The strengths work in organisations and beyond
Even before the pandemic, there was a big change happening within progressive organisations as they switched to a strengths approach. COVID, along with #BlackLivesMatter, has meant many employers wanting to create more humane working environments that recognise people for who they are and that are welcoming to all.
Since I set up Engaging Minds, the early adopters have embraced the strengths approach. The switch to wide-spread homeworking and the pressure on people caused by COVID has accelerated the interest in strengths.
