Why is a strengths-based workplace and culture important?
- You want to hire and keep your productive, positive employees
- You want to minimize the “bad apples” in your organization
- You want to see your department and the organization overall be profitable
- You want to get the most out of your employees (hopefully, in a benevolent kind of way)
- You want to keep your customers
- You want to offer a GREAT job to your employees (Defined by Gallup, a “great job is a job in which you believe your boss cares about your development, you can use your strengths every day at work, and you believe your work makes a contribution to something.”)
Are problems cropping up in your organization, but you’re not sure what the source is?
What if, instead, a person (and her manager) maximized her gifts to the fullest? Isn’t that what Olympic athletes do? Maximize their strengths, gifts, and talents? They compete passionately and sometimes receive medals for their efforts.
Here’s a thought: what if you saw each person in your organization as a potential Olympic athlete in their area? What would that do for your organization?
Employees who receive strengths-based development have:
- 7%-23% higher employee engagement
- 8%-18% increased performance
- 20%-73% lower attrition
The Shuler Group offers a 3-phase approach when we work with companies and organizations to bring strengths-based thinking and training into companies.

And it’s not just with your employees. 70% variance in employee engagement is caused by managers. According to Jim Clifton, Chairman and CEO of Gallup, “Leaders everywhere in the world have a tendency to name the wrong person manager and then train them on administrative things — not how to maximize human potential.”
Creating a strengths-based workplace and culture works on two fronts: first with managers and leaders, and second with the employees organization-wide.
As a leader and a manager, the best thing you can do for your team and staff is to help each person be aware of their:
- Strengths in action: How do our feelings, thoughts, and behaviors play out on a daily basis?
- Unique contribution to the team or organization: What is each person’s Zone of Genius?
“Only 2 in 10 employees strongly agree that their performance is managed in a way that motivates them to do outstanding work.” – Gallup’s Re-Engineering Performance Management Report
