Strengths-Based Leadership – Career Guidance for Professionals, and Teams
Strengths-Based Leadership – Career Guidance for Professionals, and Teams, Why’s Important?
Strengths-Based Approach is a new concept of self-fulfillment through the convergence of natural talents and personal passions. It’s about boosting your authentic you. It’ll give you better vision of what is your next step in career or where you might direct your career or project. It’s also very helpful if your goal is to enhance your and your team’s natural leadership and start to use natural strengths of everybody in your team.
Every professional knows how challenging is to gain direction, make good decisions, and build self-confidence. Fortunately, in order to successfully meet these challenges you can use your own natural talents already existing within everyone of us. Certain magic happens when we understand how we’re different and how our distinctive traits and abilities create our personality.
As professional, after strengths-based coaching session, you should train yourself to look for strengths behaviours, align character strengths with activities you’re doing. Let this insight you’ve got, become your faithful friend that nudges you, at every point in your journey, to unlock your potential. Don’t interpret little as meaning insignificant or too small to be relevant. Be aware, explore, apply strengths spotting in others too. During any observation, or conversation, label the strength you notice, describe how you see the person’s strengths being expressed. You can see strengths in every conversation, in each of your relationships, (family, friends, co-workers, children, neighbours and new people you encounter).
Unfortunately, most of our strengths stay our untapped assets as we have little sense of our talents and strengths. Instead, our surrounding (parents, teachers, managers) focus on repairing our weaknesses. We, spend our lives trying to repair our weaknesses, leaving our greatest abilities & strengths neglected. It’s a commonplace to overlook them. It’s easy to take your strengths for granted.
But, the reality is that we use the strengths in many small ways in our life. We use our strengths when, for example, we think about new way of driving home that avoid bad traffic or in a way we connect with others. Some people are real people’s person, other aren’t. You can have huge amount of creativity in some domains, and little amount in others.
Strengths Profile makes a massive difference to how people feel about their work and what they have to offer. It can add a whole new dimension in your life and life of others, and it can build and amount to substantial benefits for yourself, for others, and for larger community. Every professional and every organisation could have this assessments done; This world would have been totally different place if all employees could be in the right job, playing to their strengths and performing excellently.

What are the benefits of Strengths-Based Career Consulting Services for professionals and teams?
Research shows that when people are aware of and using their strengths they are better able and more likely to achieve their goals and overcome challenges! Horward Gartner, famous for his theory of multiple intelligence, once said the science of human character strengths is the most important development in psychology over the past half century. Furthermore, sufficient scientific research has accumulated so it cannot be denied that recognising, appreciating, and harnessing strengths in yourself and other people, is one of the most efficient and effective paths to a life of success and fulfillment.
Strengths-Based Consulting Session
Strengths-Based Career Consulting Session is an entryway to help you discover your greatest talents and develop strengths, gain access to possible actions, or apply your talents for success in other settings, and projects.
You will be guided in: how to find out and confirmed what your talents and passions are, what to do if you love doing something you aren’t naturally good at, how to compensate it with your strengths. The same will be for the things you’re good at but you don’t enjoy doing them. It is also possible to make a plan how to approach and start to make a living in accordance with your naturals talents and passions. It will be possible to make from your authenticity an added value.
When you use the strengths, everything you do, it feels effortless and natural, energising and uplifting you. You feel happy and in balance, ready to take on more, and find new ways to express yourself. Your untapped strengths that are dormant, are like seeds, each of different colour and size. Some grow fast, other grow slowly. Some can be very obvious to you and to others, while others are overshadowed by your more dominant strengths.
Talents are the sum of what we do naturally the best.
Possible Types of Assessment

Strengths -Based Assessment Process Description
I have a series of methodologies/online tools to suit different contexts and challenges.
I work most of the time with Strengths Profile but use other existing online Strengths-Based Assessments that reveal your themes of talents.
I organise 1-to-1 consulting sessions for professionals. I also do small-group and team workshops, where the synergy of different people and their unique point of view offer measurable added value and is very useful to get larger perspective of your strengths profile.
A whole process is composed of three to four in-person or video meetings.
Each meeting is one hour long and includes review of test results from online assessments and my personal, written and oral feedback.
Getting to know a person, his/her needs, online assessments prescription (what is the best for him/her to chose as assessment).
Session where we analyse together the results of online chosen strengths-based approach assessments.
We chose one project or goal and we work together to see how individual’s strengths can dial up to his /her success. After that, we chose some strategies how to compensate weaknesses. I help you find one or more things that can be motivating for you to hold on to and willingly participate in these strategies.
These strengths that we’ll discover, can be applied at home, at work, and out in the world.
In this phase, we take into account the environment and potential triggers when crafting our action plan. A professional gain tools to work successfully with other professionals and team(s).
A Training for Professionals and Teams: Career Guidance Program for Teams
It is possible to have individual or group /project team sessions.
We do all 4 sessions of the strengths-based assessment and review together professional’s profile (or profiles if group session). The benefit of group work is that is possible to observe co-workers from this new strengths-based perspective. You review together your team profile to gaining valuable insights about team’s strengths and weaknesses.
I will propose resources in order to be able to do observation of the team.
Strength Profile Assessment results for professionals provide also some career suggestions very helpful in case of better use of team’s talents.
