“Leveraging Your Gifts to Close Your Gaps”

When is the last time you spent time thinking about what you’re good at? We are trained to focus on what we need to improve, or do better, rather than focusing on what we are already good at.

Special talents lie within each of us. These talents are best understood as gifts, and these gifts are our strengths. The process to tap these strengths is awareness, acknowledgement and practice. Practice of these gifts leads to the talent becoming a core skill. This occurs when we share these unique talents with others.

Engage with us to discover your top 5 strengths, your “gifts”. You will acquire actionable insights on how to leverage those strengths to become the best version of yourself; professionally and personally. In understanding your own unique talents, you will learn to recognize the unique talents in others.

As organizations evolve, becoming more complex, the demands placed upon staff to be productive is essential. According to Gallup, employees are 8% more productive if they use their strengths at work and 15% less likely to quit their jobs. Learning to cultivate talent from within enables your organization to position itself to adapt to ever-changing business climates. This understanding and development of in- house strengths helps drive business initiatives within your organization.

Traditional Performance Management practices focus on what we need to improve rather than focus on what we are doing well. By shifting the focus from gap to gifts and nurturing employee talents, their potential is limitless.
