According to a recent Gallup study, professionals whose occupation draws upon their strengths every day are 6 times as engaged on the job, and teams that focus on their strengths are 12.5% more productive.
Clearly, it’s important to know your strengths and the strengths of those you manage, which is why the Alchemy team has embraced Gallup’s StrengthsFinder work since it was first launched in 2001. We use it to develop leaders because it is unparalleled in its ability to help employees identify and leverage their unique strengths for the best organizational outcomes.
We begin by identifying employees and teams who are engaged in their work but not realizing their potential. By helping them identify the strengths they have and the strengths they need to reach their goals, we increase involvement in their work and productivity. We attach those strengths to visual roadmaps so team members can put their strategic thinking, relationship building, influencing and executive strengths to use on a daily basis.
The result is an organization of leaders, each making an impact on the mission. Plus, an understanding of how each and every person contributes to positive results can do wonders for job satisfaction levels.
ASG also coaches current leaders to use StrengthsFinder to develop new leaders . Our goal is to transform each organization we work with into a strengths-based organization where everyone is actively engaged and thriving. We leave our clients ready to put their strengths to use in all business situations, but particularly during the execution phases of their strategic plans.
