Are you a glass half full or half empty type person? If you are the latter maybe you need to take a look at the research on strengths. The focus on strengths – what we have or what’s strong rather than what we don’t have or what’s wrong – is fast becoming a dominant approach in schools and workplaces. Your strengths are your secrets of success so why wouldn’t we focus more of our energy on maximising these than worrying too much on building our weaknesses – which often takes far more energy and produces inferior results? Food for thought.

If you would like to know what your strengths are go to and take the test. It’s free to do. Utilising your strengths has implications for your satisfaction, wellbeing and performance, so make today the start of your new strengths based approach to life.
