Gallup has studied thousands of work teams and millions of leaders, managers and employees and discovered the significant potential in developing what is innately 'right' with people versus trying to fix what's 'wrong' with them. A focus on employee strengths proceeds from the simple notion that we are all better at some things than others and that we would be happier and more productive if we spent more of our time doing those things.

Extensive research has found that:

This workshop gives managers and teams the tools to harness the understanding of this research, and more importantly, give the team a common language to discuss their strengths, their contributions and what each individual needs from the team to be working at their best.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • recognise your own strengths and those of your team and the power of a strengths-based approach
  • identify the 34 talent themes of  CliftonStrengths
  • recognise how different themes can support and challenge each other
  • create greater awareness in the team of each other’s strengths
  • use techniques so that the team can work more effectively together
  • aim the individual strengths into achieving the team’s goals.


  • Increasing the team’s awareness of the principles of strengths-based development
  • Understanding the strengths profile of each individual in the team
  • Talents in action activity (reinforcing each other’s strengths)
  • The power of strength-based partnerships
  • The DNA of the team – exploring the team strengths profile
  • The best of us activity (how to get the best out of each member)
  • Common goals and next steps


  • Gallup CliftonStrengths assessments taken by each member of the team prior to the workshop
  • Optional but recommended – a one-on-one coaching session with each team member to give them a deeper understanding of their own profile before the team workshop

It was fantastic and the follow up strengths discovery discussion was very enlightening.

Great ideas. Good way of getting positive outcomes from staff, working to their strengths instead of weaknesses.

It was thought-provoking and a very good team building exercise.
