Everyone has strengths and the potential to develop them to be the best they can be.
Strengths are a natural pathway that leads to flourishing results—for students, teachers and the whole school. Research shows that knowing and growing our strengths helps us feel energised and engaged. We learn faster, perform better and strive to do our best every day. When combining our strengths with others and assisting them to use theirs, we build stronger and more co-operative relationships, enabling greater collaboration and teamwork.
This free booklet, Working with Strengths in Schools, by Ali Palmer and our Growing Great Schools team introduces you to practical strategies you can apply to cultivate strengths in yourself and at any level of your school.
You will learn:
- Recent research about strengths
- How to know and grow strengths
- Ways to work with strengths with school leaders, teachers, staff, students and families
- Resources to continue your strengths journey.
We look forward to helping you know and grow your strengths!
