building a strengths-based culture

Your people are your greatest asset, and when you invest in your people and help them develop their full potential, your organization will be more productive, efficient and profitable. 

Strengths development is an approach that allows people to maximize their full potential by helping them better understand who they are and how to reach excellence at work.  Rather than encouraging weakness "fixing", this approach focuses on leveraging a person's natural talents to reach higher levels of performance.

Gallup research shows that people do their best work when they can focus on what they are naturally good at. When people have the opportunity to work in their area of strength, they are more energized about their work and have more positive, creative and innovative moments.

People who use their strengths are...

  • 6x more likely to be engaged at work

  • 7.8% more productive in their role

  • 3x more likely to have an excellent quality of life

This increase of engagement and productivity ultimately drives up performance and leads to a more successful organization. 


Strengths-based cultures focus on recognizing each employee’s strengths and applying those strengths productively at work. Strengths become an integral part of the organization, being incorporated in every aspect of the organization, from onboarding to project management to performance management.


Strengths-based organisations succeed because:

  • They engage their employees.

  • They surround employees with managers who coach them to maximize their potential.

  • They provide an exceptional employee experience.


Organisations who have invested in strengths development have obtained benefits ranging from:

  • 10% to 19% increased sales

  • 14% to 29% increased profit

  • 3% to 7% higher customer engagement

  • 6% to 16% lower turnover (low-turnover organizations)

  • 26% to 72% lower turnover (high-turnover organizations)

  • 9% to 15% increase in engaged employees

  • 22% to 59% fewer safety incidents
