Based on more than 40 years of clinical studies, Gallup has developed the "strength finder", a tool that identifies the specific talents of each employee.
Gallup interviewed more than 10 million people around the world by asking them the following statement:
"At work, I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day”.
Only 30% responded with "strongly agree". The study found that all those who answered "disagree" or "strongly disagree" were demotivated and not very engaged in their work. The margin for progression is therefore immense.
For many years, healthcare has studied and analyzed diseases and disorders rather than understanding what makes people happy and healthy. In management, it's the same. Performance reviews have often focused on improving the employee's weaknesses rather than maximizing and utilizing strengths and talents.
To know our talents and those of the members of the team allows us to make them resonate, to turn them into music in order to create an extraordinary symphony.
The strength finder highlights our 5 main talents. If the employee has the opportunity to use them in theirfield, then they will turn them into strengths and performance.
A strength is a predisposition to think, feel and act in an authentic and energizing way that leads to giving the best of oneself and the best results.
