Understand Strengths

Why train a Clifton-Strengths approach in your team?

Workplaces in the past have tended to focus on people’s weaknesses, which is hardly inspiring. Ultimately, a performance review communicating all the things that are ‘wrong’ won’t improve results. Using a supportive framework like Clifton Strengths, means we can frame performance constructively–making these conversations easier and more relatable.

What teams will explore

  • Your Clifton Strengths report
  • Team members’ Clifton Strengths results
  • Strengths from the ‘balcony’ and ‘basement’
  • Relating your Strengths to your work
  • Understanding the four Strengths domains

What teams will apply

  • An understanding of your Strengths
  • An awareness of the team’s Strengths
  • An ability to use Strengths productively
  • Strategies for dialling up your Strengths
  • Strategic use of team strengths in projects

It was so nice to be encouraged to stop looking at improving my weaknesses and focusing on improving my strengths, it has really changed my mindset and allowed me to grow as a person and within my role.

    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 team members who are developing skills to perform their role with greater capability. The skills are geared toward increasing personal and professional effectiveness and are transferable across different contexts – making them last as they move through their career development journey.
    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.
