1.1.1. Strengths

Strengths can refer to your:

  • behaviour
  • experience
  • skills
  • way of thinking.

Performing well means you need to keep learning and developing your skills. Everyone wants to go to work and feel like they are being the best version of themselves, and you will get the best results if you do a job that plays to your strengths.

Word check!

A strength is a task or action you can do well. 

Potential is having the ability to develop into something more in the future.

Learning means acquiring new knowledge or skills.

It can be difficult to identify what our strengths are, as they are often things we find easy or enjoy doing. It may only be when someone asks you to explain how you do what you do, that you notice it is one of your strengths.

Here’s an example…

Do more of what you love and have a strong week.
