In the spirit of Advantaged Thinking, where better to start than with your strengths! Here’s an exercise to help you reflect on your AT starting point.

AT character strengths

Review the four character strengths below. Which one resonates with you most? You’ll probably identify with several, but just pick one:

  • Spotting and developing talent. Do you find it easy to identify strengths and positive qualities in others?
  • Empathetic, compassionate and reflective. Can you lead with empathy seeking to understand the experiences of others?
  • Brave and challenges negativity. Do you challenge deficit based thinking and behaviour?
  • Creative thinker. Can you think and act with creativity and verve?

Which one do you draw on most in your work?

Which one do you draw on most outside of work?

Can you see how these crossover?

Which one would you like to develop?
