Knowing or understanding our strengths is not enough to lead to living and working together in optimal ways.

To unleash the power of our strengths, we have to know how to strategically and effectively use our strengths in consistent ways that allow us to co-create sustained high energy and performance experiences for ourselves and others, and which will shift us towards better relationships and results.

Understanding and unlocking strengths drive 85 percent of all performance. It impacts individual performance, high performance teamwork, engagement, trust, employee retention, customer engagement and loyalty, operating income, productivity, safety incidents, absenteeism, energy and wellbeing, diversity and inclusion.

Every person can experience greater engagement and happiness in their work and personal life if they take personal responsibility for, and are motivated to create and maintain optimal performance and energy. They just need to clearly SEE how they could leverage the power of their strengths.


“Performance swims in the ocean of relationships and is connected to the wise application of strengths”
DeAnna Murphy (Founder and CEO: People Acuity™, Top 100 Global Coaching Leader, Author: Shift Up! Strengths Strategies for Optimal Living)
