Strengths at Work

Disclaimer: This is not a paid product endorsement. I simply use this approach in my work and want to share.

You can tell by my blog title that I’m strengths obsessed. I have a deep belief in the potential of every individual.  People are happiest and most productive when they can do the things that energize them (strengths) vs. the things that drain them (weaknesses).  My love of coaching and helping others find their bliss is evident in the way I approach my work and in the way I lead my teams.

So I have to share with you the work of one of the best companies leading this movement: TMBC (The Marcus Buckingham Company). It’s one thing to believe in the potential of people, it’s another thing entirely to use evidence based research to back up the claim that concentrating on strengths leads to performance and engagement. Well, TMBC, does exactly that. They can prove that operating out of ones strengths at least once a day has a direct positive impact on both productivity and engagement.
