"Strengths lead to Engagement lead to Productivity."
Most workplace management focuses on year-end reviews and pointing out employees’ faults. Gallup’s StrengthsFinder is based on positive psychology and allows people to work together and be engaged in the workplace. Engagement increases productivity 200%.
Great managers let employees do what they do best. Strengths can change depending on where you are in life.
