Enable Strengths

Why train a Clifton-Strengths approach in your leaders?

Does your team need a framework to help them understand themselves better? Clifton Strengths is an excellent framework for people to map how they fit in to a team. Instead of focusing just on deficiencies, Clifton Strengths allows team members to see their value and the value of others, so talents can be maximised and different working styles understood.

What leaders will explore

  • Clifton Strengths reports for each person
  • An analysis of the team’s strengths map
  • Strengths from the ‘balcony’ versus ‘basement’
  • Seeing the value of diversity in strengths
  • Designing key tasks for different strengths

What leaders will apply

  • Ability to see things through a strengths lens
  • Deeper understanding of their team’s strengths
  • Ways to maximise strengths productively
  • Ability to manage ‘strengths in the basement’
  • Strategic task design using a strengths lens

Thinka provided us with valuable insights and content that really hit the mark with our leadership group. The turnaround time between initial discussions, to bringing the session to life was exceptional and the outcome was great!

    Our in-person workshops maximise opportunities for robust conversation, experiential activities and intensive group work. This is no ‘death by PowerPoint’ experience – our facilitators are skilled in presenting and leading immersive experiences that get the most out of people. Supported by multimedia, attractive takeaway pages and practical strategies for using back on the job – our in-person workshops build a formidable bridge between exploration and application. We have a 10 person minimum for an in person workshop.

    Our virtual workshops breathe fresh life into the online experience with their almost ‘radio show’ feel. Our expert facilitators use a combination of multimedia, questioning techniques and break out activities to target micro-skills – with a focus on application. Supported by an online platform hosting custom-built workshop materials, participants can be assured of a lively, dynamic session that has a distinct bias to action. We have a 6 person minimum for a virtual workshop.
    This audience includes ‘middle management’ leaders who support team members in capability building. The skills are geared toward increasing leadership effectiveness and driving performance in team members in modern work contexts. These skills are flexible and built to grow with individuals as they evolve in their leadership journeys.

    Thinka believes that every learner needs to walk away being able to do something differently once they’ve engaged in a learning solution. The real power is in every individual applying their learning. Our behaviour-based methods, supported by the latest research, are key to making the steps for change relevant and realistic.

    Thinka supports with methods like storytelling, experiential activities or rich questioning, but ultimately, we know the integration between solution and real world is the most crucial part of the learning experience. That is why we look for ways to ‘build a bridge’ between the solution we provide and what happens back out on the job.

    Whether it’s an application template, a set of strategies, some tips or a ‘how to’ model – we work hard to provide every learner with not just information but the tools they need to make a real difference.
