Our approach

We make use of different methods, with the main one being the strengths-based approach that has it’s origins in the science of positive psychology. Our strengths are the underlying qualities that energise us and we are naturally good at or have the potential to become great at (source: strengthscope). Read more on the benefits of the strengths-based approach below.

You are truly unique!

No two individuals have the same “strengths” profile. Strengths-based assessments assume that we are all unique and that our path to success is different for each one of us.
We often focus on the specific skills, knowledge and behaviors that we associate with success in a particular job/position. However, unlike competencies, strengths relate to you as a person and not to your job title.

Competencies vs. strengths

Whilst our strengths reflect what energizes us, competencies are learned skills, knowledge and behaviors we have developed over the years. We are therefore not necessarily energized by our competencies in the same way as our strengths. You can learn to excel at something, but if you don’t use your natural strengths in doing so, you may have achieved a great performance, but it probably also cost you a lot of energy.

Source of intrinsic motivation

Strengths are those qualities that constantly motivate and energize you throughout your life and career. Strengths boost your performance by giving you energy to stick with the task and learn new skills and productive habits so you can perform even better in these areas. When we are doing work that plays to our strengths, we feel more engaged and happy in our jobs and lives.

“Focusing on strengths helps people unlock their passion so that they can achieve peak performance in areas that are better aligned with their talents and personality”
