’t naturally feel optimistic about the future, however uncertain that future that may be!”
- Relationship building
“For me I’m not sure any were a surprise – the surprises come when you look further down to those that aren’t in my top 7. All I would say is the my Significant 7 are well aligned to my ‘new’ chosen professions of Recruitment and Coaching.”
- Developing others
- Strategic mindedness
“The one that I go into overdrive on most often is enthusiasm – especially when it’s combined with creativity & strategy. But I can get so carried away with enthusiastically providing white boards, coloured pens and mind maps and being exceptionally creative – that I might not always spot that others need a slower pace, or a different style of engagement. Then I’m at risk of being frustrated and so are they. Not ideal.”
- Developing others
- Results focus
“To be honest, none were a surprise, but it’s a great exercise to understand myself more not just professionally but personally too! I am using this to manage and understand my stress levels which really works. One thing I notice is as I am Results Focussed – I get stressed when I don’t have good people lined up for interviews quickly and it can play on my mind sometimes – I need to step back and just keep going, and also focus on ways to work smarter/improve our process to speed things up where possible and let go of the pressure…”
We work with clients to help them understand their key competencies, optimise these and use them to achieve their career goals and objectives.
