Strengths-based management

2 jour(s)


  • How to ritualise what one does best to achieve immediate and consistent results
  • How to identify the skills of everyone
  • How to enable every co-worker to express his/her strengths
  • How to develop in order to achieve excellence on certain skills

Strengths-based management is the ideal solution to meet these challenges.

This approach, which we will call "positive leadership", is based on the combination of three proven pillars/theories:

1. Appreciative inquiry: Studying what one does best in order to replicate it and capitalise on it
2. Positive psychology: Promoting self-development and self-fulfilment
3. Strengths theory: You're never better than when you use your strengths, because you can never win by focusing on your weaknesses

This course offers a clear, structured approach to strengths-based management, relying on simple, proven concepts and effective tools.


By the end of the training participants will be able to:

  • Identify their colleagues’ strengths and drivers
  • Understand and apply strengths-based management
  • Explain and share effective development tools
  • Replicate and ritualise successful environments and situations
  • Implement a positive-leadership management style

  • Gallup’s 34-strengths technique

  • The 3-zone concept
  • The 4 development modes and the 70/20/10 approach
  • How to implement joint development
  • Promoting collective intelligence
  • Listening and questioning techniques
4) Development objectives and actions
  • Creating one’s development matrix
  • Identifying development objectives which are specific and ambitious but achievable
  • Observing the 80/20 strengths-to-weaknesses ratio
  • Capitalising on high added-value development actions
5) Implementing the development
  • Mapping one’s skills with regard to one's business assignments
