Why Is Strengths-Based Leadership Important?
A strengths-based approach can benefit your leadership and your team's performance in several ways. Our strengths define who we are. They make us unique. The surprising part is many people do not know their strengths and others do not effectively use them.
To the extent we can use our strengths, people are six times more likely to be “engaged” in their jobs and more than three times more likely to declare they have an “excellent quality of life in general,” according to research from the Gallup organization. Yet often feedback focuses on our weaknesses and what we don’t do well. Instead of telling your team members what they are doing wrong, (which, even if true, could be demoralizing), a strengths-based approach focuses on what a team member does best, and deals with weaknesses with a positive spin, which is more impactful.
Gallup scientists have turned toward the study of leaders and managers to discover what the best leaders have in common and how to develop those leadership attributes. They studied 1 million work teams, conducted 20,000 detailed leadership interviews, and over 10,000 individual contributors to find their answer.
