One of the things I love most about strengths is it gives us the ability to truly appreciate the diversity each of us brings to the table. So often when we talk about diversity we focus on our differences, focusing on gender or race, but those are just our wrappers, the obvious ones and we have so much more to offer.
Knowing someone’s strengths allows us deeper insight into what sets us apart. This takes more time and intentionality but the reward is great. Asking questions like: What do my teammates bring to the table? What do I bring to the table? How do we each look at and solve problems? How can we celebrate and embrace our differences? Having a diverse team celebrates and capitalizes on our differences to achieve our goals.
The world of strengths is a beautiful place. Come join me, I am pretty confident you’ll love it.
