Focus on Staff Strengths
According to Gallup, 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 percent were engaged when their supervisor focused on strengths, as opposed to only 30 percent 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, True Colors, Insights Discovery, or others, to help identify strengths and to guide your team to better collaboration.
