Why should we not focus on strengths?

Why should we not focus on strengths?

Some organisations have adopted an approach where they identify people’s strengths and ensure that those strengths are used appropriately. This undoubtedly is a positive way forward.

The downside is that they ignore the potential strengths that are available to them within all their staff and not just those that have been picked out as having talents. If you only progress people whose potential strengths have been observed, then the remaining staff, which will be the majority, are likely to become disengaged.

In fact, research shows that 80% of UK workers are already disengaged.
