8 Tips On How To Find Strengths At Work

Download to read offline

Do you ever feel unhappy or unsatisfied at work?

It could be because you’re not working to your strengths and putting yourself in position to succeed. It’s not easy to do, but with some help, you can figure out your strengths at work and how best to utilize them.

A survey conducted last year found that roughly one-third of employees believed their manager could identify their best strengths in the workplace.

This leaves two-thirds of the workforce without a boss who could help them focus on their strengths, which is a rather high number if you ask me.

Of the group that did not have proper guidance from their boss, only half were able to identify their strengths on their own and only a quarter of them actually felt engaged and happy with their work.

This seems like a problem to us.

Luckily, I’ve managed to put together these eight methods for how to find strengths at work.

Hopefully, one or more of them will be your key to helping you work to your strengths better in the future.
