10 Strength-based Performing Teams Nearly a decade ago, Gallup unveiled the results of a landmark 30-year research project that ignited a global conversation on the topic of strengths. More than 3 million people have since taken Gallup's StrengthsFinder assessment, which forms the core of several books on this topic, including the #1 international bestseller StrengthsFinder 2.0.

11 Strengths Based Teamwork

12 Gallup Research They studied more than one million work teams, conducted more than 20,000 in-depth interviews with leaders, and even interviewed more than 10,000 followers around the world to ask exactly why they followed the most important leader in their life.

13 About Strength Based Leadership Strengths Based Leadership will give you a new roadmap for leading people toward a better future.

14 Vision, Leadership, Focus

15 Food for Thought Your actions as CEO will be absolutely crucial, so first of all you have to be very committed to what you are going to do. If you really are, people will follow you. If you think you don't have to walk the talk, it won't work at all." --Roberto Setubal, CEO of Itau Unibanco, in The McKinsey QuarterlyThe McKinsey Quarterly

16 Research Work To help people uncover their talents, Gallup introduced the first version of its online assessment, StrengthsFinder, in the 2001 management book Now, Discover Your Strengths. The book spent more than five years on the bestseller lists and ignited a global conversation, while StrengthsFinder helped millions to discover their top five talents.

17 Knowing our Strength “ Most people think they know what they are good at. They are usually wrong…..And yet, a person can perform only from strength --Business guru, Peter Drucker ( )

18 When you’re not able to use your strengths at work, chances are that you Dread going to work Have more negative than positive interactions wit colleagues Treat your customers poorly Tell your friends what a miserable company you for w for Achieve less on a daily basis Have fewer positive and creative moments

19 What are Strengths?  Talents  Skills  Knowledge  Interests  Dreams/Hopes/Goals  Creativity  Culture  Passion  Connections

20 Assessment Tools Strengths Finder 2.0 What is it? How do you use it?

21 The 34 Themes Results of the research are 34 themes that were developed that became the common language for talent. These are very specific terms that describe what people do well.

22 Themes of Talent 34 themes Common language Classification of talents

23 Talent = Multiplier Most successful people start with dominate talent – and then add skills, knowledge and practice to the mix. This raw talent serves as a multiplier TALENT (a natural way of thinking, feeling or behaving X Investment (time spent practicing, developing your skills, and building your knowledge base) = Strength (the ability to consistently provide near-perfect performance)

25 Self Management self-management is defined as … the component of emotional intelligence that frees us from being a prisoner of our feelings. It’s what allows the mental clarity and concentrated energy that leadership demands … Leaders with such self-mastery embody an upbeat, optimistic enthusiasm that tunes resonance to the positive range (Goleman et al. p. 46).

26 About Leaders Leaders are able to know themselves, their strengths, and to build on those strengths with an optimistic outlook related to their ability to succeed. Great leaders can call on their strengths at the right time Effective leaders surround themselves with the right people and build on each persons strengths.

27 Leadership & Teams Leaders face the challenge of building effective teams. The key to effectiveness is hiring well, providing ongoing training, and working intentionally at teambuilding. Effective team-building is more than off-site sessions with ropes courses and “getting to know you exercises”. Leadership is developing, with some promising results. It begins, however, with the leader knowing her/himself.

28 Value of Engaging Staff- If you are able to help the people you lead focus on their strengths, it will dramatically boost engagement levels throughout your organization.

29 Three Keys to being an effective Leader 1. Knowing your strengths and investing in others' strengths, 2. Getting people with the right strengths on your team, 3. Understanding and meeting the four basic needs of those who look to you for leadership.

30 What the Research Shows People who do have opportunity to focus on their strengths every day are six times as likely to be engaged in their jobs and more than three times as likely to report having an excellent quality of life in general

31 Team Composition When you think about how you can contribute to a team and who you need to surround yourself with, consider the 4 Domains of leadership Strength. Each of these Domains, have talent themes representing a classification of talents.
