Develop your natural strengths


Understand what your natural strengths are. This can be identified through self-reflection, feedback from others, or formal assessments like personality tests or strengths assessments

Focus on strengths

Once identified, focus on leveraging these strengths rather than trying to fix weaknesses. Research suggests that building on strengths leads to greater satisfaction and success than trying to improve weaknesses.

Set goals

Define clear goals that align with your strengths. This could involve choosing projects, roles, or activities where your strengths can shine.

Continuous improvement

Even though strengths come naturally, they still require nurturing and development. Seek opportunities to enhance your skills related to your strengths through learning, practice, and feedback.

Seek feedback

Regularly solicit feedback from peers, mentors, or supervisors to understand how effectively you are utilizing your strengths and where there may be room for improvement.

Challenge yourself

While it's important to work within your strengths, it's also beneficial to occasionally push yourself out of your comfort zone. This can help you expand your capabilities and discover new strengths.


Partner with others who have complementary strengths. Collaboration can enhance your own strengths and create synergies that lead to better outcomes.
