Honor Diversity Through Strengths
Comments Off on Honor Diversity Through Strengths

We had a great discussion recently about using your strengths at work. As we moved from understanding your own strengths to understanding your colleagues’ strengths, one person said, “this exercise helps me to better honor what each team member brings to the team.”

Know your strengths

That is such a great way to think about understanding and appreciating strengths in others. Not only does it help you understand the motivation and capabilities of your teammates, but it allows you to honor what they do best and where they excel. Once we can honor what each person brings to the team, we can move beyond our differences, and see how we can help each other achieve even better outcomes together. This is what will help us build trust.
