StrengthsFinder is a tool which is fantastic for helping individuals and teams to understand, collaborate and achieve success through their talents and strengths. It starts with a short assessment which was created under the leadership of educational psychologist Don Clifton and has now benefitted from 70 years of development and improvement. He wanted to identify the skills of the best of the best of the best, and to capitalise on them. So far almost 21 million people worldwide have taken the assessment and begun working on their unique strengths.
StrengthsFinder helps identify the areas where individuals and teams have the greatest potential for building strength. It measures recurring patterns of thought, feeling, and behaviour. Knowing this information is a starting point; a Sandstone Coach is then able to help individuals, teams and organisations leverage their talents, and turn them into sustainable strengths.
For our clients, the best way to leverage this tool would be to begin with the senior leadership and future leadership teams. Collaboration is the fastest way to success and by using StrengthsFinder in a team and 1:1 setting, all levels of your organisation will be empowered to become the most effective versions of themselves in both their professional and personal lives.
