The results of the SP tool will help individuals become more self-aware. You will be able to use your strengths to support weaknesses and learned behaviours and tap into your unrealised strengths or hidden talents helping you to grow and flourish. For teams and managers, Strengths Profiling will help build a strengths-based environment and a high performing team. A manager will be able to delegate according to strengths, set goals according to unrealised strengths, and understand the impact of weaknesses on a team members role.
Students often do not know how to talk about their strengths. As well as increasing self-awareness, the strengths profile equips students with the language needed for making applications to college/university, and work placements. It also helps build self-confidence for school and social interactions generally, and in identifying potential careers and sectors based on their strengths.
