Focus on Staff Strengths

Focusing on an individual team member’s strengths is more effective than focusing on improving weaknesses. One study showed a stark difference in engagement scores: 67% were engaged when their supervisor focused on strengths, as opposed to only 30% being engaged when their supervisor focused on weaknesses.  

Staff better understand their responsibilities, produce higher quality work and have a higher retention rate in strengths-based cultures. Consider tools and resources for your team, such as StrengthsFinder 2.0 or other assessments.
