Event: Playing to your strengths with StrongSuits® by Ryan Behrman

Date: 8th February | Time: 1730 hours GMT

Employees who have managers who focus on their strengths are more likely to feel engaged and energized at work (Ref. The Gallup Organisation).

There is significant evidence that innovation in teams actually comes from diversity of strengths rather than individual competencies, and that acknowledging each other’s strengths and communication styles helps to build environments that are psychologically safe. This has profound implications for developing ourselves as emotionally intelligent team members, managers and leaders who understand and can coach individuals and teams to play to their strengths, but also for us to understand where those strengths can become limitations and where we can get in our own way.

This presentation will draw on science from positive psychology and systemic fields that underpin StrongSuits®, a strengths-based team and personal development tool that uses playing cards and games to help teams have fun and feel energised whilst generating high-impact conversations about how people behave and how they can develop.
