Success is Achieved by Developing Our Strengths,
Not by Eliminating Our Weaknesses.

“Focus on your strengths and manage your weaknesses.” This statement is a great balancing act that shatters the age-old philosophy that advocates improving on your weaknesses to achieve success.

For most of us, when we set out to work on our weaknesses, we can only hope to go from poor to average; but when we focus on our strengths, going from good to great is a more rewarding and a satisfying journey.

Naman believes in partnering with individuals & organizations to help them discover their strengths and maximize on it. While your focus should be on strengths, one cannot ignore weaknesses, rather one need to learn to manage them. Adopting strengths-based development is the right way to go about it. Naman, through its strengths-based development interventions, helps leaders, individuals and teams to build awareness and confidence on their strengths, while providing powerful insights on how to leverage them.

Understanding a Strengths-Based Approach

Most organizations waste their time and efforts in identifying what’s lacking in their employees and spend money on training them in those areas. However, this leads to a mediocre win. A better way to do this is to invest in your employees’ strengths. A strengths-based organization creates employees who are emotionally engaged in their work, resulting in employee retention, better productivity and profitability. Strengths-based approach ensures that employee efforts are not wasted but are collaborative and exponentially more valuable.

Advantages of Using a Strength-Based Approach to Improve Organization’s Overall Performance

For Employees:

Believing in their strengths enhances their confidence in their contributions, improves their engagement in their tasks and processes, and enriches their working lives.

For Organizations:

The organizations will begin to notice a sizeable decrease in employee turnover and impressive gains in the following areas:

  • Employee engagement
  • Innovation
  • Sales
  • Customer engagement
  • Profit

Through strengths-based development interventions, you will find that selecting and working with employees on the right strengths is more productive than training the wrong employees to do the job right.

  • The learner picks 3 behaviors during the workshop which he closely monitors over a span of 90 days to see how it has changed for him.
  • The learner could see how his 3 closest skills related to his talent themes have become more matured and strengthened.
  • The best measure for such a workshop is the ability of the learner to help others realize and utilize their strengths and that is exactly the beginning of a strengths culture.
